    1. Day1 Arrival – Vientiane

      On arrival at Wattay Airport, you are met by our guide and transferred to our centrally located hotel. The charming and fascinating capital of Laos, Vientiane is a small city conjuring up exotic images, with the curious mix of Lao, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, French influences. We start our half day city tour with Wat Sisaket, the oldest temple still standing in Vientiane. This amazing structure features remarkable frescoes and Buddha statues. Close to this masterwork is the former royal temple of Haw Pha Kaew which previously housed the famous Emerald Buddha Image. Afterwards we continue driving to Patouxai. This imposing monument standing in Lane Xang Avenue is well known as Vientiane’s own Arc de Triomphe and provides a stunning views of the city. We round off our day with a visit to the great sacred masterpiece and symbol of Laos, That Luang Stupa. O/N in Vientiane.

      The bustling central market in the heart of Vientiane, sells a wide away of local treasures. We wander this famous trading center before we head out of town to visit the giant Friendship Bridge and the impressive Buddha Park. This landmark represents a blend of Buddhist and Hindu sculptures created by mystical monk on a parkland located by the Mekong River. By early afternoon we depart for Vang Vieng. This small and tranquil village is famous for the beautiful scenery and becomes a new destination for anyone seeking the eco tourism or peaceful place to relax during days off.

    3. Day3 Vang Vieng ( Kayaking)

      Today we catch our vehicle for a short drive to Viengsamay about 10 km away from town. The local guide will provide some kayak orientation and instruction in paddling technique. We start paddling along the Nam Song River offering various small but funny rapids. The first stop is Tham Nam Thaem Cave which cuts straight through the mountain and provides a fantastic view of the Nam Kouang Valley. We continue kayaking to the Organic Farm, where mulberry tea and a variety of fruit are produced. The Tham None Cave lies further downstream and boasts one of the biggest caves in Vang Vieng. This sacred cavern once served as a rescue shelter for the villagers during the Second Indochina War. We complete the final leg of paddle when reaching this hidden cave. O/N in Vang Vieng. (B,L)

    4. Day4 Vang Vieng – Luang Prabang

      The following destination of our trip is Luang Prabang. We wind our way past the stunning mountain scenery. The road conditions are very poor therefore we need to bring along our spirit of adventure until Luang Prabang. This delightful town with its gleaming temple roofs, fading colonial architecture and stunning mountain backdrop, retains an unique charm rarely found in all Asia. There are plenty to see in Luang Prabang, some of which are the impressive stupa of Wat Visoun, the Srilankalese styled temple of That Marko, the shrine of Wat Aham and the five tiered roof Wat Mai. We visit these sites before we embark on a climb up to Phousi Hill for a beautiful panorama view from the town center to the mighty Mekong River. There are 329 steps leading us on zigzag way past various temples to the sacred, gilded stupa of Wat Phousi at the summit. O/N in Luang Prabang. (B)

    5. Day5 Luang Prabang – Tad Sae Waterfall ( Biking)

      The mountainous areas around Luang Prabang Town are also home of many ethnic groups and various stunning waterfalls littered in dense jungle. Today we get on our bikes to cycle through many peaceful villages and undulating terrains to Ban An. At this small village we embark a long tail boat for a cruise downstream on the Nam Khan River, giving us a taste of the tranquil countryside and an enjoyable escape. The boat will deliver us near Tad Sae waterfall. This is a pleasant stop for lunch and breather behind the cascades. We continue cycling to Ban Phanom, a well known weaving village of the Tai Lue people who used to make royal silk weaving textiles for the Lao former royal family. Upon leaving this visit we ride our bikes back and catch scenic views of the countryside . O/N in Luang Prabang. (B,L)

    6. Day6 Luang Prabang – Biking – Pak Ou Caves ( Biking)

      Heading north of the town we cycle around 25 km on a good road towards the village of Ban Pak Ou. The roads are easy but it is still funny experience. We have a chance to make fun with waving kids on road sides and see villagers on their daily works such as logging, herding buffalo, tilling the field or weaving brocade. At end of our ride we board on a boat crossing the Mekong River to Pak Ou and Thamting Caves. These mysterious caves are crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes. We visit these famous grottos and cruise back to Luang Prabang Town stopping en route at Ban Xanghai, where villagers make the potent local rice wine. O/N in Luang Prabang.(B,L)

    7. Day7 Luang Prabang – Departure

      The exploration of Luang Prabang would not be complete without a visit to the national museum at the former Royal Palace. This interesting structure displays a lovely collection of treasures and artifacts reflecting the richness of Lao culture dating from the days of the early kings right through the last sovereign. The next stop is Wat Xieng Thong, which nestles at the meeting of the Mekong and the Nam Khan River. The temple structures are decorated in various ways with gilded stuccoes, doorways and marvellous tree life mosaic pattern on an outer wall, representing the ancient temple architecture of Luang Prabang. We spend our time to see these sites and enjoy a walk around the nearby old quarter streets or simply relax at riverside bar. The trip ends after your transfer to Luang Prabang Airport for departure.

    Our trekking tours can be classified into three levels

    Easy
    There are about 8 – 10K to walk on flat roads. No previous experience is necessary. Anyone in good health and fit enough to perform an occasional hike can take an easy level trek. Vietnam easy walks are provided in Hanoi, Bac Giang, Mai Chau, Ngoc Son Ngo Luong…

    Moderate
    There are about 10 – 15K to hike on flat and hilly roads. At this point too, no special background is required. Hikers accustomed to trekking in hilly areas of Mai Chau, Pu Luong or Lai Chau, Yen Bai successfully accomplish our treks “moderate”, provided they are in good health and to have a correct fit. These treks are moderate or easy hikes with an average duration or shorter but more difficult steps.

    Difficult
    There are about 16 – 23K to trek on uphill/downhill dirty, rocky trails. Physical fitness is very important for these treks and you may have to lead you home before the trek. Most treks in this level are comparable with long rides in the Fansipan mountain or the the mountainous region of Ha Giang, Cao Bang, sometimes higher altitudes. The climate and isolation can also participate in difficulty. Prior trek experience is preferable but not vital if you have confidence in your fitness.

    Tour Guide
    Our tour guides speak English or French. Etc… They hold a university degree in tourism and national license as a guide. If you wish to send a tour leader along with any group, he or she can fully rely on the knowledge and experience of our local guides.
    Remote treks are always accompanied by a local representative to deal with permits and authorities and manage the porter team. They speak the local dialects, know the cultural traditions and give tips on suggested behavior in fragile ecological areas and tribal communities. For some itineraries, the role of tour leader and representative is combined.

    Porter
    During all trekking tours we may use local porters to carry your luggage as well as our trekking equipment, where required. To generate local income we employ local villagers for this task. Participants will have their own porter, carrying trekking equipment and luggage to a maximum of 15 kg per client. Travelers only have to carry their day packs. Read more how to pack

    Vehicle
    Depending on the nature of the tour, journeys will be accompanied by an air-conditioned car/minibus cover the larger overland sections.

    Food
    During all treks meals will be arranged on the spot, in local restaurants and at home in local villages along the way. The meals are prepared by our cooks, the local guide or by the local host. Our cooks are well trained to prepare and serve food hygienically and they cook a variety of local delicacies. Sometimes this may include the slaughter of a chicken, duck or pig. We sometimes have the chance to bring western food, and snacks from Hanoi.Etc… for breakfast and picnics along the way, and coffee and tea are available in abundance. Our cooks make a special effort to provide as much variety as possible. The porters give necessary assistance on the spot.

    Drinking water
    There are many shops and villages that have bottled water for sale. On remote trekking tours, we buy a sufficient supply of water for the next couple of days. We recommend bringing some water purifying tablets.

    Packing
    Comfortable lightweight clothing in natural fabrics such as cotton is most suitable for travelling in Vietnam. Etc… The dress code is fairly casual as in most parts of the tropics but it is advisable to cover arms and legs in the evenings against biting insects. A lightweight raincoat is a good idea in the rainy season. During the winter months warm clothing is needed for visiting the north of Vietnam. Visitors should not wear shorts, short skirts or other skimpy clothing when visiting religious buildings such as pagoda, temple, communal house and shoes should be removed before entering a private home.
    What you take will naturally depend upon where you are travelling and the style of journey you are undertaking, and it can often be difficult to decide what to pack. Nevertheless, the following should act as a useful checklist of essential items worth thinking about taking.

    1 medium-sized backpack.
    Comfortable walking shoes with good grip
    1 long (easy to dry) pants and 1 long sleeved shirt to wear during the trek (easy to dry).
    1 pair of flip flop (sandals).
    1 pair of shorts and T-shirt to wear at camp site (2 if you do 4-day trek).
    1 medium-sized towel.
    1 medium-sized dry bag.

    Responsible Tourism
    We strongly believe that Responsible Tourism can support to local communities: proving incomes,positive cultural exchanges and an incentive to protect natural environment. We recognize that there is always space for improvement. We continually strive to narrow the gap between principle and practice.

    Environment
    We have been turning environmentally responsible tourism into practices to minimize tourist impact upon the local habitat. From biodegradable soaps to re – usable water containers, we provide clients with the best information and mean to help them identify and implement effective ways to positive protect local nature and communities. It is a vital criteria that can be passed on and abided by all, long after the trip ended.

    Community
    Prior to our tours, we contact and work with local community leaders to make sure we are welcome and in a manner that minimizes negative social and cultural impacts. We visit local development and community projects specific to the region, encouraging customers to donate and assist such a projects in appropriate and sustainable manner.
    Where make sure that where and whenever possible our tours positively benefit the local community. We stayed at locally owned accommodation and visit cottage industries for local handicraft souvenir, generating income for local business. We often employ, hire support team such as local guide, motor-taxi drivers, cook assistants on all trips to ensure that the local community benefit not only short term but with increased employment opportunities for the future.
