DAY 1: LUANG PRABANG TO CAVES AND VIENG THONG ( L , D )
8:30 AM Pick you up from your hotel, We will transfer our off city and take a boat to visit about 1000 Buddha-images are waiting for you on the side of the Mekong. ThamThing and Tham Phoum-cave is the host of those unbelievably gifted express of Laotian art and religion… Then we will hit the road for some decent dirt road riding in eastern direction through mountains, villages and great landscapes.,,Some hours later, we will have lunch in a small village along the way. After another 60k’s we will reach our destination for today…and surely with some pain in the ass…The small place of Vieng Thong is quiet and remote enough to hang out…the hot springs will help to release our exhausted bums in the hot water. Night in a basic guesthouse in town.
DAY 2: VIENG THONG TO PHOULAO AND SAM NUEA TO VIENG XAY (B, L , D )
After an early start, we drive through amazing landscapes and through some quite pristine forest area…where tourists hardly ever venture!! The first stopover is Phoulao, well known for the menhirs in its stone garden and ancient relict of the earliest civilization in this region . On our stopover in Sam Nuea, we can have our lunch break (a bit later than normal) and can walk around the city to stretch our feet. The countryside around Sam Neua is blessed with high mountains and some great limestone formations. It will pay us back for the fatiguing street we have managed to travel so far!,,Leaving Sam Nuea behind, we will reach Vieng Xay, the birthplace of the Laotian republic. This little sleepy town has been very important in the last Indochina-war because of the former headquarters of the Pathet-Lao-Revolutionaries. The Lao revolutionaries could hide before the constant bombings of the US air force. The Lao republic was born here…in the midst of this amazing and fascinating landscape which we will explore. A few hundred caves were counted here and many of them were inhabited during the war. Time to learn about history! Night in Vieng Xay.
DAY 3: VIENG XAY TO THAM PIEW CAVE THEN TO PHONSAVANH ( B, L , D )
A short tour around the caves will introduce us to North Laos .The trouble history of Laos during the sixties and seventies. Also, we will show you some villages beside the road to have a better understanding of land and culture. After lunch, we will discover ThamPiew-cave. In fact: a very sad place, because during the war there were more than 400 people killed in an American attack. Also this side everybody should see, learn to avoid such “events” in the future. Night in small market town along the way. Night in Phonsavanh
DAY 4 : PHONSAVANH TO PLAIN OF JARS and TO XAISOMBOUNE (B, L , D )
Nobody really knows where the jars which we visit today actually came from…and what were the used for. Some secrets will remain even we don’t know. This day we will spend visiting a great highland landscape scattered with mysterious jars, bigger than those in a modern factory. They are big and old and amazing sight and still a miracle! Scattered around the jars are still a lot of bombs a UXO, unexploded ordnance, a “gift” of the Americans during the last war.,,So stay on the track!!! Another short trip leads us out to the old capital of this province which also was destroyed by bombers during the early seventies. The evening we have time to hang out in Phonsavanh town. Night in Phonsavanh.
