Getting there and away
There's no longer an official bus station in Muong Lay, so wait by the intersection of Highway 12 and the Lan Anh Hotel road for a through bus towards Lai Chau (via Phong To), Dien Bien Phu, Muong Te or Sinh Ho.
Buses towards Lai Chau and Dien Bien Phu start at around 07:30 and peter out after mid- afternoon — it's about 3-3.5 hours from either to Muong Lay. Be prepared to wait a few hours.
Note that there's only one departure a day to Sinh Ho — at around 09:00 — and it gets mighty busy.
