What Will You Do

The day begins with some paddling instructions and a safety  briefing before we jump on the river in kayaks. We make our way down the Nam Tha River as it meanders through a section of forest inhabited by a wide variety of  animals including monkeys, barking deer and a large variety of birds! At a small village we cross the border of the Nam Ha Protected Area. From here we ride down sets of small but exciting rapids to our lunch spot on the river bank.

After a delicious Lao picnic by the side of the river and taking some to swim and relax, we head off downstream again. The next stretch of paddling takes us through a Khmu village before ending where the Nam Ha and Nam Tha Rivers meet. From here we will return to Luang Namtha in time for sunset.

Approximately: 5 hours kayaking

Our water policy

Help us to become 100% single use plastic free company!  

We try to avoid plastic as much as possible, that is why we encourage you to bring your own refillable bottle.
We have water refillable station at our office where you can fill up your bottle.  If you don’t have one we sell the 0,75 L Green Discovery aluminium bottles at our sales office.  At the moment we will still need to use plastic bottles in some of our tours but we hope to reduce it as much as possible. Together with The Green Discovery Sustainability Fund we are working on installing water filters in all the villages we are visiting and we hope in the future we will not need to use plastic bottles anymore.

Still not suit you?

We can tailor make your perfect experience
