Inhabited by about 226 villagers, Ban Ja Boe is a lovely local community in Pang Mapha County, Mae Hong Son Province. Most of villagers are Lahu people, all of whom Mr.Jaboe Prainetitam led from Huai Yao to get away from a plague. And that’s why the community was named ‘Ja Boe’.

The lovely thing of the village is, most of villagers are relatives. Also, they still wear their traditional costumes and speak their native language.

Ban Ja Boe is a peaceful village worthy of visiting. Villagers live their lives simply, farming, raising animals, harvesting wild objects and working as employees.
