Our trip leads us through the most beautiful provinces of Laos.The “Luang Prabang”– “Xieng Khouang”– and “Vientiane”- provinces.
“Luang Prabang”-city and -area is UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE.
“Xieng Khouang” province is nominated to UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE. You will see there thousands of prehistioric stone-jars.
“Xieng Khouang” province is “The mountain-area of Laos”. With the 5 highest mountains of Laos. Till 2.800m high.
“Vientiane" is the capitol-city of Laos. Surrounded from beautiful nature. And the very large and nice “Nam Ngum” lake and dam is very near.
Everywhere on our way you will see a very beautiful nature, a lot of caves, great lakes, waterfalls, hotsprings, beautiful temples, large jungles, amazing green and high mountains and hilltribevillages with very interesting culture and lifestyle. And everywhere we will meet only nice and friendly Laospeople.
We will go a lot of dirtroads. From our resort till Luang Prabang (450km) about 80% on dirtroads.
We ride this trip only from November till end of February! Because during this time the weather sure is the best for traveling far away. No rain and not hot!
During this time (wintertime) Laos have following festivaldays which are very worth to see:
- December or January : “Hmong” New Year. The most colourful festival. It lasts about 10 days.
- Late December: “Khmu” New Year.
“Hmong and “Khmu” are two ethnic groups of Laos. Laos have more than 60 different ethnic groups (tribes) !
So Laos have much more tribes than all other southeast-asia-countrys.
- January/February: “Kud Chin” & “Tet Viet” New Year (Chinese & Vietnamese New Year).
This festival lasts about 3 days.
Today Laos outside his citys is like Thailand 100 years ago. And so still very original and with a very interesting culture. Many villages till this time have no electricity.
Laos is safe like Thailand for visitors ! Sure you will enjoy our trip! And sure you will fall in love with Laos and his people !! A lot of the Laospeople are still very poor - but very very friendly !

In “Phonsavanh” we are in the center of our next activitys. Around “Phonsavanh” are a lot of sightseeingplaces and the mystery of “PLAIN OF JARS”. Again we have some days there. But we must care too to be back end of the 14 days at our resort in Thailand.
