Fodor's Expert Review Nam Ha Ecotourism
Luang Nam Tha Town/Village
This ecotourism program, a model for Southeast Asia, actively encourages the involvement of local communities in the development and management of tourism policies. You can join a two- or three-day trek through the Nam Ha Protected Area, which provides some excellent opportunities for communing with nature, having outdoor adventures, and visiting ethnic minorities (Khamu, Akha, Lanten, and Yao tribes live in the dense forest). The Boat Landing Guesthouse, Forest Retreat Laos, and Green Discovery Laos (all in Luang Nam Tha) conduct or arrange tours.
