Umden Village Tour
Umden is an ideal getaway nestled in the lush green forests with natural miracles in abundance. Enjoy a day trip with Travenjo to watch the different culture caressed by the native people in the village especially the Bhoi tribes. Embark on a trek through the tea gardens, strawberry fields, subtropical and bamboo forests for a revamping experience. Umden is famous for Eri silk production and weaving of traditional handlooms like ryndia, stoles in exquisite patterns etc.. The village takes pride in continuing the age-old tradition of producing silk following the unique method of not killing the silkworm during the process of extracting silk from the cocoons. We call this the ‘ahimsa’ tradition of sericulture. Here one can witness all the steps in the sericulture value chain- starting from the rearing of silkworms to spinning and reeling of silk to yarn production and dying and finally to weaving. You can even try your hand at weaving with a one-day course on weaving being offered for the tourists!!.
