Tour Description:

Adventure awaits at the Nam Khan River that flows through Luang Prabang and it is one of the biggest tributaries to the Mekong river. Your adventure begins with a 25 minutes ride to the Adventure Camp that is located a stone’s throw away from the Nam Khan River. Upon arrival, you will be given a short briefing regarding the kayaking basics and safety before going to the river. The state of the Nam Khan river largely varies depending on the season and weather.

During the high season, the water of the Nam Khan river flows ceaselessly with an abundance of water rushing through the waterway and feel the wind lightly touching your skin as you traverse along the river on a kayak. Admire the beautiful lush jungles that grow healthily and flourish on the fertile lands. Watch the simple lifestyles of the local Laos people as you pass through the local villages that live along the bank of the Nam Khan river. Catch the sights of the farmers as they maintain and cultivate their rice on the field. Lucky travellers may even see the elephants that reside at the elephant camp within the vicinity bathing in the river! The total distance of the river is 20 kilometers that are ranked easy to medium, which would take a total of 3-4 hours to complete before returning to the camp in a truck. The high season of the Nam Khan river is usually from August to January.

During the low season, the water rushing along the Nam Khan river is less swollen compared to the high season and thus the water recedes to reveal white sand beaches and riverbanks. You will have the opportunity to river jump between trees. Explore the resting site of Henri Mahout, who was a French explorer that died in 1861 when he contracted malaria on an expedition within the depth of the jungle and then was buried near the Nam Khan river. The total distance of the journey through the river is 11 kilometers and the journey will take 3 hours to complete which includes the occasional rapids that are along the river. You will make a stop to the Geng Noun, which is popular amongst the locals before you return to the camp in a truck. The low season of the Nam Khan river is usually from February to July.
