Viewpoint Nong Khiaw/Ban Sop Houn

Reviewed By Satyabrata - New Delhi

I mainly went for the hike, not so much for the view, but the view turned out to be great too. The hike isn't challenging for a really fit person, for anyone else it would be somewhat moderate. Takes around 1.30 hr from the entrance gate to the top

Nong Khiaw Jungle Fly

Offering one of the best guide and tour companies in beautiful, scenic Nong Khiaw and vicinity. Large enough to handle all of your travel and outdoor activities, but small enough to give you individual and personalized service. Locally owned and operated.

100 Waterfalls

Reviewed By galgrg

I'll start with saying that it was a nice 1 day trek. Nice views, nice to walk through the Waterfalls. But it didn't feel like there were a lot of Waterfalls there and they are not so impressive.
How to get there and not through an agency:
1. Getting a boat from the dock. We walked up to the dock and asked the man in the ticket booth how much would a boat to don mongh costs. After that went to the boats and asked a man on the boat, he offered us a cheaper price. The people from the ticket office followed us and started to threat the man on the boat so he said he can't take us and that they will call a police - conclusion: Go straight to the boats and don't ask in the ticketing office.
In the end we agreed about 300,000 kip for the boat for both directions.
We were 13 people.
2. When we arrived to the village we had to take a guide with us (50,000kip for the whole group) and each of us had to pay an entrance fee of 10,000 kip.
To sum it all it was about 36,000 kip a person in a 13 people group, instead of about 160-180k for a person through one of the agencies.

Green Discovery

Reviewed By Mary P - Seattle

My husband and I loved this trip. Boating up the Nam Ou from Non Khiaw to Mong Noi we passed water buffalo, farming and weaving villages, and beautiful Mountains and jungle. We visited several villages along the way and trekked through rice fields and teak Forests to a remote village high in the Mountains for a homestay. We also visited a cave one village had used as a bomb shelter. We chose to kayak back to Nong Khiaw, which was another great way to experience the river. The scenery is stunning and the encounters with the local people and culture memorable. The food provided for our lunches was exceptional--all prepared at the local Green Discovery office. Our guide, Joi, was one of my favorite guides we experienced during our month-long Southeast Asia trip. Joi was attentive without being intrusive, thoughtful, reflective, gentle, good-natured, always ready with quiet humor and a beautiful smile, full of knowledge about northern Laos--its jungles and its peoples--and just a lovely, lovely person/spirit to be around at all times. You could tell he had great respect and love for the landscape and people.

Pha Kuang Cave

Reviewed By Satyabrata - New Delhi

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 to wriggle through if you want to go beyond the entrance temple. Pay the fee at the entrance or at the cafe below. The entrance offers great photo op.

Nam Ou Adventure

Reviewed By Rollo H

We booked a full day trip with this company for 250k p.p. Our group was a 10 persons group and the boat was totally full.
The boattrip went to an village called muang ngoy, after that we had some lunch and visited a nice waterfall. At the end u can kayak (we did) for 1.5 h back to Nong Khiaw.
The trip was well organised, the guide (Mr. Moon?) was very friendly, his english was exzellent.
We would book this trip again.
I could say nothing about the price rate, cause i dont compare to other companys in town.

Patok Cave

Reviewed By Catherine W - Chippenham, United Kingdom

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 the people hiding here sometimes only venturing out at night to tend their crops.
It was a quiet isolated peaceful place.
