Laos – Getting to know Phongsali

Phongsali province is the least accessible of all, near the source of the Nam Ou River and close to the Chinese border. The region has maintained stronger links with China than with the rest of Lao and visitors are rewarded with a fascinating and unique region, rich with both ethnic tribal minority villagers and descendants of the old Chinese Yunnan traders.

What to do in Phongsali

Trekking to minority villages is the main activity on offer in Phongsali, although some visitors are quite happy just to wander the cobbled backstreets of the enchanting town centre, enjoy the remoteness of the location and the coolness of the breeze.

What’s ‘near’ Phongsali?

Travelling south from Phongsali, you can reach Luang Prabang in a day’s travel, but you should consider breaking the journey at the Muang La Resort near Udomxai or the Riverside Lodge in Nong Khiaw.
