Full description
Connect deeper with the hill tribes of Laos. Get insider access to a Hmong villager's house inside a local Khmu village. See both tribes' way of life, and how they interact and live harmoniously with each other.

Staying on a local farm, participate in lots of farm activities to immerse yourself in the culture. On your first day, meet your host family and see how they make their slingshots and Hmong wooden tops, used for hunting and playing. Prepare lunch with your host, and after your meal, learn how to make and use a crossbow. Practice playing on the Hmong wooden tops, before you take a tour around the village to see the two local Hmong and Kamu tribes. To top off your day, help your family prepare dinner.

For your second day, get up and prepare breakfast with your host family, and try your hand at making a traditional Hmong cake. Visit your host's farm and help them do a little farming, learning the ways of rural everyday life. Finally, return to Luang Prabang at around 12:00 PM.
