Trek around Luang Nam Tha

In the rugged northwest, Luang Nam Tha boasts a stunning location and some great opportunities for those looking for a bit of adventure on their tour of Laos. 

A possible trekking route begins at the Black Tai village of Ban Namngean, which offers a panoramic view of Luang Nam Tha town, before heading up through mixed forest into the hills. Enjoy a local picnic, and continue to visit small Akha, Black Tai, and Lanten villages before returning to Luang Nam Tha town in the evening. Your guide will accompany you throughout, allowing you to interact with the local villagers as you go. 

In addition to walking and trekking tours, the Luang Nam Tha area is a great place for kayaking trips on the Nam Ha River, mountain biking along well carved trails, and homestays in remote Khmu and Lanten villages. A comfortable base for tours in the region is the Boat Landing Guest House, an Eco Lodge with an idyllic setting on the the banks of the Nam Tha River.
