Be welcomed into Hloyo by the village headman and residents. The hosts will give an informative introduction to the Akha people and their beliefs, religions, traditions and ways of life. Then get a more in-depth look at these customs at a museum. Housed in a mud house, this unique museum is filled with insightful displays about the history of the Akha people.


Walk through the village, seeing traditional bamboo houses constructed by hand. Meet with local artisans and help them create handmade crafts. Then step into the kitchen for a cooking class. Prepare and cook typical Akha dishes using fresh ingredients and traditional techniques passed down from generation to generation. Sit down and enjoy this freshly prepared meal, exchanging stories with the host while dining.

Following lunch set off on a short trek into the forest. Discover the beautiful natural landscapes that provide sustenance for the residents of Hloyo. Visit local farms and see how the farmers rely on the land’s resources for their livelihood.
