Nong Khiaw -> Ban Houy Hoy -> Muang Ngoi -> Nong Khiaw
We begin the trip at 8.30 am and travel via boat to Muang Ngoi. Along the way we stop at the ethnic Khmu village of Houy Hoy, here we spend some time to look around the village and see how the Khmu people go about their everyday tasks before continuing onwards to Muang Ngoi. Upon arrival we take the short but steep walk to the Pha Noi cave and the nearby view point. Here we spend some time exploring and taking in the beautiful views before heading to the nearby Tad Mork waterfall where you can bathe in the cool water if before returning downhill to the village where we enjoy Lao style picnic.
After our lunch break you will receive a safety briefing and a short introduction to the basics of kayaking before heading off downstream. Floating down the river we quietly enjoy the serenity of this beautiful area and take in the sights, sounds and smells of nature. You are likely to encounter many different species of birds including the beautiful kingfisher! Be sure to keep your camera close by as there will be many great opportunities for some great pictures. As we continue downstream we stop off a couple of times to stretch our legs and take in the beautiful views before arriving back in Nong Khiaw between 3:30 and 4:30pm.
Approximately: 1 hour boating & 2.5 to 3 hours kayaking.
