This July 21, 2012 photo shows a typical house in the Akha hill tribe village that is home to Akha Hill guest house. Perched at the head of a curving valley on the slopes of Doi Hang mountain, most of the village houses are still made of traditional bamboo, raised on stilts with covered outdoor platforms. But a few concrete houses have appeared, and even a handful of satellite dishes poking from the thatched rooftops. (Associated Press)
