I have been told there are some great ones in the area and I would like to do a little research before arriving so I don't miss out.
Anyone have any recommendations?
I haven't traveled there....yet, but a friend said they went through - www.ecotourismlaos.com/activities/act_trekking.htm - as a starting point.
Some options around Savannakeht
- Dong Na Tad Forest Treks & Homestays - http://www.ecotourismlaos.com/activities/dongnatan_trk.htm
- Trekking in Dong Phou Vieng NPA - http://www.ecotourismlaos.com/activities/dongphouvieng_trk.htm
- Phou Xang Hae 5-Day Trek - http://www.ecotourismlaos.com/activities/puxanghae_trk.htm
I'm not sure if they work out of this region, but I've had experience with http://www.buffalotours.com in the past working on a documentary and they're a top company with an excellent approach to responsible tourism. One worth contacting as part of your research.
