A mix of Wats and Lao Lao:   Trekking an excellent experience:
Lao Lao making   Trekking in Muang Khua
Now the only wats (temples) in Muang Khua, built in 1979, is next to this site. It's interesting more for the history of the area than for any aesthetic reasons. A village across the Nam Ou produces Lao Lao, the local rice whisky.   Foreigners rarely visit these villages and they are delighted to welcome strangers with true Lao hospitality. A range of ethnic groups live in the area "Khamu, Akha, Tai Dam" but not nearly as many as live further north in Phongsali or to the west in Muang Sing and Luang Namtha.
