The drive can be challenging in some parts of our journey due to poor road conditions; however, the verdant and rugged mountain scenery combined with the colorful local population makes for a memorable experience. On arrival, we check in at a very simple hotel and take a walk to explore this picturesque hill town. Overnight at Oudomxay.
