Nam Ou Adventure

This exciting tour takes you to discover the beautiful Nam Ou River, a quieter tributary of the Mekong. Perfect for those who want to explore the countryside a bit further afield from Luang Prabang but who have limited time.

Depart Luang Prabang by road and travel north towards the village of Ban Don Ngurn, about an hour and a half away. Here you will board a private boat for a cruise down the beautiful Nam Ou River, passing by stunning limestone karst scenery. Pause for a delicious picnic lunch with a spectacular view, perched on the banks of the Nam Ou. In the afternoon you will continue your cruise, stopping at Ban Vanglae, a Lu tribe village where the villagers practise traditional weaving and dyeing. Continue by boat and soon you will merge with the mighty Mekong River. Make a final stop en route back to Luang Prabang to visit the sacred Pak Ou Caves crammed with thousands of Buddha images and afterwards continue your cruise down to Luang Prabang, arriving back in the late afternoon.
