Trekking Among the Towering Crags of Nong Khiaw
Travelers who have visited Nong Khiaw often rave about the beauty of this peaceful little town, nestled against the banks of the Nam Ou River, with superb scenery of dramatic limestone mountains.
Nong Khiaw is also known for being the starting point of several nature-based excursions. Whether it’s trekking, kayaking or biking, there is a bit of everything for everyone.
Khiri Travel Laos runs several thrilling nature programs here. Among them is an exhilarating two-day experience combining trekking and cultural immersion.
Starting with a trek through the region’s stunning valleys; stroll through rolling hills, before arriving at a remote ethnic Hmong village, comprising only a few traditional bamboo huts.
After enjoying a welcome lunch in the village and learning about life as an ethnic Hmong, journey to a secret waterfall and take an exhilarating dip in the pool at the base of the falls. Refreshed and invigorated, head to a viewpoint to watch the sunset over the valley.
Back in the village, dinner is prepared by the local villagers and guests are welcome to take part and learn some of the Hmong cooking techniques. Eating is a communal affair and an opportunity to get to know some of your friendly, grinning hosts.
Spend the night in one of the comfortable village dwellings and the next day rise at dawn for breakfast before bidding the villagers farewell and setting off on the second leg of the trek through dense jungle towards the ethnic Khmu village of Ban Phayong.
The tour finishes with a picturesque cruise back down the river to Nong Khiaw, enjoying the beautiful scenery, while the sun sets behind the mountains.
