Laos – Travelling up north, to Nong Khiaw

Tour leader, Tara, has sent back a few photos and thoughts from Laos after travelling on the recent Indochina Encompassed tour  – enjoy!


Not too many travellers make it up to Nong Khiaw and get to see the stunning mountainous landscapes of the north of Laos. But they should!

Nong Khiaw region provides some amazing hiking experiences as well as leisurely walks along the terraced rice paddy fields.

Cruising along the Nam Ou river will reward you with breathtaking scenery and warm-hearted encounters with friendly villagers.

About one hour upstream from Nong Khiaw, you will find the sleepy town of Muang Ngoi. It’s a place where daily routine revolves around community life, chickens and cows are an ubiquitous part of streetlife and kids play with whatever they can find.

And friendly foreigners are welcomed to participate in local life.

Let yourself be surprised by Lao community life’s creativity  and optimism. Put the beautiful north region and Nong Khiaw on top of your ‘to visit in Laos’ list!
