ITINERARY
Day 1: Ban Chalernsouk-Ban Nalan. Approx. 4-5 hours
The traditional two-day excursion, led by a local English speaking guide, starts at Ban Chaleunsouk, south of Luang Namtha town. You’ll ascend through a forest and pause at a ridge offering great views. The trail then descends through centuries-old trees and past an Indochina War gunnery emplacement to the Nam Ha River and Ban Nalan.
Dinner is often enjoyed with a prominent village elder, from who you can learn about Khmu culture, and offer insight into your lifestyle. Remember, curiosity runs both ways, especially when sipping Lao Hai (rice wine) from a jar through bamboo straws.
Day 2: Ban Nalan-Ban Nam Goy-Ban Sop Sim. Approx. 5 hours kayaking
After a leisurely breakfast continue down river. Visit other khmu & Lanten village to see making bamboo paper, nature dyeing. The section of the river will reveal the best forest views and the most exciting rapids of the trip. Arriving at the confluence of the Nam Tha and Nam Ha rivers paddle down the Nam Tha for a way before arriving at the Khmu village of Ban Sop Sim where your transport back to Luang Namtha will be waiting you.
