The trail goes up at first, but soon it will level out and you will enjoy a nice walk in the jungle passing huge trees and small streams. You will descend gradually, but on the few steep parts there will be handles to hold on to. Once you have reached the villager’s rice fields, you made it out of the jungle again.
Begin your trek near the Ban Nalan village. You will cross the Nam Tha River by boat to enter the Nam Ha NPA. On your trek you will pass huge trees and, in wet season, a small waterfall. It won’t take long to find out why we call this the bird trail: the birds will serenade you all along the way.
After crossing the river by boat, you will start this challenging trek at Khmu Ban Sop Sim. You will go through a beautiful mix of primary, secondary and bamboo forest with some of the oldest trees in the Nam Ha NPA. In the wet season, this trail is very challenging and slippery.
Hike to our Confluence Camp where you can have a refreshing and rewarding swim before your tuktuk picks you up.
