Laos, Luang Prabang and The North
Info : Luang Prabang By Bicycle
Start the day early with one of the most memorable sights of Luang Prabang. At dawn hundreds of saffron robed monks move silently through the streets to collect alms, (offerings of food). Your guide will explain the background behind this ritual which is still very much a part of everyday life in Laos and you will have the chance to make âmeritâ. Itâs early but well worth the wake up call! Return to your hotel for breakfast.
After breakfast its time to begin the bicycle ride out of town to Kuang Sii Waterfalls. The distance is about 30km and the cycle ride should take approximately 3 hours passing through very scenic Laotian countryside, with rice paddies and many ethnic minority villages along the way. It is possible to stop and visit the Khamu minority village of Ban Thapaene, or one of the Hâmong villages along the journey. The ride is mostly undulating with some flat stretches and some steeper hilly sections. There will be an air conditioned vehicle in support, so itâs also possible to take a rest and ride in the van if the going gets too tough!
On arrival at Kuang Sii there is plenty of time to enjoy a picnic lunch and, if water levels permit, to take a refreshing dip in the falls. These beautiful falls cascade over many calcified tiers and down several hundred feet into a series of cool, turquoise pools. The water here has a clear blue-green tint due to the high mineral content. Late in the afternoon its time to begin the return journey to Luang Prabang town â the energetic can cycle back or there is the option of journeying back in your private air-conditioned vehicle.

The guides and drivers couldn't have been better, 10 out of 10. Dao was outstanding. He made the trip extra special for us. His knowledge of the area and the whole country, history etc. was fantastic. He was brilliant with the children too, he made the trip fun, exciting and safe. If ever he was talking to a local in Lao, he would always involve us in the conversation and explain what was happening. At the end of our 9 days with him we didn't want him to go.
