Bamboo detail.png

Bamboo is a resource obtained from chopping bamboo stalks found on the isles of Waiko, Tuai Leit, North-eastern Aminishi, and Uncharted Isles. Chopping the bamboo stalks requires level 90 Woodcutting and grants 202.5 Woodcutting experience each.

Bamboo may be obtained occasionally from pickpocketing Waiko islanders near the Waiko marketplace, and can occasionally be found lying on the ground while exploring Uncharted Isles.

Five bamboos may be fletched into a bundle of bamboo or tortle trap at level 96 Fletching; players can be assisted by others to bundle bamboo.

Five bamboos are also traded to the Tuai Leit gem trader in exchange for the Tuai Leit sparkle.

Bamboo can be sold to Zhuka (bamboo merchant) at the Bamboo Market 101 in Waiko, and to Alder (bamboo merchant) at the Big Bada Bamboo shop in Tuai Leit for a chime each. It is however suggested to bundle the bamboo before selling, due to the higher value of bundles of bamboo.
