We depart from Luang Prabang and drive for around one and a half hours north of Luang Prabang to Ban Pak Chaek village which is the starting point for our trekking. Here after a short trek we cross the Ou River via fishing boat and continue along Nam Chaek stream which we cross several times so be prepared to get wet feet!
