Laos, with the motto ‘peace, independence, democracy, unity, and prosperity,’ is perhaps the least explored destination in Southeast Asia. 

Nestled in the heart of the Indochinese peninsula, the Lao People's Democratic Republic is a small, mountainous land covering 236,800 km² and home to 5.3 million inhabitants, of which 85% reside in rural areas. With nearly 40% of its territory covered in forest, Laos is the only country in the region supporting thriving populations of both wild and domestic elephants.

Widely known as the ‘land of a million elephants,’ Laos offers an authentic and enriching travel experience, set amidst an aura of understated charm. 

Luang Prabang, in particular, continues to enchant visitors with its legendary allure, French colonial architecture, and the traditional settlements of the Mong and Khmu tribes. 

This ancient city was the royal capital of Lan Xang Kingdom for centuries until 1975. 

Notably, Luang Prabang is renowned for its numerous Buddhist temples, including the 16th-century Wat Xieng Thong and Wat Mai, the former residence of the Lao Buddhist community's supreme leader.

Nestled between the Mekong and the Nam Khan rivers, Luang Prabang exudes a tranquil ambiance, offering a serene escape amidst the unhurried flow of its waters.

Luang Prabang

One word that encapsulates the essence of Laos is ‘Sabaïdee’ - The greeting reflects the warm and welcoming nature of the Laotian people. 

Luang Prabang is home to 33 temples, dotted across its landscape, signifying the deep spiritual roots. 

People of different beliefs coexist peacefully, and it's not uncommon to witness Buddhist monks, animist rituals, and Christian churches existing side by side in this UNESCO World Heritage site.

The largest ethnic group in Luang Prabang is ‘Khmu’ making up around 44% of its population. 

Ethnic groups have historically lived off the land, engaging in subsistence agricultural practices and utilising the natural resources around them. 

The unexplored lands of Laos have provided a nurturing environment for these communities, allowing them to preserve their traditional ways of life and maintain a strong connection to the natural world.

Support for the Khmu Villages

Every Excursion = A Contribution. 

On a monthly basis, we engage with the chief of the village to assess the needs of the village, with a particular focus on supporting the children of Laos by supplying clothing and essential school items such as notebooks and pens along with other educational material. We strive to make a meaningful and sustainable impact in enhancing the learning environment for under privileged families.
