Day 01 Boat ride, villages, and the Tadmok waterfall (Snack)
We’ll start with a traditional boat, complete with a roof to shade against the sun and any rain, riding upstream on the Nam Ou for 40 minutes. Surrounded by mountains and passing villages nestled in the forests, you will see Buffalo bathing in the river, people fishing and often children swimming in the river. It is an idyllic location and will give you a sense of peaceful serenity and you enjoy your boat ride.
You will visit the Sopkhong Village, a small Khmu village where you can learn about their way of life. Then we’ll trek through local farmland and rice paddies to the start of the jungle and discover the beautiful limestone Tadmok Waterfall. You can relax and enjoy a refreshing splash in this perfect setting where we will also serve you lunch.
After spending 30-40 minutes here we head back to the village along a small dirt road arriving at the river where we take a 5 minute boat ride to another small Khmu village, Huay Hoy.
We then take the boat for 35 minutes back to Nong Khiaw.
This tour is available in the morning and afternoon.
Bring trekking sandals or walking shoes which can get wet. The walk is easy and suitable for all ages but there is a short walk up some rock steps to the waterfall.
Bring a sun hat, sun cream, mosquito repellent and your swimming costume and towel.
