Visiting the The Plain of Jars-Organized Tours
Our Highlights
The 9 Northern Heritage Tours take you much further and add to the experience of the Plain of Jars by leaving the beaten track or including less travelled but not less fascinating destinations without sacrificing visiting the highlights as well. Northern Heritage Tours support community based tourism and help to preserve the heritage of the Plain of Jars. Because there are far less tourists going off the beaten track and because the experiences on a Northern Heritage Tour are more difficult to organise and also because we want to guarantee a fair income for local villagers those tours are slightly more expensive than a standard option – maybe as much as one dinner in your home city. That said, your reward will not be more material luxury – roads are often rougher, homestays in villages are very basic and food is sometimes ‘very local’ – but you will be rewarded with the chance to get to know the real Laos and its people first hand. Northern Heritage Tours offer you the chance to visit the Laos that will inspire you with its hidden stories.

Our ‘battle proven’ 5 standard tours show you the best of the Plain of Jars region. Five well established tours take you to our main attractions by air-conditioned minivan: The Plain of Jars Sites 1, 2 and 3 and the old capital of Muang Khoun as well as Indochina War places like the War Architecture in the Hmong village of Ban Tajok. Standard tours do not require any special physical fitness, stay confidently on the beaten track and guides have a lot of experience doing these tours. A standard tour will give you a good overview of what the Plain of Jars is all about without taking too much of your travel time.
