Set out on an adventurous jungle trekking expedition through dense think forests to visit remote villages and learn about their way of life!
Day 1 - Khmu & Hmong Village of Nong Khuay/Tom Douk Cave
Before the journey to the countryside begins, you will meet your guide for a briefing on the tour. Enjoy a 35-minute ride through the countryside to our trekking starting point. Once we arrive at the Ban Phonexay, we will begin our trekking to the Khmu and Hmong Village of Nong Khuay. It will take approximately 4 hours to reach our destination. The trek will take you deep into thick jungles, through flowing streams, under bamboo forests and up the steep hills that offer you scintillating views of Laos.
You will have a picnic lunch to recharge your energy on your way to the village. After the picnic, we continue our journey through the forests. Upon reaching Nong Khuay, your tour guide will show you to your Eco Bungalow or introduce you to your host family for the night. If the time allows, we will trek about 30 minutes to the dark Tom Douk Cave. Your guide will tell you more about this interesting hidden cavern as you explore its dark terrain.
After the cave exploration, you will head back to the village and settle into your accommodation of the night. You can explore the village to know more about your hosts and also learn a few words of their language. The local villagers are very warm and friendly. You could even learn how to cook traditional cuisine or share some pictures on your trip with them. Enjoy your delicious dinner in the village and have the time for yourself at night.
Day 2 - Jungle Trekking/ Hmong Village of Long Lao Mai/Nong Khuay
Wake up to a calm and peaceful environment of village among the forests and have breakfast with your hosts in the morning. The village name Nong Khuay translates to “buffalo lake’ where you are able to hike to this famous lake afterwards. You will head out on the trail again to the Hmong Village of Long Lao Mai. It will be a hike of around 4 hours. There will be stops along the way for lunch and also time to admire the beauty of Laos’ natural scenery in your surroundings.
Once you reach Long Lao Mai, your guide will show you the Eco Bungalow which will be your accommodation for the night. Then tour around the village to meet your neighbours who are very friendly people. You can get to see some villagers selling beautiful handmade bracelets and other handicrafts to earn extra income that supports their daily lives. The handicrafts could make unique and meaningful souvenirs for your family or friends.
You may enjoy your luscious dinner outside under the stars or even share a meal with villages in their home. After a warm Hmong meal, you can rest in your Eco Bungalow after trekking for the last few days.
Day 3 - Jungle Trekking/ Kuang Si Waterfall/ Asiatic Bear Sanctuary
After having a hearty breakfast in the next morning, prepare yourself for another 3 hours or so trekking through the lush jungle to one of Luang Prabang’s favourite destination, the Kuang Si Waterfall. Take a lunch in the jungle on the way to the waterfalls. The Kuang Si Waterfall is the biggest waterfall in the Luang Prabang area. It has three tiers leading to a 50-metre drop into spectacular azure pools before flowing downstream. Its turquoise blue swimming holes make it even more mesmerizing. These swimming holes also make it perfect for swimming or having a dip into the water. On top of the waterfall, you can see the pools cascading as it flows downstream making it a sight to behold. There is also an Asiatic Bear Sanctuary in the area where you will be able to see the moon bears living there after being rescued from poachers. As the centre depends on donations and sponsorship, you can help them by buying a T-shirt or adopting a bear. After an exhilarating afternoon at the waterfall, you will be picked up for your return transfer to Luang Prabang to end your exciting tour these 3 days.
