Luangphabang Trekking one day
We begin our journey with our mountain bikes through the Laotian hinterland. Still, there are many new things to discover. Before noon, we finally get to the Elephant Village, located on the banks of the Nam Khan River. A beautiful, idyllic place in the center of this magnificent landscape. On our way through the Lao backwater we see farmers cultivating the land, forests of teakwood, distant mountain vistas, and the smiles of the locals who are in turn curious about their observers.
After a lunch break in the wonderful elephant village with its breathtaking view of a 700m towering mountain range, we get an introduction to the elephants. Enjoy your elephant ride (1 hr.) in lush, green nature. A boat ride takes you to the cascade of the Tad Sae waterfall where we can take a refreshing swim (waterfall dry Feb.-July) After a short hiking trail in the afternoon we meet then our host family in a small Laotian village from one of the hill tribes living in the area. Here we are invited to cook and eat together, and probably go to bed early
