hey trekking sounds interesting! when r u going to be in laos? well i would like to join for the trekking thingy though havnt tried before! lol
In Laos, the best place to do trekking is Luang Namtha Province within the Luang Nam Ha Biodiversity Conservation Area. You can take a bus from Luang Prabang to get to Luang Namtha, and there are guest houses which can arrange the treks, through the Ecotourism Center. The Center has trained guides for short, medium and long treks through tribal villages,etc.
In Thailand, many head for Mae Hon Son area (nearer to Chiangmai), but I personally found Kong Chiam area ( from Ubon Ratchatani you get to Pilbun, and take another bus to Kong Chiam) far more exciting for trekking, biking, etc....
