Important Additional Trekking Information
Satisfaction and Safety are Luang NamTha Trekking’s key service objectives:
 
  • Which are foremost in our team’s planning and services delivery
  • Your contribution includes your fitness level, suitable clothing and quality footwear
To meet our objectives, we recommend:
 
  • Fitness level-Moderate
    For the biking is moderate, mostly flat and 80% unpaved roads, but short biking up and down of hillocks or off road; For the trekking to reach and experience a variety of visually rewarding landscapes and ecosystems, the trek hike can be strenuous at times. So the tour is best suited to trekkers in sound physical condition. Expect to cycle around 5-6 hours on day 1, walk 5-6 hours on day 2 and a further 6-7 hours on day 3 including ascents and descents Good fitness levels will minimize body stress and enhance your positive trekking experience.
  • Foot protection and safe walking
    A good quality pair of well fitting shoes with effective traction is essential. Either a pair of ‘runners’ or lightweight trekking boots are highly recommended for safety (foot and ankle protection), sureness of travel and overall enjoyment
  • Sun Protection
    A broad brimmed hat is best, with water resistant ‘block out’ (sun screen cream), cool long shirt sleeves, cool trousers, sunglasses
  • Insect protection. For comfort and safety  regarding possible insect bites and stings  we suggest
 
  1. Insect Repellent,
  2. Cool long shirt sleeves, cool trousers, cool socks
  3. (Overnight Mosquito nets are provided for you)
 
  • Rain Wear
    Tropical showers are an integral element of the landscape, so a waterproof layer is essential
  • Evening Wear
    After trekking your body temperature will cool quickly you rest and the night descends, so an additional layer of warm clothing is essential
  • Cold weather
    Night Temperatures in the mountains can drop fairly low during the Lao winter (December to January).  Again, an additional thermal clothing is essential.
