RICE IN THE MORNING, FALLS IN THE AFTERNOON (L)
Do you want to know what it takes to cultivate, harvest and prepare rice before it’s ready to eat?
This unique half-day ‘Rice is Life’ activity takes you on an in depth and hands-on learning experience where you will participate in 14 steps of the rice cycle on the Living Land community farm.
The Living Land Farm, a community enterprise just outside of Luang Prabang, maintains educational programs and professional organic farming right next to village rice paddies. Only small groups are able to join the interactive rice farming experience which actively benefits locals from the community, maintaining their crafts in their traditional form. You’ll also learn about bamboo weaving, tool and trap making, gardening and even blacksmithing.
After a special rice snack at the farm we’ll take a scenic drive along the Mekong River to have lunch at the the beautiful Kuang Si Waterfall. You’ll have plenty of time to swim, explore, and photograph the waterfalls as well as you stroll through the lush surrounding jungle. On our return trip, your guide will take you through a locally made Hmong Culture Museum for a great introduction to the fascinating culture and life of one of Laos’ main ethnicities.
The tour concludes late afternoon in Luang Prabang City.
Note: All the family can join in (children over 10 years can join actively) and there are many great photo opportunities, a perfect family experience.
