Itinerary in Details:
Day 1: Luang Prabang - Kha Mu Village (L, D)
Leave Luang Prabang in the morning, preferably early around 8:00AM. and head out north along the Mekong river road. You drive about 60km out of town to find yourself in remote Lao for your three day trekking adventure… After arriving at the beautiful Nam Ou river, you start your trekking activity to the first stop, a Khamu village (Pha Phong) After 2 hrs. more on tiny villagers trails you arrive in Houay Wai, a small Hmong community in the mountains whose families will be your hosts for the night. Total walking about 4 hrs. Lunch break with your guide. The evening we spend together with the family and the children of the village who will come to see the foreign long-nose “falangs”. Take your time to relax and to ask questions or help your guide as he prepares a nice trekking-dinner. You have time to take a bath in the small fresh water well. Overnight in villagers home.
Day 2: Khamu Area Trekking (B, L, D)
The next day you hike for a longer stretch after an early breakfast to have another night and enough time in the Hmong village. Again it will be warm and curious welcome to you…and you will be tired. You walk over small hills and up and down to the higher areas where the Hmong normally live. The village is laid back but very poor, so you may bring some things for the school, such as books and pens. Ask the locals and your guide to learn more about the believes and animist religion or just listen to the traditional Hmong chanting… Total walking about 5-6 hrs.
Day 3: Khamu Village - Songthaews - Luang Prabang (B, L, D)
On the last day of this trekking adventure your trails guide you down back to road connected areas. Other village visits are included and the re-transportation to Luang Prabang will take about 2 hrs. in one of the local Songthaews. Total walking time about 3-4 hrs. Until just a few people have enjoyed and recommended this trek again and again, now it is open to public. Follow our Hmong guides and take home a bit more than just nice memories and pictures.
