Lao warriors were once the fiercest armies in the region, able to trek and fight effectively in mountainous terrain and atop fearsome elephants. Carrying bamboo tubes full of sticky rice, they were able to move quickly and easily through the tropical jungles. Sticky rice also provided much more energy compared to normal rice, allowing them to carry less for more energy.
These warriors made their own knives and other weapons such as crossbows to fight in battles, and they also had to procure their own food, so every one of them were able to hunt, forage, track animals and devise traps to catch animals.
In this comprehensive Lao warrior experience you'l be able to feel and understand what being a Lao warrior is like! You'll be crafting your own knives, practicing shooting with a crossbow, crafting a crossbow for yourself and then learning how to build 3 bird traps to catch birds using just bamboo.
