The trail begins Ban Chalernsouk, a Khmu village approximately 20 km from Luang Namtha. From here the trail ascends through 10-20 year old secondary forest until emerging into the upland rice fields. The path offers great views as it levels out along a ridge until re-entering forest. The trees here are much older having long been a major part of the natural history of the area you are trekking through. A tasty Lao-style picnic lunch is enjoyed in the cool upland forest or in the shade of a thatched farmer’s hut. Early afternoon, will find the trekkers in the Ban Nalan community forest. As the trail begins its descent down to the village, you pass a small clearing which served as a gunnery emplacement in the early 1960s during the civil war when Pathet Lao revolutionaries and Royalist Lao forces struggled for supremacy. But down by the calm Nam Ha River you overnight, dining on local food after a refreshing shower and rest, ready to settle in for a well-deserved sleep.

The second morning is a pleasant walk following the Nam Ha River. After breakfast the local guide from Ban Nalan will join your tour, before climbing up the mountain for a couple of hours. This is the most challenging section of the trail, but also the most beautiful, as it passes through stands of ancient trees, some five hundred years old, that create a high dense canopy, rich in birdlife. We need only pause quietly to hear the forest come alive with a mixed chorus of birds and insects. Now you will be in the center of Nam Ha NPA, to enjoy a traditional lunch on the trail, in a pristine forest surrounding you are unlikely to forget. After lunch the trek continues for 3 hours until we arrive at our forest jungle camp. You can help your guide prepare and cook evening’s meal such as: bamboo cooking, rice bamboos, cardamoms tea, or just absorb the ambience deep inside this beautiful jungle.
