This family friendly soft adventure tour starts in Luang Prabang where you meet & greet your guide in the morning, at your hotel or selected pick up point.
We take a short TukTuk ride to the That Thong waterfall where we start our soft adventure trek to the hidden valley retreat. Take your time to explore the forest and the rarely visited protected area with your guide on small trails, always the sound of nature surrounding you. After an exciting uphill walk through cascading waterfalls and jungle trails you will meet villagers in the Khamu village.
Take the chance to learn more about the rural life in this small Lao community. After the village visit, we take another short hike through a plateau, rice paddies and agricultural highland farming areas. Around lunch time we will arrive at the small hidden Hillside Resort for a Lao style lunch beside the pool or in the tropical garden.
Take your time to rest in your room or take another short walk to the view point on the hill, where you can see the Mekong and Luang Prabang on a clear day. Dinner is served at the small restaurant or in the lush gardens.

Then you will take a short vehicle through the valley and get dropped off at a Hmong ethnic village. From here we start out for a 3 hour walk to the famous Kuang Si river and waterfalls.
