Nong Kiaw – Ban Pak Bak – Fishing Point – Nong Kiaw.
We depart from Laos Outdoor office at 8:30AM then we take a ride on a fishing boat for around 50 minutes to Ban Pak Bak to pick up the specialist fisherman then continue downriver admiring the scenery of the Nam Ou River, which gets more and more beautiful with limestone cliffs, taking around 20 minutes to get to the fishing start point. The guide will give you some basic techniques of fishing. The fishing continues for about 2 hours until lunch time (Lao style local picnic lunch), then we have time for relaxing and swimming. In the afternoon we change the fishing rods to fishing nets used by the local people – until the late afternoon. Finally we take the motor boat back to Nong Khiaw.
Approximately: 40 minutes transfer by Tuk tuk / 30 minutes Boat / 4 hours fishing.
