After the meal we will start hiking in a deep forest, with the possibilities to spot wildlife. We will walk up the hill and then along the ridge-line. Today’s hiking trail weaves through even more beautiful forest that is cool and shady. We will walk until we find the best location beside another stream to set up our campsite.

Stream Campsite 2 – Remote Village Visit – Luang Namtha

After breakfast we will walk for a couple of hours in the forest until we reach a valley with the villagers and their farmland. Then we will trek further along the rice fields till we arrive at the river Namha, which we must cross over to get to the village. We will take a small break there and walk around the village before we start heading up the mountain until we reach the top. There you will witness an incredible view of the other side of the mountain range. From the big mountain we will descend down to Ban Chaleunsouk which is Khmu village located nearby the main road. This is where we end our wild explorer trekking and where our minivan will be waiting to take us back to town.

I did this trek at the end of October 2018 and I can assure you they give you what they promised! Real adventure, back to nature, some of the treks are really challenging and demanding but it was so amazing! So if you really like adventure and are not scared of the wildlife of the jungle this trek is a very good option!s
