    At the weekly talad nut at Ban Chambong downstream from Chiang Khong I noticed numerous Hmong stalls selling new year costumes, so enquired about Hmong New Year.

    The reply was that around Wiang Kaen Hmong New Year 2019 will be 6/7 January 2019.

    This roughly aligns with the new moon, so it may actually be possible some other Hmong villages maybe celebrating around new moon in December too - Laos? Keep an eye out for it.

    Closer to Phu Chi Fah, Ban Huai Khu is supposed to be hosting a big one. Huai Khu is on the Nong Tao - Huai San - Phu Chi Fah road.

    The Huai Khu School: Google Maps

    Huai Leng a mountain top Royal Project village also has one going on this week: Google Maps
    The road to Huai Leng is super steep and has amazing views for the adventurous.

    Tung Na Noi out of Chiang Khong has another starting today.
