Amazing Laos 10 days

 Just more than one week, you can experience the best of what Laos can offer from the famous UNESCO Heritage Site of ancient Luang Prabang to the remote area of Kamu Lodge, the place where electricity is still in the future plan. The cruise upstream the Mekong River is the experience that no one wants to miss when visiting Laos (this is the most important trading route of the northern Laos in the past when travelling among the zigzagging mountain paths is something impossible). It is also the chance for you to experience the amazing resort of Muang La Resort and its surrounding area (the home of many ethnic groups), the place that you never want to say goodbye. The great nature of Nong Khiaw is also what makes your luggage more heavy with full of fun experience.

DAY 2:  LUANG PRABANG – CITY TOUR – KUANG SI WATERFALLS   

An optional early start gives you the fantastic opportunity to participate in the daily morning rituals of saffron-clad monks collecting offerings of Alms (ubiquitous sticky rice) from the faithful residents. This tradition is very unique in Laos, being the only Buddhist nation still preserving the procession. From there, we will take a short visit to the morning local market near the Royal Palace. At the market, you can find anything from rice, to fresh vegetables, to steamed fish, frogs, and anything else that might be the day’s catch, just set up on the ground, this is what the locals do every day. This is really the chance for you to get a real flavor of the local culture.

ABF, we visit Royal Palace Museum, which hosts a range of interesting artifacts.  Our next stop in the city is the magnificent Wat Xiengthong with its roofs sweeping low to the ground, which represents classical Laotian architecture. We will also take a look at the Traditional Art & Ethonology Center to learn about the many Lao ethnic groups. Laos is also known for its traditional crafts, and today you will visit local villages of Lao ethnic minority groups at Ban Ouay, a Hmong village, Ban Ou a Laoloum village and Ban Thapene, a Khmu village.  This then takes us to the beautiful Kuang Si Waterfall where you can cool off with a refreshing swim in the pools or walk along the forest trails.

Before returning to Luang Prabang, we stop to visit the Kuang Si Falls Butterfly Park, one of the must-visit spots, newly opened on January 2014.

The 400 years old legendary statue is said to have many supernatural powers, and is widely worshipped among the faithful local Buddhists. We stop in Muang La, famous for its natural hot springs for the night.  No activities are planned for the rest of the day so you can stroll around the village or just relax at the riverside retreat enjoying a massage or sometime in the hot springs. Overnight in Muang La

DAY 6:  MUANG LA – ETHNIK TREKKING        

Day by 4x4 to meet Ikhos villages and Hmong, two communities typical of Laos.

This community from  Yunnan and Tibet has remained extremely traditional. Lunch will be taken on a magnificent view.   We join in after the Hmong village of Ban Tauser (45 minutes walking). This ethnic group,  originating high steppes of Tibet, you will discover their habits, the important place that keep the animals (pigs, buffaloes…) in their lifestyle and care they provide. The path leading to the village completely isolated offers many viewpoints impressive. A few minutes from the village is a viewpoint with a 360 degree panorama on the region… unique.

Walking through small streams and rice paddies, you will arrive at the bottom of the 100 Waterfalls which were only first explored in October 2008! For the next few hours you will see only water and jungle and hear the constant sound of clear waterfall cascades. The pools around you are very inviting for a refreshing splash.

Your guide will lead you through the cascades and prepare a local style lunch that you can enjoy on the falls surrounded by amazingly green nature.

A small village trail on the top of the '100 Waterfalls' will lead us on our hike back down into the valley, offering wide views over the expansive Nam Ou valley.
