Enjoy the beautiful natural landscapes, fresh air and village life on this one-day hiking trip. This tour takes you hiking through the foothills of beautiful limestone mountains covered with jungle to visit local Hmong and Khmu hill tribe villages. The tour includes a scenic ride on the Nam Khan River and, during the wet season, a visit to the refreshing Tad Sae waterfall where you can swim and explore. Funds from this tour help support the local community.

Start with a morning transfer 25 minutes out of town to our Tiger Trail Adventure Camp. Cross the Nam Khan River by boat to the trail-head and begin our day hike through rice paddies and middle canopy. Our first stop will be a Khmu village named Ban Houay Fai, where the local children are likely to greet you with curiosity and smiles. Your guide will introduce you to the local life and customs.

Continue along ridges, limestone grottos and rocky slopes for lunch at Ban Tinpha, a Hmong village from which this trail gets its name. Mountains and valleys offer many opportunities to experience a variety of flora and fauna. Stop, look, listen and ask your guide about the life teeming around you. Weave your way through paddies and countryside. Chat with villagers and ask questions about life in Laos.

End in the riverside village, Ban Houay Yen. Our boat will be waiting to take you down a beautiful stretch of the Nam Khan with a stop at the Tad Sae Waterfall. Relax and soak in Tad Sae Falls after a day of trekking before returning by boat and vehicle to Luang Prabang.

The total trek is about 12 km, taking 4-5 hours through deciduous forest and farmland.

Please note: During the low water season (February to July), the Tad Sae Waterfall can be very low or dry and may be omitted.
