Day 1: Trekking into the Lao countryside, easy hike
After we meet at the meeting point (or at hotel on private tours) you proceed on into the Lao countryside, just a short drive out of Luang Prabang. We are starting this tour near a local village in the middle of the Lao lush nature, a huge mountain chain right in front of you. You traverse the Nam Khan via water taxi to begin the march up to a mid-mountain Theung village (Khamu).
Careful not to disrupt the serenity of this isolated area, we can observe the locals as they carry out their daily tasks. You get the chance to ask questions and wander around in the small village. Your guide will be happy to translate your questions. Waving our good-byes, we enter a different world of a grander scale dominated by some jungle, soaring limestone rock faces, and flourishing ferns.  
Edging forward along a steep, narrow, rocky track, we ascend to our final destination, sharing the trail with passing villagers on their days pilgrimage to market. After a short but steep walk we finally arrive at the Lao Sung village (Hmong), an isolated and quaint village high in the mountains overrun by roaming livestock.
Luang Prabang adventure tour, Trek and ElephantWelcomed by the shy yet curious kids, we enjoy lunch in a local, humble home to share in a unique encounter. Listen to the stories, play with the curious children or ask your questions about their way of life up here, Overnight in village.
