Muang Khua Laos


Muang Khua Laos sits on the bank of the picturesque Nam Ou River, near the mouth of the Nam Phak river which comes from the region of Udomxay and Muang La. It is a fairly beautifully located, wuiet and peaceful spot halfway up the river between Nong Khiaw (Nong Kiao) and Hat Sa which links to the town of Phonsali town. The province is called Phongsali and is the less traveled corner of Laos as well as the poorest. High rising mountains, hardly any good road links make thie region one of the “outposts” in northern Laos.

The best way to come to Muang Khua is the Nam Ou river. It provides travelers with a slow opportunity to travel up north. Slow and extremely beautiful with landscapes to enjoy. See the beauty and serenity of the spectacular journey from Nong Kiaw (Nong Kiao) and Hat Sa. Muang Khua town itself is rarely a destination for any travelers. The Akha Community home stay tour & project is a unique voluntourism project in Laos targeting to help to receive more visitors into the region of former opium growing communities who now suffer from poverty. Our Akha experience program in the minority village supports these villagers with direct income through voluntourism activities.

Only very few travelers stay longer than a night or maximum two. Though through the activities of the UNODC and Tiger Trail Outdoor Adventures, Muang Khua is developing more products and activities which will benefit the region. According to the guidelines of “Fair Trek” these activities will maybe help visitors to stay a bit longer in the region.
