Akha-Life Trek-2 Days (Operated by Phongsaly Tourism Office)

A unique opportunity to explore the mountain-jungle and discover the Akha culture and farming.
On the first day, after a snack in a quiet Phunoy village, climb one of the highest mountain ridges in the area and enjoy your lunch watching the breathtaking view of endless mountain landscape. Descend through the jungle and its wild orchids and overnight in an Akha Puxo village, sitting on a hill offering nice views on the forested mountains. Married women wear self-crafted indigo colored traditional dress with a trapeze-like cap.

On the second day, get a deeper insight into local culture: follow Akha women to their upland fields and gather vegetables and herbs with them. Back to the village, cook and eat lunch together before enjoying a relaxed hike through a valley with rice paddies.
