Meet at the Discovering Laos office at 9:00am. Our first stop on the cycling tour is at the local museum for an excellent insight into the traditional way of life for the people and minorities of Luang Namtha province. At 10:00am we set off for a nearby waterfall, visiting a Lantan minority village on the way. Here we can see first-hand the techniques involved in making bamboo paper, a popular handicraft attributed to the Lantan people.
We continue on to the minority villages of the Tai Dam, Tai Lue and Akha people to learn about the diverse culture of these tribes, soaking up the knowledge from our guide. We stop for a tasty Lao lunch at an authentic local restaurant.
At the local minority villages discover the unique methods involved in silk production and colouring with natural dyes, making of handicrafts, and alcohol distillery. After touring the local minority villages, we drive a few kilometers to a magnificent stupa with stunning panoramic views across Luang Namtha. Depending on the group’s decision, there is the option to visit another stupa and a Buddhist monastery. At around 4:00pm the tour comes to an end and we head back to the Discovering Laos office in Luang Namtha.
