Day 1: To Nong Khiau, Mountain View hike
In the morning we head out north to Nong Khiau, our newly surveyed adventure destination 3 hrs. north of Luang Prabang. Great landscapes await you along the way near the Nam Ou river. After arrival we have lunch and start out for a small walk on the hilltop of a mountain. Its called the mountain view trail …which goes steep up on a hillside exploring mountain forests and lime stone formations. The total trip includes about 3-4 hours walking, go slow…it is steep up hill. On top you can watch as far as 20 km to the surrounding landscape…which is truly amazing! Night preferably in Riverside Bungalows (B-L)(Alternatively you can enjoy the area while taking a short walk to the nearby Phatok Cave )
Day 2: The newly discovered 100 waterfalls trek
Starting the day with a peaceful boat ride on the Nam Ou you will be able to explore a small Lao village along the river side before heading into the waterfalls. Learn about their way of life along this river! Walking through small streams and rice paddies you reach the 100 waterfalls which were first explored in October 2008!! The next few hours you will see only water and jungle and hear the sound of clear waterfall cascades…small pools all around you inviting for a refreshing splash. A local style lunch is served on the falls. Surprisingly the rocks and stones along the falls are not slippery at all, though you need to watch your step while looking into the jungle… Arriving on top you have a great view over the landscape and nature of the region! Rated to be the best value adventure hike in Luang Prabang province! (B-L)
Day 3: Day visit to Muang Ngoi and visit to the river scenery along the Nam Ou
Starting with your boat from Nong Khiau we head out passing the river sceneries north of Muang Ngoi. An amazing and truly fantastic landscape is waiting for you today… Along the way we can visit a village or explore a cave. The afternoon we have time to explore the little village of Muang Ngoi …which is a riverside place with a small road but NO cars or motorbikes… A peaceful place, ideal to relax and enjoy the lifestyle of North Laos. We stay overnight in small basic bungalows. (B-L)
Day 4: From the upper Nam Ou via Nong Khiau to Luang Prabang
After breakfast we take a small boat and cruise down to Nong Khiau. If needed we will have a short stop over here before we start our expedition cruise on the Nam Ou all the way down to Luang Prabang…an experience for itself. Bring a book and the mood to enjoy villages and landscapes passing by like in a film. On the way we have a stopover to visit the famous Buddha caves of Pak Ou.
