Luangnamtha – Ban Thasae – The Hunter Camp (Kmu tribe)We start around 8:30am at the hiker office, your guide will brief you about the hike and the trails. You will start with moderate walking, before heading deeply into the primary forest. Your guide will point out plants used for medicine and some wildlife spotting. You will help your guide prepare the jungle picnic meal before going hiking further to the campsite. Here you are going to set up simple beds in a bamboo hut for the overnight stay. For the rest of the day, you could either relax after the long hike or you could help your guide and learn how to cook local style. Enjoy eating dinner near the campfire exchanging stories with the local guides. Enjoy the tranquil night and sleep listening to the jungle sounds around you.
Ban NalanNeua – Ban Namlue – LuangnamthaThe Sunrises late in the jungle so feel free to wake up late. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while your guides prepare the breakfast. We depart from the campsite around 9:30 am, it takes a couple of hours to reach the Khmu village in the middle of the jungle, located on the Namha river bank. Khmu people are the largest number of ethnic groups in Northern Laos. We walk around the village to see and greet the locals. Next we head to the Lantan village, the people derive from south of China a few hundred years ago. You will see the locals wearing typical clothes. Then you will head into the forest again, trek for a few hours to reach the hilltop where you will witness the beautiful views. We have lunch on the hilltop before walking to the last village at the bottom of mountain, another lantan village where our transit car is waiting on the main road. We take a rest before we walk 10minutes to the car and transfer back to the town arriving back around 17:00.
