We stayed here for two nights and it was a wonderful way to recuperate after our journey. We had our lodge to ourselves and it was peaceful and restful. The staff are from the local villages and couldn't do enough for us. The food was tasty and plentiful. The room was comfortable.
The best thing had to be the large verandah and the view from it.

If you are looking to see more of Thailands unique culture rather than lying by the pool in a resort, then this is the place to go.
Lanjia Lodge is a community based project that was set up to assist the local Hmong and Lahu hill tribes people to gain skills and knowledge to help them to sustain their local environment and help improve their living conditions.
We stayed in one of the 4 x 4 bedroom cottages each bedroom with a private bathroom. These cottages were built by the local tribes people using natural Eco friendly materials and decorated with bedspreads and cushions made by the batik and stitching works of the local tribes women.
We had 2 beautiful young villagers who attended the cottage, bringing us our meals and drinks and making sure we were so well looked after.
The meals are absolutely amazing, so tasty, fresh and plentiful and made using local products and cooked by the villagers and served on the balcony overlooking the breathtaking views of the Mekong River and Laos beyond.
We were shown around by local villagers and one of the women helped us to create our own batik souvenir which was great fun. We visited a tea plantation and tasted the tea as well as planted a tree which helps in sustaining the environment.
A very unique and worthwhile experience that gave us a small insight into the lives of these beautiful people.
Absolutely loved it!

Talk about something different. Lanjia Lodge to me, was a place to re-group and re-gain perspective as opposed to getting confused with all the distractions in our daily lives. The view is gorgeous, the air is clean, the staff members: authentic and hospitable, and the food is amazing. Run by members of the Hmong tribe, the trekking around the tribe takes you to natural wonders that make you forget the concrete jungle and gain an appreciation for nature the way it was wonderfully designed.

I had an amazing view out my bathroom. The common area had a breathtaking view of the valley, and in the morning when the clouds rolled in, it makes you feel as though you're in heaven.

This isn't luxury in a manufactured sense. So rating it on Tripadvisor is actually very hard because the right questions aren't being asked, It's luxury in a natural type of way, and even though it's not for everyone, I personally loved it.

We spent two nights at the Lodge and did some trekking. We were out of season and so had the cottage to ourselves. The lodge itself is very comfortable and the scenery is stunning. The food provided was delicious and plentiful and the staff were very helpful. We did two treks - one to a waterfall and a day-long one through a valley. Both were great fun and a brilliant way of exploring the area and taking in the area. Being the end of September, it was quite hot work, but it was also nice to visit at a non-touristy time. I'd recommend Lanjia Lodge to anyone looking for some adventure in beautiful Northern Thailand.

We stayed at the Lanjia Lodge in April 2015. We found the entire concept fascinating and have a
real interest in the Hill People of Thailand and Laos.

We were not disappointed. This lodge is excellent, run by the local Hill People of the Hmong and Lahu tribes.

The views have to be seen to be believed, a photograph does not do the location justice!

The rooms were comfortable but very simply furnished with a western style toilet and shower.
All immaculately clean.

Food was local style and delicious and provided by the local Hmong chef, we were looked after by Lahu couple as house keepers.

The programme of activities give you an insight into the lives of these extremely hardworking and friendly people. We really enjoyed the tour of the villages and chatting with a local farmer via the
excellent guide who accompanied us. The batik was good fun and a nice souvenir to bring home.

If you have an interest in the lives of the Hill People and wish to really embrace and try to understand their way of life, this is a really informative way to gain a greater understanding in a way that lets the people themselves actually benefit from tourism. This could be the place for you.

With simple accommodation, local food and amazing views this is really Heavenly Lanjia! but do remember that 'Hill' is a clue to some very steep walking!
