The ethnic hill tribes in Laos used to be hunter-gatherers and the crossbow is an integral weapon in their culture as the main tool used for hunting. Crafted from the strongest bamboo and wood, these crossbows are capable of shooting further than your eyes can see in the jungle with your accuracy the only impediment to scoring a hit. Armed with self-crafted bamboo arrows, the hunters able to shoot with remarkable accuracy and feed their tribes.

Now you can join our veteran crossbow-maker in crafting your own personal crossbow! Made from 1 single block of wood and 1 piece of smoked bamboo then strung together by thick twine, your crossbow can be disassembled for easy transportation back home. Make sure you pay attention to how it is assembled though so you can do it on your own back home! Besides making your crossbow, spend a nice afternoon challenging Chaisong to an archery duel and see if you can win! Otherwise, a bag of fruits as tribute to the master would be a nice gift ;)

Please kindly note: Bring your own bottled water
