Nong Khiaw's Countryside by Bike, Nong Khiaw Laos, Luang Prabang and The North
Explore some of the more remote and beautifully untouched areas of Laos around Nong Khiaw by bicycle. Your guide will take you out of town on a pleasant bike ride to explore remote villages whilst pedalling past stunning mountainous backdrops. Your first stop is to the historical Pha Thok Cave, used as a head quarter by the communist command during the Indochina-war, as well as a shelter for villagers during the American bomb runs. From here, continue cycling along tracks that pass through several more villages of different ethnic groups including Thai Lu, Khmu and Hmong.
Matt really listened to what we were looking for and our itinerary was a joint project making good use of his knowledge and experience. We were really impressed by how well most of the hotels and guides were integrated into their local communities and were particularly impressed by Pong who guided us in the north of Laos. He really went the extra mile to help us meet and talk with local people and he was clearly well known and liked in the villages we went to!
