Itinerary

Day 1
TREKKING THE LONGHUT TRAIL AND KHMU HOMESTAY (L, D)

Longhut trail is one of the most spectacular trails in the area, situated in the foothills of steep jungle-covered mountain on one side and a spectacular view over Luang Prabang and the Mekong River on the other side.


This tour begins with a 30-minute drive to our Tiger Trail Adventure camp on the banks of the Nam Khan River to cross by boat and begin ascent into the mountains. The trail is an invigorating and sometimes technical hike taking you through canyons to remote villages and small lakes. The full day hike spans 13 Km, normally taking 6 hrs with breaks included. Under wet conditions, the hiking can be 7-8 hours and is rated at medium to difficult, and always well worth the challenging hike.


You’ll arrive at the Khmu village late evening for an authentic cultural homestay and a well-earned meal prepared by your guide. Enjoy exploring the village with your guide, have a drink with the locals if you like, and otherwise enjoy this incredible night deep in the mountains living for a night as the mountain tribes have for ages before.
