Laos is home to a mosaic of 130 traditional ethnic tribes, some of them only have a few hundred and on the verge of disappearing completely. Muang La Lodge has designed some excursions to approach some tribes in their villages and observe their way of life. Originating from Yunnan or Tibet, these tribes of "hunter-gatherers" are called the "people of heaven" by the Lao people living on the plains. Their villages are often perched above 1,000m above sea level, in the mountains: Ikhos, Akha or Hmong minorities.

Your Host & The Team

“2000年的时候,老挝还刚刚向游客开放,我开始在老挝北部寻找最纯正的山村景色。我的梦想是建造配有豪华帐篷的野营地,就像南非的那种。最后我建造了4个营地,每个都有着令人惊叹的美景。几年后我决定一个河边的木屋:芒拉小屋。这就是芒拉小屋诞生的情景。现在芒拉小屋成为了Secret Retreats所有纯正亚洲酒店的一员。”

We Care

This resort is dedicated to improving education at Ban Por, an isolated Hmong village at the top of the mountain, where teaching and learning conditions are difficult. So far, they have built two schools. One is for the first level (6-7 years old) and has 30 students. The second school, at the entrance of the village, has approximately 70 students ages 7 to 11.

Muang La’s education initiative originated when two

guests from Luxembourg expressed their desire to improve the local school teaching/learning practices. Both the World Food Program, CCL (Comite de Cooperation du Laos) and a French organisation called Un Avenir Pour Demain actively support this project. Muang La’s future plan is to expand the school and employ more teachers.

“Set next to a river with a hot spring, in a very small village, this 9 room lodge showcases local architecture, and is the starting point for visiting the nearby hills and hilltribes.”

Kim, the discoverer.
