Akha village – Namgaen – Phieng Ngam – Luangnamtha

Wake up as the villagers go to work in the rice field, you can either enjoy your morning coffee and walk around the peaceful village, seeing the people implementing their routine or help with cooking breakfast. You could also walk a little into the forest near the village to see the insects etc. We share a lovely breakfast with the family before saying good bye to the family and thank you.
