Orchid trekking in Phou Khao Kway National Park

Orchid trekking in Phou Khao Kway National Park

Visit Khao Kway National Park, home to over 50% of Laos' native wild orchids.

Spend your day with a specialised guide in the Phou Khao Kway National Park, exploring the breathtaking scenery of the region. This trek is a unique opportunity to learn more about the orchids and seek them out in their natural environment.

The tour is very sustainable, with specialist guides originating in the nearby Ban Hatkhai village, keeping the income from guiding in the local area. At the same time, the Orchid trek offers a way to raise environmental and cultural awareness, thereby encouraging orchid preservation and conservation.

In addition to the orchids, you'll see some beautiful waterfalls, rugged mountains, gorges, and sandstone cliffs - and learn about a variety of different plants. Likewise, Phou Khao Kway is home to a diverse animal population - including wild elephants, though you'll be very lucky to spot one!
