We will stop off at some villages of the Akha ethnic minority, a very well known the hill-tribe living in Northern Laos. This is an opportunity to observe and learn about the Akha life or to take a small walk into the forest. Next, we stop at the Kmu village, the largest group of a minority in Northern Laos. They are considered to be the first group of people who established the kingdom in Laos. Soon we arrive at Muangsing, check-in and have some lunch.
