Long neck tribe (Kayan people)

Long Neck Tribe Myanmar

Women of the long neck tribe (Kayan people), a Tibeto-Burman ethnic minority of Myanmar.
Although visiting the long neck women is a controversial topic, these people already depend on the income visitors donate to them, and there is not much one can do to change this (visitors are mainly local Burmese and Thais). We have visited this Kayan family in a remote village in Shan state, Myanmar.
It was not clear if the young girl’s neck rings are permanent or not.
