About Pakbeng

Welcome to Pakbeng, a little town at the door of the Golden Triangle, close to the Thai border and Luang Prabang.

Oudomxay Province is known as the “Heart of Northern Laos” because of it’s position as being the crossroads province for both road-based and water-based travel for the provinces north of Luang Prabang. Pak Beng District is one of three districts to be designated as tourism focal district in Oudomxay Province. The Pak Beng District has a population of more than 28,000 people; three main ethnic groups make up this population, they are Khmu, Hmong, and Lao Loum. Notice that nearly 100% (99.36% to be precise) of the land is classified as mountains.

An hidden natural intouched gem, where tourists pass by in 1 night, and that deserve much more. After couple of kilometers out of village, discover a real way of life, where Lao lives pacefully out of the big Maelström.
