Experience residing at the eco-friendly bungalow during your journey to two rural villages that are located within the mountainous region of northern Laos!
Day 1 - Trekking / Eco-Bungalow Homestay
Commence your journey by meeting with your friendly guide and setting out on a ride through the rural parts of northern Laos. Arrive at the starting point of your trek at Ban Phonexay and begin your exciting trek along the trails, in the midst of stunning nature. Stumble upon beautiful sights of the countryside, from tall verdant trees to streams that flow nonchalantly on the way. Stroll under bamboo forests that are along the trail and also trudge along the steep hills, which is the perfect spot to admire landscapes of Laos. Along the way, you will take a break that will be served in a picnic-lunch style for you to replenish your energy before continuing your adventure.
You will head to the Khmu and Hmong village called Nong Khuay, where you will reside for the night at the eco-friendly bungalows. If time allows, you will trek along to the dark Tom Douk cave, where you will be able to explore within its dark interior. Be led by your guide as you enter the depths of the cave and discover the stunning stalagmites and stalactites that jut out of the walls. Head back to the serene village and settle into the eco-friendly bungalow. Explore the serene village that is packed with friendly villagers, where you will be able to learn about the lifestyle and culture. Learn the process of cooking traditional meals from the villagers or pick up a couple of words of their language. After an exhausting day, you will enjoy a delectable dinner before heading to hitting the hay.
Day 2 - Eco-Bungalow Stay
Awake to the delicious breakfast with your hosts before setting out for your adventure for the day. Take the trails again that will take you to the famous lake called Buffalo Lake. Bask in the stunning beauty of the Buffalo Lake before venturing through the beaten trail that will take you to the serene Hmong village of Long Lao Mai. Take a break along the way to indulge in a delicious lunch to replenish your energy during the trek. Upon arrival to Long Lao Mai, you will be led by your guide to the eco-friendly bungalow that you will be residing in for the night. Explore the serene village and interact with your friendly villagers along the way. Stumble upon stalls where the villagers are selling beautifully-crafted bracelets and other handicrafts for you to splurge to heart’s desires, which also supports their livelihood. You will indulge in a delicious dinner that is served under the unobstructed night sky. After dinner, you will relax at the home stay and sleep for the rest of the night.
Day 3 - Village Life
Take the opportunity to experience the simple village life by spending some time with the friendly villagers, after you consume a delicious breakfast. Engage in the daily tasks of the villagers by helping them either indoors or outdoors. Learn the art of cooking Lao cuisine from the local villagers or take to the fields and help the villagers in their farming activities. Take the time to gain some insight on the process of weaving from the local skilled artisans, who are experts in the craft that they learned with the knowledge that has been passed down.
