They came south from China centuries ago, though an estimated 100,000 still live in China. Their appearance and dress are striking.

Discover the diversity of the north with a visit to the local market where hilltribes from around the region come to trade their wares, stop at a palace of a former H’mong king and take a walk through Pho Bang town surrounded by mountains whose peaks are hidden by clouds all the year round. It is after 9 o’clock in the morning, but the town is still so quiet. In a house some elderly villagers are sitting and quietly chatting around the fireplace. Sitting in an old traditional earthen house, visitors experience a peaceful existence allowing them to contemplate the surrounding traditional beauty and wholesomeness; stone fences imprinted with the builders’ compassion for his work, ears of corn bundled together and hung to dry from the rafters or listen to the entertaining banter of neighbors.

Hmong are part of the Miao people, the term “Miao” is most common within China, but “Hmong” is usually used elsewhere. There are many subgroups of the Miao and many speak mutually unintelligible dialects. The Hmong are a friendly, affectionate people who enjoy music, festivals and entertaining guests. It is a paradox that they are also known as fierce warriors. They live in close-knit communities, usually made up of a single clan, or at most two. Extended families live in wooden houses that stand on stilts — short on the uphill side and long on the downhill side. Many homes have three stories, the top for grain storage, the middle for the family, and the lower for animals and storage.
