Boat trip Luang Namtha to Huay Xai

Luang Namtha is the northeastern most province of Laos, remote and an up-coming eco-tourism destination. It shares a common border with China (north) and Thailand (west). It's still very much a back packers' paradise, and can be reached by road via Luang Prabhang-Oudamxai ( a back breaking ride ), or by air from Vientiane or Luang Prabhang. The province has the largest number of ethnic tribes - 25 in all, most of whom depend on swidden agriculture. The Nam Ha Biodiversity Conservation Area is pristine, and an adventurer's wonderland.... (Note: The Luang Namtha airport is closed October 6, 2006 for about 18 months for an upgrade. The nearest airport is now Oudamxai.)
