People from six hill tribes staged a two-day festival this weekend in Chiang Rai’s Mae Sarong district.


The festival attracted a huge number of tourists. 


The festival, which began on Saturday, featured hill tribe costumes, shows, and various activities about their daily life and culture. 


Among the highlights was the Swing Ceremony. The Akha people usually stage this ritual to show their gratitude to the Goddess of Abundance and pray for good yields. The ceremony was also accompanied by celebrations and dancing. 


Tourists could also buy tribal products from locals. 


Hill tribe people from as many 26 villages took part in the event.
