7 Most Ideal Trekking Routes to Explore in Laos
Trekking to The 100 Waterfalls
The first attractive hiking site we’ve recommended is the 100 Waterfalls, which has various waterfalls in northern Laos. Local citizens have utilized this area for years as a direct route connecting with the Nam Ou valley’s separated villages.
On the edges of Don Khoun Village, about 10 kilometers downstream from Nong Khiaw, is the trailhead. The trip includes several levels of cascading falls as well as tough hiking and wet terrain. Although there aren’t precisely 100 waterfalls, the track entices experienced hikers to explore the grasping ropes, climbing boulders, and splashy streams.
Trekking through Bokeo Nature Reserve
Bokeo Nature Reserve, situated in northwest Laos, protects 123,000 hectares of primary rainforest area. It is a shelter for rare and endangered creatures such as tigers, bears, elephants, chimps, and a diverse range of birds and insects.
If you want to immerse yourself in the world of nature and animals, this attraction will be so fantastic. It contains real hiking trails through the beautiful tropical forest, along with monkey bridges and zip-lining challenges.
If you have an overnight stay in the magnificent Gibbon Experience, a one-of-a-kind treehouse with a spectacular view of the forest, your hike in Bokeo Nature Reserve would be perfect. Keep in mind that the longer you hike, the more difficult the route. But this beautiful woodland scenery is definitely worth your effort.
Trekking through Phongsali
Phongsali is one of the most isolated and adventurous wilderness places in the world. You will find mysterious waterfalls, secret caverns, forest paths, steep mountains, and indigenous hill-tribe communities in this picturesque high-altitude hamlet.
The majority of trekkers from across the world have tested and praised the hiking trails in Phongsali. It’s also a terrific way to combine physical and cultural activities. Many trekkers have been influenced by the stories of the Khmu, Hmong, and other minority communities. You should stay in their houses for a few days to understand how the locals live here. You can choose our Laos tour packages to get here and experience this amazing journey.
Trekking to Attapeu
Attapeu is one of the few trekking sites offering untamed landscapes and fascinating ethnic culture. The great hiking trails give you a chance to get away from the rush and bustle of city life. Instead, you go to rocky mountains, gorgeous valleys, and tranquil rivers to enjoy the fresh air and find peace in your mind. Dense forest, two enthralling Tad Phok, Tad Phapheng Waterfalls, Xe Pian National Protected Area, Ban Mai Village, and various ethnic groups are waiting for you.
Western visitors are attracted to Attapeu because of its ethnic variety, which has piqued their interest in cultural diversity and fascinating hiking experiences. If you’re a trekker with an adventurous attitude and a wanderlust desire, you will enjoy a day-and-night stay in Attapeu. When you can’t find or book a homestay, go to Ban Mail Village, which is on the outskirts of the National Protected Area.
Trekking to Tad Lo Village
If you decide to take Laos private tours, Tad Lo will be a perfect place, a laid-back town located 85 kilometers from Pakse in Salavan Province. Within 10 kilometers of Tad Lo, you may find a series of three spectacular waterfalls by following the banana-pancake forest route. The first set is Tad Hang, which is the smallest and gentlest, and offers the greatest opportunity for a swim and a cool drink. The second is Tad Lo, which is 1.5 kilometers upstream, and the third, Tad Soung, is 8 kilometers upstream.
Every day at about 4 p.m., a dam will be released, causing the water level to rise rapidly. Therefore, remember to check the area first if you want to hike up to the top of the waterfall or even leap off it. Apart from trekking, you can also visit the local tribes and speak with the Katu and Alak tribes. If you want to have a one-of-a-kind experience in the Land of Million Elephants, try elephant riding along the falls or have an afternoon elephant bath at the Tad Lo Lodge.
Trekking to Kuang Si Fall
Luang Prabang is a popular trekking destination with stunning landscapes, ethnic settlements, diverse traditions, and gorgeous animals. Kuang Si Fall, in particular, is a magnificent work of art that will make your walk even more enjoyable. The Kuang Si Waterfall is a natural beauty combined between the blue of crystal water and the green of the lush forest, painting stunning scenery in the sky.
You’ll get the opportunity to enjoy the route snuggled in the green tropical jungle and the mysterious legends from the locals as you trek through the gorgeous scenery. Spend your time swimming in the cool water after trekking to the top of the waterfall. Aside from Kuang Si Fall, we highly recommend Luang Prabang’s nearby attractions. Trekking through rice fields, farms, jungle forests, and local communities will provide a serene experience that allows you to obtain a genuine understanding of rural life and ethnic minorities’ various cultures.
Trekking through Nam Ha National Protected Area
The Nam Ha National Protected Area is a tourist destination in Luang Namtha, which is the top term sought by foreign adventurers looking for a real hike in the Indochina area. North Laos is famous for its beautiful paths, stunning wild animal and forest experiences. The Protected Area is made up of a combined deciduous jungle and a series of mountains that reach China’s border. Because this is such a lush environment, you should only experience it during the dry season.
The Nam Tha, Nam Fa, and Nam Long rivers, which flow southeast to the Mekong, are three significant rivers. An on-foot exploration of the region is ideal for discovering wildlife or learning about the local culture.
