Luangnamtha – Ban Nalan Neua (Kmu tribe)Transfer by minivan to the beginning point of hike (half an hour drive). The first part of the hike is up the hill for an hour among the secondary forest. Soon we descend down to the stream and entering the primary forest, where you will see a lot of big old trees some of them are over a few hundred years. You will continue trekking up some down trails before stopping for a fantastic local lunch. After lunch we will hike for about an hour or two, until we reach the village by mid of afternoon. For the rest of day you can play with the local children, walk around the village or collect some wild vegetables with the local people for cooking dinner. This is an opportunity to interact with the local people in the village or to enjoy a cool swim in the clear water of the Namha River or even experience fishing with the locals. You will enjoy a delicious locally prepared dinner and then relax by the camp fire at night before go to bed.
Ban NalanNeua – Ban Namkoy – Ban Jaleunsouk – LuangnamthaWake up early, take a cold shower or a swim is not a bad idea, or walk through the villages and witness how the locals prepare for their working day. Relax, drink coffee/tea and enjoy a locally prepared breakfast. You will depart from the village around 9am local time, walking along the river bank for an hour to a nearby village Ban Nalan tai, a Kmu village. We continue on to another village of Ban Namkoy (Lantan tribe) the tribe which derives from a Chinese tribe and who still wear traditional clothes, make textile and do natural dying. In the dry season they make bamboo paper for recording stories. After spending awhile in the village we head onward through the forest and climb up a mountain. We walk along the ridge line enjoying the views before descending down to the Lantan village of Ban Namlue, located near the main road. From there we walk for some minutes to our transit car that will take us back into town.
