1st day trek, meeting the Hmong people (L, D)
Your guide will be meeting you at 8:30am at your hotel to drive first up north for about 1 hour before reaching a village where will start our journey. For our trip, a village-based guide will join our day journey, and will first assist the visit of this village, and help you buying the last thing you need for your journey. The trek can then start.
On the morning, we shall take around 4-5 hours through primary forests, beautiful upland rice paddies field, dense mixed jungle with a remarkable diversity of tree species, before having lunch.
We will choose the top of a mountain offering an exceptional panoramic viewpoint, where the guide will prepare the Lao lunch.
After lunch, we will also walk for another 4-5 hours surrounded by a nature that provides food, water, and medicine. End afternoon, we will reach the Hmong village of Ban Mock Choung. This ethnic is very special and knowledgeable for medicinal plants, and for the powerful shamans.
2nd day of trek, meeting with Khmu (B,L,D)
The weak up will be probably very early, with the melody of the cocks, and the quick general activity to prepare the breakfast and go to work, mostly on fields around. Hmong people are considered as very hard workers.
We shall take a bit time to look around, and at 9am max should start our wild walk to reach our next "meeting point". This morning is a 3-4 hour trek. If we are not too noisy, we shall see a dear, a jungle fawn, a wild pig, a monkey, a civet cat or a saguaro, otherwise you might only see their tracks.
When hunger meets a beautiful point of view will sounds time for lunch. Your guide will prepare it when you can take time to relax, go around, and take pictures.
Depending on the time you did start, the second part of the day might be more easy, and you shall arrive to our next homestay mid-afternoon. You will discover there the Khmu way of life, largely considered here as the most Epicurean ethnic in Laos.
3rd day of trek, back to Luang Prabang (B,L)
After breakfast, we shall start our last day journey with an old grown jungle park walk, crossing Hmong and Khmu villages where we always take time to visit, to have a fresh coconut, or simply a little pause.
Like every day, we will find the right place to have lunch in a nice area with a nice view and feeling.
The trek will finally ends with the arrival in Ban Luay Lueang (or Ban Lath Tha Hae, depending on the season) settled nearby the Nam Ou River’s bank. There a transportation will bring us back to Luang Prabang.
End of the service.
