Feb 26, 2012 - Kayaking in Muang Ngoi up the Nam Ou River

We kept our guesthouse in LP. and mini-bused (3 hours), and boated (2.5 hours) to this little village. We had booked a Lao Youth Travel (NGO) kayak trip for 2pm, but got there at 4! So it goes in Laos. We just spent 3 hours from this point on exploring. And left to return the next day to LP. Great adventure! So...imagine kayaking down a tributary of the Mekong, in the mountains north of Luang Prabang, with swallow like birds (but not swallows) swooping in the dusk - hopefully eating the very mosquitoes destined for our juicy white flesh!...

Jan 16, 2009 - Nong Khiaw and Muang Ngoi Neua

We headed south after Luang Nam Tha. Our destinations in mind were the villages of Nong Khiaw and Muang Ngoi Neua. Both scenic, nestled in the mountains and close to the Mekong River.

They looked like they were from those old asian brush paintings of the old chinese sage walking down a narrow path carrying a couple of buckets of water as he scaled the mountain side. Anyway, something like that. We checked into a...

The added bonus to this is we got to visit her house (and use her bathroom) when we dropped her off at her village. After the bus ride, we jumped in a long boat for a 2 hour ride up the river to Muang Ngoi. The boat was supposed to leave at 2pm, but since there were not enough passengers we waited until 3:30pm when a busload of fresh tourists arrived. We later found...

Oct 6, 2007 - Muang Ngoi

Travel Buddies: Laura (London), Erik and Fran (Belgium), Seb (France), Katy (NZ) An absoultely stunning place, we spent three days here relaxing in little bamboo guesthouses on the river. There were huge limestone peoks everywhere which made for good caves to explore, treks to do, river trips to take and most importantly to lie around doing nothing. We had some rain, muddy adventures and a great time. We got the slow boat down to Luang Prabang from here which was great trip through really beautiful scenery, playing kids and chugging boats...
