Nahm Dong Park

Nahm Dong Park is a self-sustaining park teeming with wildlife, located only 10km from Luang Prabang. Different outdoor activities can be pursued here: from zip lining to hiking and trekking, to swimming in the emerald waters of the waterfalls. If you're looking to get fully immersed into nature, take a relaxing stroll and discover the pure natural beauty of the park or have a picnic in a bamboo hut. There are also a viewpoint café and a restaurant offering traditional Lao food. You can get here by tuk-tuk, motorbike, bike, or book the Nahm Dong shuttle.

Do & See

There are a plethora of things to do in Luang Prabang, even if ambling around the city's beautifully preserved Old Town where French colonial buildings blend with secular wooden structures. Some of the highlights include climbing the 355 steps that lead to Phou Si Mountain, crossing the meandering rivers, and splashing in the mesmerising turquoise waters of Kuang Si Waterfalls, its pièce de résistance.
