How to Reach nong khiaw

Travel Options

By Sea

A few years ago the only way to get into this town was via boating through the river, the scenic beauty of the commute is unmatchable and truly mesmerizing. This boat leaves from the neighbouring Luang Prabang or from Muang Khua close to the Vietnamese border. Unfortunately the boat way is no longer available for travelling up to Nong Khiaw due to the recent construction of a dam. But if still want to indulge in the scenic views the river-way has to offer, you can chose to take a boat close to the dam at the south of Nong Khiaw, which takes about two hours. From there you can board a minivan to reach the main town.

Transportation in nong khiaw

By Road

By road one can come from Pak Mong leading up to Hat Sao. Another way to get into the village of Nong Khiaw is by taking a bus ride from Udomxay which runs three times daily according to schedule. But it might run late (as is most of the times) or may not be running at all during the low season where the numbers of passengers are few. While for the bus rides from Luang Prabang and or Vang Vieng one can negotiate the fare prices to quite an extent and then get off at Pak Mong from where the highway turns south. From here you can choose to take a tuk tuk to drive you till Nong Khiaw in an hour or so. It should cost about 30,000 Kip per head on the tuk tuk to get to Nong Khiaw.
