The journey will begin at 9:00am at a designated place, where you will visit the local museum and get some insight into the livelihoods of local communities that reside in and around the Luang Namtha valley. At 10 a.m., you will cycle to a nearby waterfall and also visit the village of the Lanten minority. Depending on the season of the year, if it is the bamboo shoots season when you decide to take this trip, you can learn the technique of bamboo paper-making. Bamboo paper-making is a handicraft popular among the Lanten people. By 1 p.m., you will break for lunch, a much well-deserved break at the Lao restaurant! After lunch, you will cycle to three more village spots- the Taidam, Tailue and Akha minority villages. Here, you can take a closer look at the art techniques used in silk production, coloring with natural dyes, making handicrafts, and also understanding the functioning of the local alcohol distillery! From here, you will cycle a little more and finally walk up steep steps of the Stupa’s vantage point to observe a rather breathtaking panoramic view of Luang Namtha with its surroundings. Feel blissful and rewarded having accomplished so many activities in a day!
