Thursday, Viengkham – Muang Hiam 119Km:
It makes no sense to start the daily description with the fact that we will stay today in breathtaking nature, that is the case daily. However, we have to point out that almost every day it is somehow another fantastic nature film that comes up to us in Northern Laos or that we drive through.
Today we continue on Route 1C and follow remote mountain roads. The road leads us through areas of Nam Et Phouleuy, where we have a picnic on the way. This remote part of Laos offers us a fantastic view of the temperate rainforests that cover these mountains. A small drive up to Muang Hiam. From here it’s only downhill to today’s destination, a small town on the banks of the Nam Khan.
Also here we will spend the night in a typical guesthouse, the Souksakhone guesthouse. One of our biggest tasks is to find accommodation options for such a large number of participants.
Difficulty level: difficult
5. Overnight stay: Muang Hiam
