There about 160 ethnic groups in Laos speak a total of 82 distinct living languages. A homestay in an ethnic Lave village. Supposedly less than 350 Lave tribe members are left in the world. Lave are a subgroup of the main ethnic group called Gietrieng along with other minority subgroups Gié Dgieh, Tareh, Trieng Treng, Ve, Panoong Bnoong. The population of the Gietrieng is estimated on 27.000.
