I´m a 58 year old guy who has done countless high alpine adventures. I wanted a change. I wrote to various Eco agencies in Laos. The response I got from The Hiker sealed the deal. Tom the manager, an elite guide himself, and humble all-around good person, said "we can take you as deep into the forest as you want to go."

I pummeled him with emails about gear, customizing the route, customs & culture, etc. His patience & humor were outstanding.

Upon arrival, I stopped by to let them know I was in town. From the very first second, I knew I chose right. A few guides were lounging about their office. Seriously, I was genuinely welcomed.

Alone with my 2 guides for 5 days in the small steep mountainous terrain was amazing. "Air" (The Hiker) & "Boun" (Kamu Village) increased my forest skills & kept me well fed on banana tree flowers, bamboo, rattan, frogs and more.
A truly wild time was had, but that is my story. I hope you can create your own.
Tom & his capable team have built a solid agency providing more for trekkers than just a canned adventure. He has put together a family of keen guides who are fantastic. And when your trip is done, you stay their friend! For instance, I was sitting in the local airport waiting for my outbound flight, I heard someone call my name. I looked up, it was "Mun", a guide from The Hiker standing there. He drove out to the airport to say so long with some bamboo take-aways. Amazing!

In the end, remember, it is what you, yourself, make it out to be!

Hi Tim, Let me go into deep details about this 5days adventure of Tim, it was very unique and memorable. He contacted us by email, and asked can The Hiker provide a guide to take him in the forest somewhere, and leave him there for a 4-5days, to me it was reasonable and I might have thought the same in a moment of my life, to get someone take me to an unknown forest then leave me alone there. But in a normal way I have to say it's high risk or another word "Dangerous" so it's not allowed by the local government. And finally Tim decided to trek with a guide, he kept updating me about his travelling plan, he bought a ticket from Germany to BKK, then flew to Vientiane (the capital of Laos) and stay a night in Vientiane preparing his mind and then flew over to Luang Namtha where his 5 day trek will start in the next two days. It was so pleased meeting with Tim in person, and we spent time chatting and organising his big knife to take home, and last minute before he fly out of Luang Namtha giving bamboo cups, and several months later Tim send me a Kill A BEAR knife from America. Thank you so much for your strong decision making to fly from Germany to do the 5days jungle trek in Luang Namtha, even though you have only a week of holiday. Thank you so much for your KA-BA knife, I love it and i take it with me very often in my adventures. Stay safe, enjoy your next travel. Warm regards Tom.
