2 day Payong Trail: Lao, Hmong, Khamu community explorer hike
Exploring paddy fields, Lao culture, villages and mountain trails in north Laos
After we meet at our office we head out of town with a small car to the starting point for this 2 day adventure trekking. We follow paths following little streams and sneaking between high rising mountains. Colorful rice fields and gardens guide our way through this area. The first stretch of this trekking tour will lead us to a perfectly preserved Lao style village still living in traditional style. You will see animals, farmland and traditional houses along the way. After an introduction to the local traditions, the Lao Lum style of weaving and other activities you enjoy the surrounding while having lunch in a villagers house.
The next part of the hike will follow a small road and soon will enter thick jungle… A trail which was used for trading in the last decades is our guide…We follow the landscape on this smooth walk until we arrive in the next village where highland people, Hmong and Khamu are sharing their life. Have a warm welcome in the house of the chief and learn more about their unique tradition and history. A walk around the village can tell you many stories and shows you the differenced between both ethnic groups which live here.
We than prepare ourselves for an overnight stay in this remote village and enjoy the local “cuisine” as well as an informative walk around the village and their surroundings. Take your time to explore the place by yourself and play with the kids…
After our night in the small separated home stay, which we set up for our visitors, we enjoy our breakfast before we walk down to the Nam Ou river.
