Getting there can be a little confusing depending on where you are coming from.

Whether you’re coming downriver by slow boat from Huay Xai (Bokèo) in northern Laos (across the river from Chiang Khong in northern Thailand); or upriver from Luang Prabang, our overnight kayaking tours all start from Ban Lad Khammune, a remote riverside village nearly 60kms upriver from Luang Prabang.

All slow-boats from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang take 2 days for the 300 kms journey, as river boats cannot cruise the Mekong at night.
