Multiethnic Trek-4 Days (Operated by Phongsaly Tourism Office)

3 nights…3 different ethnic groups!
We recommend this trek for sporty and adventurous people, as the 2d day is quite challenging (6,5-7,5h hike). However a horse to carry your luggage can be rent on demand. This is a new trek in a remote area: there is few water in the villages. Villagers might be shy and are not used to photos (especially in the Eupa village). This trek focuses on ethnic diversity rather than jungle.

From BounTai a public tuktuk, where you might share your sit with akha people coming back from the market, takes you on a side road through Pouli and Eupa villages. Then a small trail brings you up to a high village, where the unique Mouchi people (6 villages only in Phongsaly) are your hosts for the night.
On the 2d day, after a long and partly steep hike to an Eupa village, what could be better than the traditional welcoming massage?
On the 3d day, hike down and then up again to a beautifully located Loma village. After lunch, enjoy the relaxed walk and overnight in a Loma village.
The 4th day will bring you back to the road, where you can catch the bus to Phongsaly, Muang Khua or Oudomxay.
