Trek through the lush jungle of Luang Prabang and explore Khmu and Hmong ethnic villages off the beaten track. This genuine cultural immersion experience is one you'd remember for a lifetime.
On the first day, we will start with a scenic 2 hour drive through the idyllic countryside. We will cross the Nam Xuang river by small boat and begin our trek from the riverbank. The trekking is 4-5 hours easy to intermediate through dense jungle and across numerous streams during the wet season.
Upon reaching the Hmong and Khmu villages, our guides will introduce you to the villages, prepare dinner, and guide you through an unforgettable experience with your host village. Unlike the Lao Loum people predominantly residing in the city who are Buddhist, the Hmong and Khmu ethnic groups are animist with widely differing beliefs that make Laos the ethnically rich country it is. Ask to join any activity you see. Use your time and guide well to explore these remarkable people’s lives.
On our second morning we’ll wake to enjoy breakfast prepared by your guide, say your farewells, and set off again trekking for about 5 hours to the second of two rivers you’ll see on this tour. Feel free to jump in for a swim to cool off before you depart by truck to conclude this incredible immersion tour. We’ll arrive back in Luang Prabang by about 4:30 p.m.
