Explore the Countryside on Horseback

Enjoy a unique spin on Luang Prabang sightseeing! On this 3-hour experience, you’ll get familiar with the basics of caring for our horses and take a ride through one of the nearby villages. We’ll begin the day by picking you up from the NamKhan Project office in the Luang Prabang city centre. If you prefer we pick you up from your hotel, please notify us at least 24 hours in advance or when you book the experience. From there, it’s a short drive to the NamKhan Project(opens in a new tab), our 1-hectare property facing the NamKhan River.

After we arrive, we’ll take you on a guided tour of our stables and introduce you to the horses that you’ll be riding. Get familiar with these animals while learning the proper grooming techniques. And don’t fret if you’re completely new to horses—we’ll take a test ride through the riding area to make sure everyone understands the basics.

From there, we’ll depart on our 1-hour trail ride. Depending on your skill level, you and your horse will either walk independently or on a lead with one of our equine experts. Admire the scenic Lao forest on horseback and wave hello to the locals as we stroll through the traditional Lao village of Donkeo. Donkeo is famous for its bamboo basketry workshops, and you may catch a glimpse of weavers hard at work.

Afterwards, we’ll make our way back to the NamKhan Project, where you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy the facilities. We offer several different shuttles(opens in a new tab) for getting back to the city centre.

This experience is perfect for any skill level, and we can personalise the ride to suit your needs. Join us for a fun day with the horses for a different perspective of our beautiful country! There’s a horse and trail for everyone.
