Day 1


Luang Namtha – Khmu Tribe Village – Waterfalls Camp

After a half an hour transfer to the south direction, we will stop at Chaluensouk village, where our trek starts. There you will meet our village guide who will assist us during the whole journey, helping us to carry some food for later. During the first part of the trek we will walk up to the top of the mountain. Then along the ridge line of a mountain range, until we head down through a wonderful dense green forest. Along the way one of our guides will serve you lunch. You will keep on walking until the bottom where you will put your bag down in our sanctuary camp in a great location surrounded by a magnificent old-growth forest. After taking a small break we will encourage you to walk along a stream, take a bath in a several cascades waterfall under the big old trees. Later you will learn from your guide how to cook as locals do using bamboo and how to make a campfire. The rest of the evening you can spend exchanging conversations by the bonfire or go to spot some wildlife during the night.

Day 2


Campsite – Mountain Ridge – Mountain Rice Field Views – Ban Namlue (Lantan Tribe)

We will start the day with a nice cup of tea or coffee, while admiring the wild beauty and incredible sounds of nature around the campsite. Then you will have a breakfast, pack up your stuff, and we will make sure that you have enough water for another full day walk. This day we will start up by hiking up the second mountain for one and a half hours, and then have a gentler walk than the day before, again on a mountain ridge. You will have an opportunity so see different landscapes including bamboo and chestnut forests, some mountain upland view fields, as well as a banana forest, before we descent down to the last minority village of Lantan tribe. There you will see local people making bamboo paper and dying indigo cotton for their family. You will have some time to walk around the village for a while before we walk to the main road to get a transport to head back to town. We will arrive in Luang Namtha between 4pm – 5pm.
