Kamu Lodge – A Rustic Hideaway19th September 2019
Located along the mighty Mekong's northern reaches, Kamu Lodge is a beautiful eco-lodge engaged in low-impact travel, seeking a balance between tourism and the maintenance of the region's cultural and ethnic heritage. From Luang Prabang, guests can take a two-hour boat trip upstream to get to the lodge.
The lodge sits a mere stone's throw from the Kamu village and blends perfectly with the surroundings so guests can have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the surrounding nature and of the traditional Khmu way of living.
The lodge features 20 freestanding safari tents, connected by a combination of winding dirt paths and board walks. All tents are well designed with private balconies that overlook the forest and river bank.
Dining at Kamu Lodge is an authentic cultural experience in itself. In an open-air stilted pavilion, guests dine as local Kamu villagers frequently do. All meals and soft drinks are well-made with organic ingredients from the area.
Several excellent excursions have been designed to provide insight into the local life, and are available at the lodge. These include rice farming, fishing, gold panning, Laos archery, and many more. Adventurous activities such as trekking to caves and waterfalls and tribal communities are also on offer at the lodge. Staff are vital to the success of the lodge, and have been sourced from local villages. These staff complement the lodge with their warm and friendly personalities as they welcome guests and engage throughout their stay. They will even show you how to find medicinal plants in the forest nearby if you are interested.
Without WIFI or TV, Kamu Lodge offers guests full relaxation and a total escape from the chaos of modern city life.
