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

To meet our objectives, we recommend:
  • Fitness level-Easy
  Easy walk through fields, forest, etc. on small foot paths
 
  • 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.

  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, additional thermal clothing is essential.
