Lanjia Lodge - Experience Hmong (2 days)

Itinerary – Arrival Morning (LJEX2A)

 

DAY 1 (Includes lunch and dinner)

09.00: Arrive at Lanjia Lodge. Local herbal juice will be served during check-in. Afterwards, you will see a presentation about the Hmong and Lahu tribes, the Golden Triangle area, and the giant catfish (locally known as Pla Buek) – the world's largest freshwater fish found in the Mekong River. Learn about activities that affect the Mekong River and the people whose lives depend on the river.

10.00: Visit the Hmong and Lahu hill tribe village, including a visit to the shaman's house. Drink tea with the shaman and discover why the fireplace is important for Hmongs and why they bury their newborn babies' umbilical cords.
