NongKhiaw is a village in the LuangPrabang Province of northern Laos. It’s on the Nam Ou River, where tour boats and kayaks travel. Close by, narrow footpaths wind through jungle and ascend steep limestone cliffs for expansive views. ThamPhaThok is a series of limestone caves that served as a shelter during the Second Indochina War. Small villages dot the nearby forested mountains and rice fields.

Nong Khiaw has recently been billed as one of the main destinations to watch in Laos. In years gone by, tourists didn’t pay much attention to this part of the country, but now it is starting to establish itself as somewhere to visit if you want to get out of the main hubs such as Vientiane and Luang Prabang.

As Nong Khiaw is located amidst gorgeous limestone mountains, this is a wonderful spot to visit if you like hiking or if you just want to check out more rural areas of Laos.

If you are planning to visit neighboring Muang Ngoi, then try to also spend a few days in Nong Khiaw on the way over, as there is a lot to see and do here, both in the town proper and in the surrounding villages.

When you visit Nong Khiaw, there are a number of ways that you can experience the gorgeous Nam Ou River that cleaves through the center of town.

One of the most unique however is to sign up for a spot of bamboo rafting which, as the name suggests, means that you get to sit atop a raft made of bamboo which has been lashed together.

You will then get to float down the river and, as the rafts have open sides, enjoy unspoilt views of the surrounding countryside.
