Day 1: Luang Prabang - Xieng Khouang (L)
We start early this morning, around 8am for the drive to Xieng Khouang, famous for the ‘Plain of Jars’. The road follows a twisty mountain route, and we make our first stop at Houi Hei, which offers great views of the surrounding mountains. We then continue Ban Kiu Maknao 2, a Khmu Village to explore, before arriving in Phou Khoun. We continue on the road into Xieng Khouang province, reaching our highest altitude of the day 1,500m above sea level, just after Phou Khoun. We have time to make a stop at Ban Son Boom, a Hmong village. Our final stops of the day are a reminder that this region played a major part during the Vietnam War – as we visit a hidden Buddha Cave, that served as an army hospital during the war and our final stop of the day.
Day 2: Xieng Khouang (B, L)
This morning you will be met at your hotel by our local English speaking guide to begin your days sightseeing. The Plain of Jars is a large group of historic cultural sites in Laos containing thousands of stone jars, which lie scattered throughout the Xieng Khounag plain in the Laotian Highlands at the northern end of the Annamese Cordilleram, the principle mountain range of Indochina. Archaeologists believe that the jars were used 1,500-2,000 years ago by an ancient Mon-Khmer race whose culture now is totally unknown. There are a total of more than 400 sites across the whole plain of Jars that centres on the area of Xieng Khouang. The jars appear to be laid in a linear path that was probably a trade route. Then visit Mulberry Farm specialising in the production of naturally-dyed, handmade Lao silk. Visit a local market before being transferred to Xieng Khouang Airport for your onward departure.
