Mountain Lady

This is of the many members of ethnic minorities in the Central Highlands of Lam Dong Province Vietnam. One distinctive item found on many of these tribal people are the baskets they wear on their back. This woman is carrying wood for charcoal production which is one of their stable industries. The various groups in this region are the Kinh, Co Ho, Ma, Hoa, Nung, Tay, and the Chu Ru ethnic minorities. This photo was taken along the road just before dusk.
