Retreat location

The retreat is located upon the Namkhan River just 15 minutes outside of the ancient capital of Luang Prabang in northern Laos where the Namkhan and Mekong rivers meet. Luang Prabang, UNESCO World Heritage city, is a popular destination for travelers and those looking to experience the natural wonders and traditional culture of Laos. Luang Prabang is well known for its many Buddhist temples and morning almsgiving along with its picturesque old city which displays a mixture of Lao and French style buildings.

Amidst the narrow streets are the food markets selling all produce and displaying a colorful array of fruit and vegetables. The daily night market exhibits beautifully handcrafted items and traditional Lao clothing. It is a beautiful place to visit all year round and has two distinct seasons, rainy season May to October and dry season November to April. November to February is cooler and March and April are hot seasons.

Must visits are Kuang Si Falls and Mount Phousi which gives exceptional views and sunsets. The natural relaxed way of life in Laos is something they like to promote here at the Namkhan Eco-Farm along with nourishing your body with their fresh organic produce which you can see being grown on the farm. The Namkhan Project supports local people by developing and teaching new skills, practicing the English language, and providing employment.
