We are a cooking school in Chiang Mai, the “Akha” people immigrated and became citizens of Thailand in the early 1900’s through China, Laos and Myanmar.
There are now 80,000 Akha people living in small villages in the mountains of Thailand.
This place is is run by Akha people who were born and raised in Thailand.
