    Hello !

    This is the "Frenchie" again!
    Asking about the possibility to go from Nong Kiau to Phonsavan , through Vieng Tham and Vieng Thom (Road 1C), then Muang Kham (raod 6) and Phonsavan (road 7)? (end of September)
    How long is it? and where can we make a stop? any guest house somewhere?
    Thanks !

    How long is it?

    up to you. should be able to zoom through within 2 days. but a bit strange to take this route & skip Sam Neua & Vieng Xai .

    guesthouses along the way:
    - Vieng Kham
    - Vieng Thong
    - Sam Neua & Vieng Xai (if you detour that way)
    - Nam Neua (junction of Vieng Kham-Sam Neua & Sam Neua-Phonsavan roads)
    - Muang Kham

    It really seems to be a nice interesting area, far away from crowded "ethnic tours"....!
