Phongsali Travel Guide

Phongsali is one of the most fascinating and remote towns in Laos, which was strongly influenced by China and enclosed three sides by China and Vietnam and cut off to overland travel from Oudom Xai to the south. The two main ethnic groups are Phou Noy in traditional white leggings and Chinese Ho, ancestors of the old Yunnan traders, who wear baggy trousers.
What to do?
Wandering the streets during the day, the predominant sounds are of birds and rushing water. As dusk falls, the sounds of playing children mix with farmyard noises, reinforcing the rural feel of the place. Trekking trips allow you to explore the countryside, seeing a special part of the country that is rarely visited. Not many international travellers come to Phongsali due to the journey, either by road from Oudom Xai or by river from Muang Khua is long and hard.
Getting there
Phongsali can be reached by road and river.
From Oudom Xai it is possible to travel by road as far as Muang Khua in southern Phongsali then continue from Muangkhua by boat.
From Luang Nam Tha it is possible to travel by road via Muangla (Yunnan province, China).
From Luang Prabang it is possible through the Nam Ou River straight north into the heart of Phongsali.
Another way, you can travel by Lao Aviation, which provides two flights per week.
Travel Tips
Phongsali has a year round cool climate with temperatures as low as 5 degrees Celsius at night. Rain can be heavy - bring a jacket and warm clothes.
