Itinerary

Day 1

Luang Namtha – Khmu Tribe Village – Waterfalls Camp

You will be picked up in Luang Namtha in the morning and transported south to the Chaluensouk village. It is here where you will meet the village guide and the trek will begin. The first part of the trek involves hiking up to the top of a mountain. From there, you will continue along the ridgeline before dropping down to explore a dense green forest. 

Lunch will be prepared by your guides en route. You will continue to follow the route down until you reach the sanctuary camp which is located in one of the oldest and most beautiful parts of the forest. There will be a small break before you will walk along a stream. There will also be the option to enjoy the waterfall under the old trees by taking a dip. 

During the evening meal, you will be taught how to cook using local bamboo techniques and also shown how to make a campfire. The rest of the night is yours to spend as you like but wildlife spotting comes highly recommended!

Day 2

Camp – Mountain Ridge – Mountain Rice Field Views – Ban Namlue – Luang Namtha

The day will begin with a filling breakfast as well as a cup of tea or coffee to wake you up! After breakfast, you will need to pack up your belongings and get ready for another full day of trekking. 

First, you will hike up a second mountain for around one and a half hours before arriving at the mountain ridge. This walk will be more gentle than the previous day but also offers some beautiful views. There will be the opportunity to see various landscapes including chestnut, banana and bamboo forests as well as some incredible mountain views. 

Eventually, you will begin to descend down the mountain to the last minority village of the Lantan tribe. Here you will meet the local people and be able to observe them making bamboo paper and dyeing cotton. 

There will be some free time to explore the village before you walk to the main road to catch the transport to head back to town. You will likely be arriving back in Luang Namtha between around 4 pm and 5 pm.

Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region! 

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 48 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.
