Trip note
  • As this tour involves some trekking – guests should be in reasonably good health – and bring walking equipment.
  • There are many picturesque settings visited on our tours in Laos – Be sure to bring your Camera!
  • Guests should be aware there will be visits to various places of worship, which may require respectful dress and behavior. Female visitors must often wear clothes covering much of their skin – and nothing too revealing.
  • A woman of any nationality is not permitted to touch a monk of any age, or even hand something directly to a monk. However striking up a conversation with a monk is fine.
  • Visitors don’t need any special vaccinations to enter Laos, but it’s wise to ensure you are up to date with standard inoculations before you arrive.

Attention: The itinerary may be subject to change due to the unfavorable weather conditions
