Day 1: Luang Prabang - Arrival (None)
On arrival at the airport, you will be met and transferred to check in the hotel. The rest of the day is your own time at leisure. Overnight in Luang Prabang
Day 2: Luang Prabang - City Tour - Pak Ou Caves (B/-/-)
An optional early start gives you the fantastic opportunity to participate in the daily morning rituals of saffron-clad monks collecting offerings of Alms (ubiquitous sticky rice) from the faithful residents. This tradition is very unique in Laos, being the only Buddhist nation still preserving the procession.
Today, you will first visit the magnificent Wat Xiengthong with its roofs sweeping low to the ground, which represents classical Laotian architecture. We then embark on a cruise upstream on the Mekong River, which also gives us a breathtaking view of the tranquil countryside, before reaching the mysterious Pak Ou Caves, two linked caves crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes left by pilgrims. Along the way, we stop at the village of Ban Xanghai, where they make the local rice wine.
On arrival back in the city, we also have time to visit Royal Palace Museum, which hosts a range of interesting artifacts; before ascending the 329 steps to the top of Phousi Hill for a beautiful sunset view of the city and its glowing reflection on the Mekong River. The tour ends after a visit to the famous Night Market, where you can find a lovely collection of handmade textiles made by local and hilltribe people surrounding Luang Prabang. Overnight in Luang Prabang.
Day 3: Lao Spirit Resort - Full Day Trekking - Luang Prabang (B/L/-)
Early morning, transfer to Lao Spirit Resort.
Starting from your Bungalow down to the Nam Khan River, our boat will bring you across the Nam Khan River to start the walk to a Lao Theung (Khmu) village.
Careful not to disrupt the serenity of this isolated village, we can observe the locals as they carry out their daily tasks; take note that foreigners still remain a novelty here. You get the chance to ask questions and wander around in the small village. Have a look at the simple constructed school or hang out a bit with the chief of the village. Your guide will be happy to translate your questions.
Waving goodbye, we will enter an amazing world dominated by jungle, skyward limestone hills, and flourishing ferns. Edging forward along a steep, narrow and rocky track, we ascend to our final destination, sharing the trail with passing villagers on their way to market or fields. After a short but steep walk we finally arrive at the Lao Sung village (Hmong), an isolated and quaint village high up in the mountains. Welcomed by the shy yet curious kids, we enjoy lunch in a local, humble home to share in an unique encounter. Listen to the stories, play with the curious children or ask your questions about their way of life up here. In the afternoon, descending to several small villages along the way, you will follow a little stream, see villagers on their way back from markets or from the fields… until you reach the Nam Khan River. With a small boat we will be brought back to our starting point. Loaded with impressions, we head back to the relaxing atmosphere of the Lao Spirit Resort.
