Trek through verdant mountains, take in the splendor of Kuang Si waterfall and learn about Laos’ fascinating diverse ethnic culture. At the end of the day, relax in the privacy of your own Bungalow. Your experience becomes part of a larger picture where diverse people work to improve local life.
We’ll bring you from Luang Prabang directly to the famous Kuang Si waterfall, the start of your 2-day leisurely journey to the Eco Bungalow. The waterfall is a hidden oasis amidst a tropical jungle, its waters a magical azure hue from the fall’s limestone ledges. Here you’ll also visit the Bear Rescue Center, a rescue sanctuary run by a non-profit organization.
After lunch, you’ll go on a scenic 3-hour trek to the village of Long Lao Mai. When you arrive, your guide will give you a tour of the village. Introduce yourself to the local people, learn a few words of the Hmong language or get a pickup game of football going with the village children. Later, feel free to unwind in the comfort of your Bungalow. Dinner is served on the sala outside under the stars, prepared by the villagers.
The Eco Bungalow is completely owned and managed by the village of Long Lao Mai, and the villagers receive 100% of the accommodation fees.
The second day you will start off the day with breakfast prepared by villagers. Your guide will tell you more about Hmong culture as you spend your last day in Long Lao Mai. You’ll have all morning to immerse in Hmong culture – learn how to cook traditional meals, help villagers work in their rice fields or learn how to weave from masters of the craft.
You have the option of staying for lunch or returning to Luang Prabang after breakfast.
The Eco Bungalow acts as supplemental income for the villagers – 100% of your accommodation fee is circulated back to the community as a form of income for maintaining and working in the Bungalow.
