Although Oudomxai does not have a national protected area, it does have some of the thickest forests in northern Laos. The province is a good location for visiting Hmong and Khmu villages, and it is also known for its natural hot springs in Muang La and some spectacular waterfalls, most of which are still untouched and undeveloped. A new one-day tour led by local guides to the Nam Kat Waterfall has recently been developed with German technical assistance and can be booked Oudomxai Tourist Information.
