Laos Photos: Huayxai to Luang Prabang and PakLay on Mekong river - Laos

Ban Pak Beng - Mekong river
Ban Pakbeng (Pak Beng) village, a usual night stop between Huayxai and Luang Prabang for the boat travelers. From Huayxai the boat will first arrive Ban Paktha (Pak Tha) village at the meeting with Nam Tha river which comes down from Luang Namtha. If ones go upstream on Nam Tha river they could reach Luang Namtha in two days. Huayxai to Pakbeng will take somewhere around 8 hours by slow boat. Budget to standard range accommodations are available in Pakbeng.

Some tourists would go to Oudomxai (Muang Xai) from here by road. Oudomxai is a junction of roads in the northern Laos, having road links with Luang Namtha, Phongsali, and Luang Prabang.

Or if you have two or more days, traveling to the south across the river into Xayabouri province will give you some insight into the hilly region bordering Thailand. At Hong Sa, for example, it is possible to overnight in a basic accommodation and do trekking and elephant riding.
