We depart from Luang Namtha at 8:30am and drive for 30 minutes southwards to Ban Jaluensouk (Khmu village) which is the starting point of our trek. On the way we pick up a village guide who is very familiar with the area. This trek of about 8-10 km is not too difficult. First, we will go uphill for a while before the terrain gets more flat. Only during the rainy season that it may be bit slippery from time to time. We will cross a few small and beautiful streams. The dense canopy is shading us and keeps the temperatures comfortably cool and the hike enjoyable.

We will stop and spend some time wherever we find something interesting and our experienced local guide will do the explanations. At noon, we will enjoy a rustic picnic lunch with traditional Lao food, accompanied by the music of bird songs and chirping cicadas. After lunch, we walk to meet with the waiting car which will bring us through to some open rice paddy fields with some good views. On the way back to town and the hotel, we may stop in some villages such as a Lanten village which is known for its paper made of bamboo pulp and Ban Pieng Ngam village famous for cotton and silk.
