On day two we continue on trekking into the rugged and densely forested mountains west of the Nam Ou valley. Here a trail leads us through remote and beautiful bamboo forests and stunning limestone scenery. We enjoy a picnic lunch in the jungle before carrying onwards to Ban Nasavang where we spend the night.

After enjoying our breakfast we trek uphill for one hour before reaching the jungle! Entering the jungle we continue on trekking for another two hours until arriving at Mok Mueng, abandon village, where we stop for lunch. After lunch we take a break before heading down hill for about three hours. Along the way there are some truly fabulous views over the Nam Ou River and the surrounding valley.
