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, we drive to a local waterfall, where you begin your trek. Our guide will take you on a journey through the forest, ending at a Lahu hilltribe village where you learn about traditional weaving techniques. Lunch is taken during the trek, using traditional methods of cooking.

When the workshop has finished, you trek down to an Akha village, where we pick up up to return to town.

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.
