And one of Asia’s leading active tour operators, Indotrek, invites travellers to take a walk on the wild side in this beguiling part of Southeast Asia courtesy of a fresh itinerary that links the two nations between Chiang Mai, the capital of Northern Thailand, and Luang Prabang, its counterpart in northern Laos.
The new tour unfolds in thrilling fashion amidst incredible natural assets. Northern Thailand and Laos are regarded as being among the region’s visual highlights.
Over the course of 13 unforgettable days, guests will plot an energised course through these landscapes between the two urban centres.
Active components of the adventure include trekking, kayaking and cycling with highlights including an ascent of Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest mountain and bike ride through the famous Golden Triangle – the area where the borders of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar converge.
Nature lovers will appreciate the chance to trek through the Lao jungle with rescued elephants as their companions. Cultural enrichment, meanwhile, comes via experiences such as homestays in minority villages and encounters with saffron-robed monks.
