Krahun Rice Harvesting
This is Part 3 of Krahun’s exclusive DPRK Rice Farming Service Series
Krahun welcomes guests to the final part of its new and exclusive Rice Farming Service Series: harvesting rice! After planting rice in the spring and cultivating the rice throughout the summer, North Koreans across the country will finally harvest the fruits of their hard work and you can help! North Koreans will collect rice crops, cutting, stacking and handling them, using harvesting techniques to maximize grain yield. Guests will be taught and led by locals in this important work, and have a chance to play an active, direct role in harvesting arguably North Korea’s most important crop. This unprecedented opportunity is the result of close cooperation with the local DPRK tourism agency to create innovative projects and opportunities for guests. Come be a part of this special, unique opportunity!
Along with volunteering, guests will also tour the Rason region, enjoying the sights and sounds of the area and combining traditional tourism with hands-on service. Guests can practice English with students at the local foreign language middle school, have a chance to explore the local scenery, including beaches, parks, and mountains, go shopping at the open-air market among a sea of locals, and more – guests will be able to experience a slice of real DPRK life.
