Long neck tribe

What kind of tribe is this long neck tribe? why have these women kept this ethical exotic customs for thousands of years? it's said local women all want to have long necks like their gods: long-neck dragons. In general local girls start to wear copper collars from 5 years old. 


Long Neck Tribe lives in a remote village, about 30 km away from Mae Hong Son Town of Thailand, here is very quiet like another world.


Because of the unique value in tourism, Long Neck Tribe not only has gained a foothold in Thailand, but also has become a famous controversial travel destination. In fact their necks are as long as ours, but their collarbone and shoulder bone have sunk due to the oppression of copper collars.
