Can I enter China from Phongsali?

Welcome to Travelfish!
To my knowledge the only border crossing which is open to tourists is the Boten crossing north of Muang Sing in Luang Nam Tha province.
sorry, hit submit too soon. So from Phongsali you'd need to back-track to Udomxai, then west to LNT and Muang SIng to reach the border.
Hi ... so am I right to say there is no direct rout to Mengla in China even though they are not that far apart? I am thinking of doing Muang Sing-Mengla-Phongsali ...

Three years ago the tourism office in Phongsali was wishing for this border as if it was the holy grail. They were dreaming of an undending line of backpackers carabinered together from Dien Bien Phou to Muang Kua and on up to Boten via Phongsali. They hate being a dead end.
