Laos Travel Guide

Luang Nam Tha

The capital of Laos's northernmost province, Luang Nam Tha is the headquarters of the groundbreaking Nam Ha Ecotourism. The program, a model for Southeast Asia, actively encourages the involvement of local communities in the development and management of tourism policies. You can join a two- or three-day trek (organized by Forest Retreat, Green Discovery, the Boat Landing Guesthouse, and a few other agencies) through the

Nam Ha Protected Area, which provides some excellent opportunities for communing with nature, having outdoor adventures, and visiting ethnic minorities (Khamu, Akha, Lanten, and Yao tribes live in the dense forest).
