With a mosaic of ethnic cultures and a topography that lends itself to adrenalised activities, the highlands of Thailand and Laos have long been prime quarry for intrepid adventurers.
And one of Asia’s active tour operators, Indotrek, is inviting travellers to take a walk on the wild side in this beguiling part of Southeast Asia courtesy of a fresh itinerary that links the two nations between Chiang Mai, the capital of northern Thailand, and Luang Prabang, its counterpart in northern Laos.
The new tour unfolds in thrilling fashion amidst incredible natural assets. Northern Thailand and Laos are regarded as being among the region’s visual highlights. Over the course of 13 unforgettable days, guests will plot an energised course through these landscapes between the two urban centres.
Active components of the adventure include trekking, kayaking and cycling with highlights including an ascent of Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest mountain and bike ride through the famous Golden Triangle – the area where the borders of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar converge.
Adam de Lancey, brand manager at Indotrek said: “Our aim is to offer bucket list adventures that allow our guests to really scratch below the surface of our destinations. This programme– along with all our journeys – offers a great blend of unique, one-off experiences in a package that is accessible and fun.”
