Daily Itinerary

Day 01 Luang Prabang – Pak Ou – Ban Nagnan – Nong Khiaw

Your motorcycle journey commences in Luang Prabang as you head up north toward Nong Khiaw on extensive dirt and asphalt roads. This is a thrilling ride into the countryside with scenic landscapes. You will get to visit the Pak Ou caves, a historically important site for Buddhism. There are more than a hundred tiny statues in this cave of the Buddha deity. The various Buddha sculptures are in positions of meditation, teaching, peace, rain, and reclining. After the caves, you will ride out on your motorcycle toward Ban Nagnan to observe the continued tradition of silk weaving and silk dying from natural materials. Your night consists of an authentic home stay with a local individual in Ban Nagnan, where you will enjoy freshly cooked Lao food and have a deeper understanding of their unique way of life. If you are not interested in the home stay experience, we can accommodate you in a nearby guest house in Nong Khiaw.

Day 02 Nong Khiaw – Viang Kham – Paxeng – Luang Prabang

Nong Khiaw – Viang Kham – Paxeng – Luang Prabang
The next day of your motorcycle journey involves riding out on scenic mountain ridges from either Ban Nagnan or from Nong Khiaw. You will pass along winding roads near the Nam Ou River. The Nam Ou is one of the most important rivers in Laos because it is the only channel that runs from northernmost province of Phongsaly to Luang Prabang. You will pass by open farmlands and plantations on your journey through villages back to Luang Prabang.

Seasonal Considerations

Due to the nature of adventure tours and the unpredictability of the weather, the itinerary may be changed at the discretion of the guide. If you do not wish to stay overnight in a village, you can stay at a guesthouse in Nong Khiaw alongside the Nam Saung River (additional cost).
