Visit luang namtha

Nestled in mountainous northern Laos, the provinces of Luang Namtha is one of the centres for Laos' eco-tourism industry. The towns of Muang Sing and Luang Namtha are perhaps the best known, both popular for trekking, rafting, kayaking and mountain biking; and for excursions to visit the various hill tribes, or ethnic minorities who dress distinctly, practice different customs, and go about the same, day-to-day lives, as they have for centuries . Most visitors who come from Thailand, Myanmar and China to Laos use this city as a starting point instead of taking the uncomfortable and crowded boat ride between Luang Prabang and Huay Xai. The town suffered extensive damage during the Vietnam War; however, Luang Namtha today has rebuilt, and positioned itself as the gateway to Laos' northwest, particularly to the Nam Ha National Protected Area.
