Nong Khiew mountain village
Scenery and serenity go hand in hand in remote Nong Khiew. This tiny mountain village, also known as Muang Ngoi, is the home for folk surviving on subsistence fishing and farming. They do so amid spectacular limestone outcrops studded with caves and saffron robed monks. Settle in, drink a few drinks and gorge on a satisfying Lao meal, and you might want to throw away your iPod and subsist here too. If only for a little while.
