    I want to spend 2 nights, 3 days learning 'jungle survival tips'. Im in Luang Prabang now but will travel to wherever someone can hook me up with a contact.

    I don't mind how hard it is, in fact the harder the better.

    Can anyone help me out ?

    Good luck. I've never heard where you can do survival training outside of the military environment.

    I'm sure the trekking guides at Phou Khao Kwai (about 90 km from Vientiane) could help you out, they've been living in the jungle/rainforest for years and one of my guests recently went out with them for a few days and slept in a tent, ate "jungle food" etc.

    You can ring and ask Boun Sanong on 020 220 8286 (inside Laos) +856 20 220 8286 (outside Laos). He's our contact at Ban Na, the village which organises the treks. I don't know if he speaks English but I'm sure they'll be someone there who does.
