Sila Petch Homestay


Sila Petch Homestay


Doi Luang Phuka stands tall against the horizon, looming over the endless rice fields in the valley here in Northern Thailand. With no pollution from the city, the stars shine bright in the evening, which is the perfect time to soak up the tranquil vibes at Sila Petch community homestay. This tiny village hidden among the peaks of the Luang Prabang mountain range has so many stories to tell. Full of green rice fields, the locals here live a simple agricultural lifestyle while upholding their unique culture. You’ll get to travel from Phuka Shrine along the river that provides for people living in more than ten nearby villages. Taste a traditional set meal cooked with locally-sourced ingredients (noticing the intense flavor of chili paste), take a tour of the vegetable plantations, and have fun making Ban Don Chai roasted glutinous rice, which is cooked in bamboo joints. For a rest bite from the sun, hide under the shade at Silapetch waterfall and get to know about the simple countryside lifestyle among the mountain mist.
