Nong Kiau / Phonsavan

Posted by pimprenelle on 3/4/2010 at 19:53

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

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