Day 1

Luang Namtha – Nalan Neua – Chaleunsouk Village

After a half an hour transfer south, you will be dropped off at Chaleunsouk village where we start the trek. There you will meet our village guide who will assist us in the jungle. During the first part of the hike we will walk up to the top of the mountain, then along the ridge line of the mountain range to take in some breathtaking views, until we descend through the wondrous dense forest. Lunch will be served along the way. We then walk parallel with a stream towards the Nalan Neua village nestled on the Namha riverbank. Accompanied by your local guide, you will spend time walking around the village, interacting with the locals and learning about local culture before beginning our final mountain hike to the remote village where we will spend the night, arriving just before dark. The village’s chief will organise a host family for us to stay with, where you can participate in cooking dinner with your local homestay family and share meal with them.

The day begins with an hour drive from the village, receiving brief instructions of double kayaking and paddling safety on the way.

Witness local wildlife around you and fishermen go about their daily work.
