tour details

Enjoy a hike through the unforgettable, scenic Nong Khiaw and spend time with local Hmong villages.

In the early morning, take a 2-hour transfer from the hotel in Luang Prabang to Nong Khiaw. After reaching your final destination, hop in a local tuk tuk and start your trekking expedition. This trip will lead you through the forest and along rice paddies to several beautiful viewpoints looking over the Nong Khiaw landscapes.
During the trek, a picnic lunch will be provided. In the afternoon, trek to the Hmong village of Ban Patam where local families will be your hosts for the night. Spend the evening in the mountains with one of the village’s families.
Relax and ask questions or help your guide as he prepares a nice outdoor dinner.

Spend the night in the villagers’ house.
After breakfast, discover the surrounding area and visit a local waterfall. Trek from Patam Village, pass lush jungle and stunning views and have lunch before exploring life in another Hmong village. Walk up and down over small hills to the Ban Payong Village area where the Hmong normally live and arrive to the village in the late afternoon. Spend time leisurely exploring and learning about the living style of this hilltribe.

Enjoy dinner at the village house and spend the night there.
After a night in a small traditional-style homestay, enjoy breakfast and then take a walk down to the Nam Ou River. Follow a downhill trail surrounded by forest and bamboo, cross the Nam Ou River and then hike to a refreshing waterfall where visitors can take bathe in the water or go swimming. Along the way, enjoy a Lao-style lunch and then head back to Nong Khiaw by boat and enjoy the surrounding scenery.
