Visit Endangered Gibbons in Northern Laos



One for real wildlife enthusiasts, an exciting new trekking itinerary by Stubborn Mule Travel tracks the elusive crested gibbon in Laos’ remote northern region. The crested gibbon, one of the world’s most endangered primates, still exists in small populations through the dense jungles of northern Laos.

One of the few remaining untouched mountain areas in South East Asia, the area is slowly becoming a trekking hub centred around the tiny town of Vieng Phouka. From here, intrepid adventurers can head for the hills to trek through remote hilltribe villages while enjoying incredible panoramas over the surrounding mountains. At night, sleep in a forest camp, and if you’re lucky, you’ll wake to the call of the crested gibbon.

The new 15-day itinerary through Northern Laos includes a two-night/three-day trek through the Nam Ha National Protected Area, flights from London, all accommodation, internal flights, excursions, and most meals. From GBP1,500 (US$2,497) per person. www.stubbornmuletravel.com
