In the heart of the Lao jungle, on the banks of the Mekong, Kamu Lodge strikes a delicate balance between tourism and the maintenance of the region's cultural and ethnic heritage. However swift-moving the flow beneath our bluffs, the Lodge is an eddy in the rushing currents of our age.
A place to slow down. Disengage. An opportunity to live as deliberately as Thoreau, if only for a day or two, fronting the essential facts of the natural world. Beyond the confines of a compound made up of mosquito-free safari tents and stilted, thatched pavilions, Lao beckons. Primitive paths lead to remote villages through a wonderland of flora and fauna.
Upriver and down, the allure of Lao looms large, whether you're checking in at the Pak Ou Caves, where pilgrims have placed thousands of Buddhist statues or by some timeless village that looks much the way it did when French explorers first plied these waters in the 1860s. Our full board package features a leisurely return cruise from Luang Prabang to Kamu Lodge.
