0800 to 1700 Hours - 1 Day Trekking to Hmong & Khmu Villages. This one day trip will take us up the hills to remote villages occupied by Hmong and Khmu tribes. We will walk through pass the paddy fields and forest in beautiful hilly scenery typical for northern Laos. On the top of the mountains we can explore the lifestyle of people hardly touched by modern life. Our English speaking guides will explain to us the habits and daily routine of the isolated life in these villages. These remote areas will charm us with the pristine simplicity of rural life and we will get a first – hand inside in the daily routine of the tribes. The route will take us to villages that are set on the top of the mountain range. On the way back the small paths through the farming fields will take you through the daily hard work of locals between the green peaks of the hills. This trek shows us the amazing hill tribes and their daily life experienced in the stunning mountainous scenery of the Luang Prabang province.
