Nam Et Phou Louey Trek
Take on a challenging trek in one of the most pristine jungles in Laos.
Located in northeast Laos, Nam Et - Phou Louey National Protected Area (NEPL-NPA) is 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. Named after its two main features, the Nam Et River and Phou Louey Mountain, the NPA is mostly hilly or mountainous and is the source of many rivers. It is.
Here there are options for a one, two or five night challenging trek within the NPA and up to the summit of Phou Louey the "Forever Mountain" (Elev. 2257m) - the third highest peak in Laos and one of the few cloud forests in the region. This trek through the evergreen forest includes a homestay in a Khmu village at the start of the tour, followed by a camping in jungle huts inside the protected area, and The Nests and wildlife observation tower, hoping to get a glimpse of some of endangered species that call the NEPL NPA home including tiger, gaur, Sambar deer, and white-cheeked gibbon.
Please be aware that this has been found to be a very challenging trek. It involves full days of climbing up hills and other difficulties associated with thick jungle. Please sign up for this tour only if you have experience with trekking and if you are in a good level of physical fitness.
