Akha Country Trek-3 Days (Operated by Phongsaly Tourism Office)
Boat and hike to Akha Nuquie territory, a culture of thatched hut-villages on mountain tops and traditionally dressed women, and later back to the world you ... a lot of adventure!
Start this round trip by bus down to Hatsa, from where expedition style boating in the Nam Ou deep valley takes you far out into nature. Hike uphill on a small footpath through the forest and enter Akha Nuquie territory. Overnight in one of these independent people’s village, sitting on a mountain flank with stunning views over the forested mountains and the gorges. In the late afternoon women dressed in their indigo cotton costume and high cap with attached silver coins and colorful embroideries come back from their fields.
The 2d day leads you farer through this Akha territory. Visiting more villages will leave you with a deeper impression of this other world. Enjoy the beautiful footpaths across mountains and forests and this feeling of remoteness.
On the 3d day walk down to the Nam Ou. Take a boat back to Hatsa and enjoy the view of riverine vegetation, virgin forests and mountain rice fields.
