Luang Namtha

(600+ reviews from top 10 attractions)
Adventure Nature
The largest city of its province, Luang Namtha rests on the banks of the Nam Tha river, providing a starting point for treks into its surrounding mountain valleys. Divided into the original Old Town and newly built northern quarters, visitors can travel easily between the two via foot or by tuk tuk, with most of the trekking companies nestled within the new side of town. A much-visited stopover on the Laos to China backpacker trail, the city boasts untouched scenery, sprawling rice paddies, and indigenous cultures. Be sure to visit the herbal saunas on your Luang Namtha holiday, a welcome treat after a long day's hike.
