1 Day Trek: Weaving

Duration: 1 day
From: The Mirror Foundation, Chiang Rai
A programme for those who like to trek, are relatively fit, and interested in learning about traditional weaving

After picking you up, and giving you a short presentation at our foundation headquarters in the heart of the countryside, our guide will take you on a journey through the forest, visiting a number of traditional hilltribe villages, and taking a deserved break at a local waterfall. Lunch will be cooked on the trail, using traditional methods.

In the afternoon, you will learn about traditional weaving techniques using a hand loom, also learning about natural dyes and their sources.

Although we recommend a minimum of two people in a group - to reduce costs, but also so you have someone to share the experience with - we occasionally have requests from solo travellers who wish to book a tour. As our tours are private, the group would consist of the individual and our guide. We no longer offer to add a solo traveller to an existing group.
Solo travellers unfortunately have to pay a higher price as we have a number of set costs which we cannot reduce. This means that the per person fee is higher than the per person fee of a booking for 2 people.
