Khmu Village Houses - Luang Prabang, Laos

The last village we visited was a Khmu village. Khmu villages are normally quite poor and most do not have electricity. This one, with a new school and new houses, was relatively well-off.

In contrast to the Hmong, the Khmu build their houses on two levels, with the main living area on stilts.
