With a little local boat we head out to discover the Nam Ou and the surrounding villages. We start to our two day trekking. After a one hour boat transfer we begin to trek uphill, which is about 1200 m above the sea level, to Ban Kioukhan (about 4-5 hours), a Village of Khmu ethnic group. On the way, stop to visit Tham Kaang, the former sheltering cave for local villagers during the last Indochina War (1960 – 1972) which has never damaged with beautiful surroundings. A long the way, it is particularly picturesque of mountain views. Picnic lunch. Arrive Kioukhan in the afternoon. Explore local people’s working and living conditions.

After lunch, continue to take a boat ride downstream to Muang Ngoi. Between Ban Hatsaphuai and Muang Ngoi, it is thought to be one of the most beautiful views on the Nam Ou river with rock cliffs and rock formation rising dramatically above rain forest. Lunch at local restaurant in Muang Ngoi. Afternoon for relaxing in the beautiful setting. Bungalow or Guesthouse in Muang Ngoi. (B-L)

After our breakfast we make an early start down stream on the Nam Ou river towards our starting point.
