Trekking in Laos

Tour Code: TREK10
The highlights of this trip include a boat trip on Nam Ou River and camping on the riverbank. The trek will lead through minority ethnic villages of H’mong & Khmu people.

The mountain chain of Dien Bien Phu and Laos to the west creates a challenge for experienced trekkers.

Here, river navigation prevails as few roads penetrate the Laotian jungle.
