Day 1 – Luang Prabang Cycling Trip With Trekking And Homestay: Biking into the North
We start north of Luang Prabang and along the Mekong as well as the Nam Ou river with its amazing landscape. On our first day we can explore some villages along the way as well as some great sceneries. After a 60 km ride out north we arrive in our little Guest house no the bank of the Nam Ou river. Wander around the roadside village and see how people live in the countryside. Overnight in Ban Hat Pang. (about 70 km)
Day 2 – Luang Prabang Cycling Trip With Trekking And Homestay: Biking day and river journey
The second day will bring us further north into the limestone formations around Nong Khiau, where we will arrive in the late afternoon. See the kids in the river and have a look around the small Laotian town. It is still a very small and untouched place.
A small town on the banks of the Nam Ou River, Nong Kiaow (also spelt Nong Khiaw) boasts a gorgeous backdrop of imposing limestone mountains, picturesque river views and genuine local colour. Sometimes referred to as Muang Ngoi Mai, it is often confused with Muang Ngoi, a smaller town an hour’s boat ride upriver. Both towns are very popular with backpackers, and new riverside bungalows, tourist-friendly restaurants and travel agencies keep being added to accommodate them.
Night in Guest house in Nong Khiau. (About 80 km cycling)
Day 3 – Luang Prabang Cycling Trip With Trekking And Homestay : Trekking in remote villages
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. Dinner and overnight at villagers’ homes.
Day 4 – Luang Prabang Cycling Trip With Trekking And Homestay: Trekking to the people
Breakfast at villagers’ homes. After that we continue to trek downhill through beautiful natural surroundings to visit Ban Hadsapheai (about 4 – 5 hours), a small village of Khmu ethnic group which is on the bank of Nam Ou river. 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.
Day 5 – Luang Prabang Cycling Trip With Trekking And Homestay : Back into civilization
After our breakfast we make an early start down stream towards our starting point. We follow the river in a small local motor boat that will bring us to Luang Prabang within 7 – 8 hrs. If you wish to arrive earlier we have to choose a road transfer which is less exciting but at least 4 hrs of saved time. Please ask for further travel arrangements from Luang Prabang.
