This is an easy walking tour suitable for all ages and great if you have limited time one morning or afternoon in the heart of Nong Khiaw. We will have a short tuk tuk ride and walk to caves that were used by the Laos communist party during the Second Indochina War to shelter from bombs dropped in the area. The guide will walk you through the rice fields that sustain the local families working their farms and tending their animals in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. We will have lunch in a magnificent forest hut before trekking out.
