information about laos  Muang SingLaos, Louangnamtha
Akha people have two roads in their town. One for entering and another one for exiting. Since they live in the middle of the countryside, once a year a ceremony is performed and the gates like the on the picture are renovated.

The purpose is to tell the spirits of the forest that this is a human village,inhabited by human people and spirits, and though not belonging to the Nature. So the Nature spirits know they can't get through. If by accident a human happens to touch the gate, it must be quickly reported to the chief, so that the ceremony is held again and the gate working properly
