NAM MING & NAM KHAN DISCOVERY
On this trip you get the chance to paddle down two very scenic rivers of southern Luang Prabang Province: the narrow and over-grown Nam Ming which flows into the much wider winding Nam Khan.
 When staying the night in a village, we will be able to get a glimpse into the lives of people in rural Laos.

Option 1: Luang Prabang - Nam Ming - Don Mo - Luang Prabang
We depart from Green Discovery Office in Luang Prabang for a transfer to our kayaking starting point at the village of Ban Nam Ming, about 2 hours drive south of Luang Prabang. The Nam Ming River makes its way through a steep sided forested valley. Its riverbanks are covered with dense forest, often consisting of old trees - the ideal habitat for a wide variety of birds. There are some fun rapids before the Nam Ming feeds into the Nam Khan.
In the afternoon, we get to a beautiful spot with cold springs, perfect for bathing and relaxing. We then spend more time for paddling, passing villages set in a landscape featuring rugged limestone mountains. The trip ends when we reach Ban Done Mo, where a pick-up awaits us for transfer to Luang Prabang.


Option 2: Luang Prabang - Nam Ming - Khon Wai - Xieng Ngeun - Tad Sae - Luang Prabang
