Nam Et - Phou Louey National Protected Area (NPA) is located in northeast Laos, one of twenty NPAs declared in 1993. The park covers an area of 4,229 square kilometres, as is one of the largest in Laos. The NPA is mostly hilly or mountainous and is the source of many rivers. It is named after its two main features, the Nam Et River and Phou Louey Mountain. The area has primary forest remaining in many areas, a high level of biodiversity, and a number of endangered species including tiger, gaur, Sambar deer, and white-cheeked gibbon. The Nam Nern project has been established in the park to promote sustainable tourism into the region thereby providing local communities with income and motivation to preserve the natural environment.
