Day 1

Arrival in Nong Khiaw

The rural town of Nong Khiaw is easily reached from Luang Prabang and Luang Namtha, making it the perfect place to stop for a few days and break up the journey. In Nong Khiaw, you’ll stay in a cosy riverside eco-lodge, sleeping in a spacious bungalow built using natural materials, with a balcony overlooking the river. After nightfall, you can sit outside under the stars, soak up the serenity and sip a Beer Lao.

Back to the boat for a spot of lunch before heading on foot through paddy fields, exploring caves as you go. Your trip will finish with a cruise back to Nong Khaiw as the sun sets behind the hills.

“Laos is a real winner for anyone looking for a mix of culture, nature and tasty cuisine. Visiting the falls outside Luang Prabang is my favourite excursion - it’s a ‘must do’ experience and my customers highly recommend it too!”
