While the natural setting of Nong Khiaw is beautiful from down at riverside, the view from above at this viewpoint is spectacular. For me this was worth the trip up from Luang Prabang. The trail is quite well maintained but it is not an easy walk. I used

Great trek amid splendid sceneries
The trip starts by boat with a stop in a local tribe village. The hike begins from the village with a walk along hills, rice fileds and rivers, before reaching the waterfalls. Cascade climbing is not really difficult. Make sure you wear a convenient pair

Bit of an adventure
If you are a die hard caving enthusiast then of course this cave will disappoint, but for anyone else it would be an experience. I am more of the former but still it was nice. You certainly need strong headlamp. There are creepy crawling narrow passages t

A shelter from bombs
Our guide brought us here for a short visit when we arrived in Nong Khiaw and explained how a thousand people had taken shelter in these caves to escape the American bombs in the secret war. I found it difficult to imagine what it must have been like for

BIG safety issues...
We have done the zip line today. It was after several fantastic zip lines in other countries: Thailand, Ecuador, South Africa,....This time it was bad from safety perspectives. My husband was the first one to reach the second deck. (Luckily he was secured) within seconds the deck broke down and my husband fell between the cracks. I wanted to quit right away but the owner who built this zip line promised us that this problem exists only in this deck and the following ones are ok. Apparently he knew about this issue and his plan was to fix it AFTER we’ll move on to next sections. Therefore he brought few people along with us on the tractor in order to fix the deck. AFTER? seriously? Would not it make sense fixing it prior to our arrival?We continued to the next stations. Before starting the next zip line I asked the guide specifically: should I use the breaks at the end of the line and he replied: NO breaks. When arriving to the next station WITH full speed ... the guide waiting there was taking pictures... when he finally got himself together and said: break ....it was too late and I bumped with my knee and face into the tree, One of the next activities on the trail was a suspension bridge. Several wooden plates were missing completely leaving holes on the path... you had to be very careful not to step on a broken one and surely not to fall to the holes. In one of the following stations one of the wooden plates broke under the leg of the guide. AND to complete the experience, once you finish the trail there’s a one hour walk out of which a big part is in a forest with huge amount of leeches: 1. No one tells you ahead of time to come with closed shoes and long pants2. There are no nylon bags or rubber boots or anything that you can put on your legs to protect against it. We ended up with many leeches whom we removed but two got under the socks and bitten us and one I found on my hand upon arriving to the hotel. So... what’s the bottom line: The view are great BUT the facilities are VERY badly maintained and better be avoided.
