Local tour to Sembalun village will take only 4 hours of your time, and allows you to experience the village with a local perspective. We will explore Sembalun on foot, visiting to paddy fields, garlic plantations, local gardens and fields filled with a myriad of vegetables, fruit, and red and white rices. We will chat with farmers, giving you an opportunity to ask questions and maybe even practice your Indonesian skills.
We will then continue to the ancient village of Desa Beleq – the original village of Sembalun. There you can examine the architecture of our ancestors and listen to local myths and tales. If you are lucky you might even hear the local Gamelan group playing! After Desa Beleq we will take a beautiful, cool walk through the neighboring bamboo garden to a local house where we will watch traditional hand weaving. There, our Mothers will happily teach you traditional weaving techniques.
But we must be patient – they will explain the very complicated equipment until you can make one `tone` or two (it is sounds like music tones when the lady hits the tools).
After experiencing the weaving process, you are welcome to purchase a sarong or small scarf as a gift for your family and friends back home. We will then return to base where you can relax from a very adventurous day.
