Tour Overview

Day 1

Day 1: LUANG PRABANG MOTORCYCLE TOURS TO XIENG HONE(180 KM)

Topic: High mountains ridges ride for the first 130 km Description: Head west on route No 1A on the muddy and bumpy dirt road then we take a ferry across the Mekong River to Sayabury Province where we will have lunch in the provincial capital. We will then need all our off-road riding skills to explore the Laotian jungle wilderness, along 95 km of some of the most challenging roads in northern Laos. The ride to Hongsa has a very rugged landscape with forested mountains, and it is known for the production of rice, cotton, peanuts, sesame, maize and oranges. Teak forests cover large parts of the province and have Elephant festival during February. Night: Really local Lao Guest-house
Day 2

Day 2: XIENG HONE MOTORCYCLE TOURS TO HUAY XAI (180 KM)

Topic: Dirt ride around White Elephant Valley Description: Pray to God that it doesn’t rain so that we eat dust today instead of mud for the 93 km ride along the Thai border to the Mekong River. There we take a boat and enjoy our trip up to Houay Say. You may be the only people around and if you are lucky you will meet local Mahout and see elephants. Arrive at Houay Say in the late afternoon, the beautiful border crossing town located on the Laos side of the Mekong River. Night: Charming Guest-house.
Day 3

Day 3: HUAY XAI MOTORBIKE TOURS TO GOLDEN TRIANGLE – MUONG MEUNG (170 KM)

Topic: Golden triangle immersion Description: Get ready to head up the Mekong to the famous Golden Triangle. This region once grew thousands of acres of opium poppies. See the small and quiet villages of Akha and Yao ethnic minorities. Our ride will pass by Sop Roak – village of the Akha people on the Thai Mekong Riverbank. At the end of the trail we will take the single track along Mekong river to Muang Meung. Night: Local Guest-house in the center of the village.
Day 4

Day 4: MUONG MEUNG MOTORCYCLE TOURS TO NAM HA NATIONAL PARK – LUANG NAMTHA (150 KM)

Topic: Nam Ha National Park ride Description: It is hard to say farewell to this part of riding along the Mekong. Wake up early if you do not want to miss the sunrise on the river. Enjoy this part until we head Xieng Kok. On this peaceful stretch of road, the biggest hazards you are likely to see on the road are the cows and chickens who roam freely around the area! We will drive through the beautiful rain forest to Luang Namtha. Along the way, we will have a chance to visit local hill-tribe villages of Akha, Hmong, Tai Dam, Lu people. Our lunch will be prepared for road-stop with some local traditional stuffs: sticky rice & dried beef. Night: Nice Guest house
Day 5

Day 5: LUANG NAM THA – REST DAY (MASSAGE, VISIT AROUND, RELAXING)

Today, you’ll be at leisure to refresh yourself after a quite long tough trip Overnight at hotel in Luang Nam Tha.
Day 6

Day 6: LUANG NAM THA MOTORCYCLE TOURS TO NA MOR – BOUN TAI. 130 KM

Description: A long and exceptional riding day through a wide variety of road surfaces, none of it smooth, and we will pass only a couple of vehicles per hour at the most. The bad road conditions are not terribly difficult, but it will force us to keep our speed down to avoid frame-bending holes. This road was built by the Chinese government in the ’60s and has barely been maintained since then. Much of the day we ride through primary forest-clad mountains and we will pass several extremely primitive hill tribe villages where women still roam around topless. In the town of Boun Tai, we will explore the remnants of an old French Legionnaire fort in a state of total disrepair. Night: Local Hotel
Day 7

Day 7: BOUN TAI MOTORCYCLE TOURS TO MUANG KHOUA – NONG KHIAW. 110 KM + 4H BOAT TRIP

Topic: 4 hours boat cruise downstream to Nong Khiaw Description: That is interesting to see the market in the morning in Boun Tai. There are of goods coming up to the local trading square in the town center. Today is an easy day, as we have 70 km on bumpy road…only. We will ride through many Lao Thung villages – home of mid-land ethnic groups. Take a rare good paved road from intersection to Muang Khua where we enter our long-tail boat. On our 4 hours boat cruise downstream to Nong Khiaw we see great landscapes and river sceneries and explore the natural way of life along the river banks. Most of rivers in Laos are just…rough and sitting in boat makes same feeling with riding on winding road. Night: Local bungalow on the Nam Ou River
Day 8

Day 8: NONG KHIAW MOTORCYCLE TOURS TO PAK XENG – LUANG PRABANG. 230 KM

Topic: Hmong trail discovery ride Description: The last day requires a good physical condition, but in exchange for a fabulous day following a long way in the middle of mountains. Looking forward meets two different hill-tribe, Khamu, and Hmong people. The Khamu live in mid-mountain while the Hmong live in isolated mountain really far from the world that we know. The entire day will be almost 230 km of which 130 km are to slalom between mid-mountain and high mountain villages on the ridges. The finish line is finally the World Heritage town of Luang Prabang where a well-deserved beer Lao will wait for us in town! A Tuk-Tuk will send you back to your hotel. "This trip has been studied to mix up motorbiking with Lao culture, waterfalls, elephant interactions & more. Accommodations will range from simple guest-houses & good wooden bungalows to nice hotels. All tours are created and organized at their most qualitative levels but personalization is of course possible such as changing hotel standards or modifying the activity list. In the end, your only expenses will be your food and drinks. It costs about 2$ for a noodle soup or a drink and 5$ for a proper diner. So in case of you would like to make any changes or suppress some activities, let us know."
