This exciting journey takes you from Luang Prabang to Hanoi overland, through a rugged area of spectacular scenery dotted with hill tribe settlements. From Luang Prabang travel by private boat up the Nam Ou to explore a remote river village with an idyllic setting amidst paddy fields and limestone pinnacles. Continue by road to Sam Neua to explore the Vieng Xai cave network, the makeshift headquarters of the Pathet Lao during the "secret war". You will also use Sam Neau as a jumping off point to join an enthralling overnight safari adventure in the Nam Et Phou Louey National Park. Cross the Vietnamese border and head to the comfortable Mai Chau Ecolodge, a great base from which to explore the surrounding minority villages on foot or two wheels. The tour concludes with a stay in the atmospheric Vietnamese capital Hanoi.
