Photographer's Note

I took this picture in Doi Inthanon National Park, Thailand's highest peak (2565m). Along with the abundant wildlife, some spectacular waterfalls can be found within the park, the most dramatic being Vajirathan waterfall, which drops 100 meters. Above 1,900 meters a delightful cloud forest takes hold, hiding lichens, mosses, and orchids. The mountain's summit is covered with magnolia, rhododendron, and a thriving population of sunbirds.

Doi Inthanon contains several hill tribe villages, most of them Hmong and Karen. Those 2 brothers are Hmong. The Hmong are scattered throughout many countries, including China, Laos, Vietnam and Thailand. Within Thailand they are found in many provinces, including Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phayao, Nan, Phrae, Mae Hong Son and Tak. They belong to the Meo-Yao branch of the Austro-Thai linguistic group. The Hmong are the second largest tribal group after the Karen.

I hope you will like this picture. :)
