Ban Piang Ngam Community Lodge
The Ban Piang Ngam Community Lodge was built as apart of the UNESCO Nam Ha Ecotourism Project. It was originally intended for the trekkers on the easy overnight trek to stay in. In 2004 the villagers are going to open the lodge up to whomever would like to stay.
The village of Ban Piang Ngam is an easy walk from the Luang Namtha Airport and the Boat Landing Guest House.
The community lodge is simple village house. The villagers are your hosts during your stay and all of your meal are provided for.
