The trails were quite narrow and often needed a bit of clearing with a machete. We were able to swim in the river at the village and at the end of the trek and wash in a small stream in the jungle. The only small criticism is that we weren't told that there would be no toilet in the village... More

It was a true experience travel to Laos with Phou Lu Travel. We were taken through the amazing jungles of Laos, visit the hill tribe. The tour was so well organized and our tour guide was amazingly knowledgable about the region. We loved our time in Laos and definitely want to come back some day. Luang Namtha, I already miss...

We did not tour with Phou Iu Travel (though we did stay at the excellent Phou Iu Bungalow), but a warning NOT to get bus tickets from them. Go to the store a short walk down the road that sells actual bus tickets. We bought 'tickets' from Luang Namtha to Chiang Rai. We simply got a receipt, not tickets. Then... More

We signed up for 2 days tracking and one day paddling, had a fantastic time. We went with one English speaking guide and one local guide for $180 US per person (for just myself and my partner). The first day we were picked up and taken to the local market in namtha to help choose the food for our trek... More

In the agency, you'll see a paper with many things, you'll be supposed to do and see. The truth is, you'll treck for sure, have some information about the jungle, if you ask for, but you'll have nothing in the villages!!! The guide didn't want to meet people living there, and said " we'll be able to walk around the... More

our comment's relatedto a 2 day trekking local village guide utility: less than average, many questions not response, few explanations about villagers tour: could be done in 1 day organisation: average, few details changed would improve a lot fun and sense of trail

We wanted a trek that took us on trails where motorbikes couldn't go as well as providing an opportunity to penetrate the Namtha Protected Area. This trek gave us this and more. The village stay enabled us to experience like in a traditional Khmu village and sleep in the house of one of the families. Everyone just went about their... More

Fantastic experience. My friend and I, wanted a challenging trekking tour that we could spend most of the day trekking, and we got exactly that. Our tour guide for the three days, Kamsern, was very knowledgeable and made our trip very enjoyable, above and beyond what we were expecting. We stayed in the village one night, and got to meet...
