Outdoor Adventures from Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang is the place to see holy temples, golden gongs, and beautiful Buddhas, but there’s plenty of adventure for the outdoor enthusiast as well. From cruising the mighty Mekong River to trekking through the jungle to remote villages, these are some of our favorite outdoor activities.

Hiking and Trekking
Exploring the jungles of Laos on foot gives travelers the opportunity to explore the jungle and local ethnic villages in a more intimate way. Take it easy with a half-day jungle trek to a Khmu village and Tad Sae Waterfall, or challenge yourself with a two-day exploration of the jungle trails just beyond the borders of the UNESCO World Heritage-protected town. 

Boat Trips
No trip to Luang Prabang would be complete without a boat trip along the Mekong River. One of the most popular options is to cruise to the Pak Ou Caves to see the thousands of gilded Buddha statues within. These tours often include a stop at Kuang Si Falls. Other options include a sunset cruise or a dinner cruise with a traditional Lao dance performance.

Cycling 
Hop on the saddle of a bicycle and peddle the quiet roads of the Northern Laos countryside. Guided bike tours take visitors through the region’s unspoiled scenery, past temples and rural villages, stopping to chat with local artists and sample regional delicacies along the way. Those looking for a challenge can opt to mountain bike along the banks of the Nam Khan River to the spectacular Tad Sae waterfall. Some full day tours combine mountain biking and kayaking along the river.
