Trekking in Laos

The treks featured by Ecotourism Laos are mostly operated by provincial guide services and the villagers along the trail, all of who have received training. A significant portion of the trekking fees goes to local guides and villagers for home stays and other hospitality services as well as to support ongoing training, trail and facility maintenance and community development funds.

Resident guides have intimate knowledge of plants, wildlife and local culture, and hiring one through a tour operator or guide service will make your trek much more fulfilling. Booking a trek is the best way to visit a Lao National Protected Area. 

Embark on a journey of a lifetime...take an ecotourism trek through the nature and culture of Laos.
