Nam Ou Riverside Hotel & Resort
TRANQUIL LUXURY, AUTHENTIC LAOS, CLOSE TO LUANG PRABANG

Biking and Trekking (One day)


One hour cycling to Pak Ou Village and 4 hours trekking from Ban Kok to old Vang Lae Village then a short boat trip to the Resort.

This is an exciting route for adventurous people, not the hardest but not too easy for you to feel frustrated. Into the woods you will have the “waoh!” feelings as you walk through the small paths, sometimes having no clear sign of the trails, which is why it makes it more interesting.

At 8.30AM, your local guide will meet you at the resort after breakfast. Start off with the mountain bikes for about 45 minutes to 1 hour till Pak Ou Village, you will get across the river to explore the Holy Pak Ou Caves. There you will see thousands of Buddha statues, then you will get across the Mekong River to visit Ban Khok Village to where access is only by boat. In this charming village, you will see how people pass a relaxed life along with the two primary school classes, temple and cave that people believe where “Naga” (mythical serpent) was to protect the village. You will see a hole with ventilation which local people believe is the path way for “Naga” to get to the Nam Ou River. From this village will start a trekking of 4 hours. You will go across local organic farms and walk mostly in the forest. To make your trekking even more interesting you will have the opportunity to climb a steep cliff into the open cave where the local people usually go to catch bats and collect natural materials to make gunpowder. You will stop at a nice place to have your lunch. We will give your picnic box lunch. After relaxing a while, you will continue the trekking and will pass by some of the terrace rice fields. After reaching the destination place, the old abandoned Vang Lae Village, you will take a long tail boat back to the resort.

Tips: Pack very light as you will be walking through the forest and mountains.
