Karen Hill Tribe Silver Making Village
by: Melissa

Hi there,
There is a Karen Hill Tribe village that specialises in making hill tribe silver it is called ‘Li’ near Lampang.

There is a whole village under the OTOP (One Tambon One Product) scheme, its quite a remarkable village as this is where a lot of the wholesale silver shops in Chiang Mai source their stuff from.

So, the entire village is busy always making silver. Some say that you know you’ve reached the village as you can hear the ‘tapping’ of the silver!.

If you would like to visit this village we can organise the tour for you at Thailand Hilltribe Holidays please email me at mja1906@hotmail.com for further details & a quote.

Regards
Melissa
