Tour Details

The Namha and Namtha rivers are the major rivers that flow through the very heart of the Namha National Park in the Luang Namtha Province in Laos. Bountiful in mixed deciduous forests surrounding the river, and tall canopies imparting a cool, shady ambiance, these rivers are ideal to simply drift along their calm waters.

However, the rivers offer something for everyone! If adventure is your predilection, the Namha and Namtha rivers both harbour abundant sets of foamy rapids to excite you, which you can bravely kayak through, while also soaking in the breathtaking sights of the tropical forests, occasionally floating under small arches of bamboo bridges and watching colorful birds of the tropics fly by and watch your journey from atop. However, don’t forget to watch out for deceitful underwater stones of the river!

Here, you can enjoy the spirit of raging yet pristine waters of the Namtha and Namha rivers as well as witness the mysterious livelihoods of some of the timeless tribal villages veiled from the outside world. So surround yourself by the stupendous earthy waters of the rivers and mystic forests of Laos in this specially designed two nights and three days trip on the rivers of the Namha National Park and make memories away from the fast pacing world outside!

Activity Schedule

Day 1Kayaking down the Namha river

The journey will begin at 9:00am at a designated place where your adventure commences in a fun 30 minute tuk tuk ride to the Ban Thasae villages-our starting point for kayaking. At approximately 10 a.m., you will finally begin our much looked-forward to kayaking journey that would be 4-5 hours long. Having soaked in the awesomeness of the starting point, you would be guided through the basic instructions on kayaking techniques and safety measures to be followed during the entire expedition. Following this, you embark on our exploratory journey through the majestic spirit of Namha National Park! You would begin with paddling down the Namha river for over 2-3 hours. By about 1 p.m. lunch time, you will have a picnic set up following which you can enjoy a swim on the tranquil river water. Your guide will make sure that every one of you is drenched with or without kayaking! After lunch, the paddling continues through and this time, it’s the raging rapids you will have to now face. Bravely face the rapids, while the old and wise forests of the Namha National Park watch over you! After surviving the rapids, you can continue to be amazed by the picturesque thick greens of the forest and imagine the life it holds within. This is followed by experiencing some local flavor of Laos- a refreshing break at the Namha village, where you can attempt to exchange a few words or signs with the villagers residing there. You will also be briefly introduced to the Khamu lifestyle and be enlightened of the daily livelihood of locals who have made the Namha forests their home. By 3 p.m., you will visit another village, the Ban Nalan village, also another charming Khamu settlement. Here, you will be provided accomodation for the night. You can spend the remainder of the evening resting, swimming or exploring around!

Day 2Your trip continues!

Rise and shine! Breakfast will be served at 9 a.m., following which you commence your kayaking journey down the river once again! You will kayak for approximately 2-3 hours. In the first two hours of gentle paddling, you will have revitalizing breaks by visiting some more Khamu villages situated by the bank of the river. The last hour of kayaking will not be as gentle as how you began, as fresh rapids will formidably yet gratefully lead us to picnic spot in the jungle cozy enough for the entire group! As you approach the afternoon, while the sun begins its journey down the West, you will paddle on, switching between softer waters and shorter rapids! But do not forget to stun yourself with the magnificent forests and the beautiful tropical birds that will occasionally accompany you on your route! By 3 p.m., your kayaking will conclude finally at the Houay Leuat village. At the Houay Leuat village, you will halt for the night in eco-lodge accommodations provided by us.

Day 3The last leg of your journey

Good morning! Breakfast will be served at 9 a.m. and have yet another day of kayaking planned for you! Another 2-3 hours of kayaking takes us further South where you will see large expansions of cultivated greenery. By lunch time, i.e., around 1.30 p.m., you will halt at the quaint Khamu settlements and set up picnic spots by the bank of the river. Another 2 full hours of kayaking still awaits us post lunch! As you slowly say goodbye to the Khamu villages, the tropical gardens and rice paddies slowly begin to dwindle, giving way to wilder forests and wider expanses of untamed river. Be ready to hold on to your kayaks and recollect all your kayaking education as smooth waters make way for more rocky sets of rapids! These rapids will eventually drop you at Hatnaleng village of Khamu people. Your paddling journey finishes here. A two hours ride in tuk tuks will bring you back to Luang Namtha.
