Lisu: Northern Thai hill tribe

Villages of this colourful ethnic group are originally from southwest China. They can be found in China, India, Myanmar. A few drifted into North Thailand from Burma [ Kengtung ] and can now be found at Fang, Mae Hong Son, Sukhothai Tak, Khampaeng Phet, Phayao, Lampang and Chiang Rai. Lisu’s women wear brightly colored blue or green colored striped tunics, split up the sides to the waist, a wide black belt and blue or green pants.
