Wild Banana Camp
Wild Banana Camp – Remote Khmu Village Homestay
On this day we will explore an unfrequented trail previously used by hunters. The terrain is more difficult therefore we take a shorter path so you still will have a chance to see some wildlife whilst leisurely hiking amongst the magnificent forest.
Enjoy the exuberant jungle, climbing hills and crossing streams to get to the village where we will stay overnight with a local family in their wooden house. You will have a chance to immerse yourself into a captivating local life. Spend the evening chatting with locals, playing with kids or swimming in the tranquil Nam Ha River.
Remote Khmu Village

We will leave the village with delicious food prepared by our lovely host family, who will accompany us some of the way through the villages’ protected forest area. The jungle on the last day is even more fascinating and beautiful than before. The path is clear and wide enough for you to admire the 70 meter tall trees which many different species of birds and animals inhabit, i.e. squirrels, monkeys, civets etc. You will feel really close to nature as you explore this rich jungle.
