Naka, a Lahu Minority village, is a remote place that is not even indicated on the maps. It lies on the northern end of Mengsong, between Menghai and Jinghong, not far from the highest peak in Xishuangbanna. Naka enjoys the same reputation as Nannuoshan and Banzhang in the Menghai area. The ancient tea trees growing at 2000 meters above sea level have smaller leaves with a unique aroma.
Naka is a very nice place with pure air and an amazing landscape. Because of the high altitude (1800-2000m), the environment is different from most parts of Xishuangbanna and the temperature is lower. The Naka village itself is on a mountain slope, surrounded by ancient tea gardens.
