About this trip

Begin this tour with a scenic 1.5 hour drive through rugged countryside past numerous villages along the Nam Xuang river. We’ll cross the Nam Xuang river by small boat and begin our trek from the river’s banks. The trekking is 4-5 hours easy to intermediate through dense jungle and across numerous streams during the wet season. There are both Hmong and Khmu villages to visit and overnight at. Your 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 minivan to conclude this incredible immersion tour. We’ll arrive back in Luang Prabang by about 4:30 p.m.


 

Itinerary


8:30 a.m. meeting, introduction to group and guides, deposit your luggage in our care while on the tour, and briefing on tour before departure. Begin our drive of about 1.5 hours north of the city, half along a paved road and then along an unpaved road paralleling the beautiful Nam Xuang River. We’ll pass countless villages through rugged mountains on our drive as you leave everything resembling a city far behind you. We’ll cross the Nam Xuang river by small boat and begin our trekking through dense old-growth jungle. The first day of the tour is largely shaded as we make our way to our homestay villages.


On this tour we alternatively visit and homestay at two villages, one Khmu and the other Hmong to reduce the impact on either one in particular. We will take a thorough tour of one and then homestay at the other so that you can explore both ethnic groups in these remote villages. Our guides will cook for you, help translate if you would like to talk with anyone in the village, and will inform you about any aspect of local life.

On the second morning we’ll wake for breakfast, bid our new friends well, and begin trekking about 5 hours through more open terrain so that we can take in more countryside. Parts of this trail are down a medium grade. We’ll arrive at a the Nam Pa River where we can take a refreshing swim before boarding our truck for a 1 hour return trip to Luang Prabang by about 4:30 p.m. thus concluding this memorable remote tour.

独学で日本語を習得したトゥーンさんの説明はわかりやすかったです。ラオスのお参りの仕方や生活スタイルの説明も興味深いものでした。またルアンパバーンに行く時はガイドをお願いしたいと思います。
By WADA K for Private Half Day City Tour (with Japanese Speaking Guide) on 21 Nov, 2019
We had an exceptional and wonderful experience, that was planned and organized by Manifa Travel, according our requests. The elephant camp was truly moving, as the elephants are free to roam around and receive a lot of food and affection. Our interaction with the elephants was great especially for our children. Also, the accommodation in the camp (private bungalows with a great river view) and the food (Yami!) were beyond our expectations. Our other activities were exiting and well organized, including the boat on the Mekong river, the bicycle ride, the kayaking and the track in the fields. Our guide (Mr. Wong) was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and was fluent in English. We highly recommend Manifa Travel and we are thankful for this great experience.
