Luang Prabang Countryside

Day 1 Luang Prabang - Ban Nongphou

After departing at 8:30 am from your hotel, we cycle to the river bank and take a ferry to cross the mighty Mekong River to Ban Xeng Mean. We cycle off-road, exploring the area with several stops to take pictures before reaching the village of Ban Nakham. The village is popular for sugar cane and Kaolam (sticky rice and beans in bamboo), which are tasty local treats. We continue to cycle along green rice fields stopping in different villages and tribes to see how the locals live their daily lives. A local style lunch will be served in Ban Som. After lunch we continue cycling and pass the villages of Khmu and Lao Loum until we get to the beautiful waterfall, Tad Hoykoua (Hundred Families Waterfall). After taking a break we will cycle another 2 km to Ban Nongphou (Khmu and Hmong village), where the locals will host us for the night. Our accommodation is with a local family and is basic with a shared bathroom, but comfortable.
