Travel by bus From Chiang Mai to Luang Namtha
You will be picked up at 09:00am from your Chiang Mai Accommodation for the 5 hour drive to Chiang Kong. On route the bus will stop at Wat Rong Khun (White Temple) for a 20 minute break from the driving before continuing on to Chiang Kong. At Chiang Kong you will be dropped at The Thai Immigration post for processing out of Thailand, we will then cross to Huay Xai on the Laos side where you will be processed by the Lao Immigration authorities, once all immigration formalities are complete you will board the bus for the 4 hour bus ride to Luang Namtha. The transfer from Chiang Mai to Chiang Kong will be by minibus and the remainder of the journey in Loas to Luang Namtha will be by a big bus.
Important take note:
This programme is not a tour or tour package, it is a transport package and no tour guide is provided. You are required to arrange your own visa (this is available to most nationalities on arrival at the Huay Xai border post and there is no need to make advance arrangements). No visa fees are included or visa help is provided. Travel time is around 12 hours but due to local road conditions the bus in Laos can be many hours late! Please allow for this for your forward planning. Please also note that the bus drops you at a depot about 7km from the city center of Luang Nam Tha. We have had reports from some of clients that when the bus is late there are limited public transport options from the bus station into town and had to charter private transport at around 400 baht.
