Leave the city for quiet roads on a full-day, 23-mile (37-kilometer) bike trip from Luang Prabang, and discover gleaming temples and unspoiled scenery. Board a ferry for Ban Xeng Mean, then go village hopping: pedal along quiet tracks to the village of Ban Nakham, the Khmu community of Ban Boum, and remote Ban Jannuau. Sample local delicacies, meet craftsmen and potters, and take in the serenity of life in Laos’ lush and scenic countryside.
Very enjoyable and challenging cycle through the beautiful countryside and villages outside Luang Prabang. Our guide was very good and informative throughout the tour.
Laos is a beautiful country, with beautiful scenery and people, we were eager to experience the real Laos by bicycle alas, for my fit 79 year old husband and I, the bicycle ride was not a suitable way to do that. The bikes themselves had what could best be described as racing seats thin and hard and whilst the bikes are rugged, the tracks are even more so. Given that we had given our ages, I am 55 years old, it would have been a good idea to tailor the ride around that and kept to easy tracks and shorter distance rides. It was 34 degrees with 90 humidity and we were ploughing through mud and rutted roads, it was just no fun in any sense of the word. The good things were to be able to buy school supplies locally and take them to a local school for them to give out as prizes, to sample sticky rice cooked in bamboo and prepared over an open fire, visiting the local paper making village and our guide was at all times helpful and very knowledgeable it may have been a good idea to have another tail end Charlie guide so that they could ensure that if we did come to grief, that help was on hand immediately, bad things have already been listed and don't need to be dwelt upon, next time we will organize a guided motorised trip.
