A few shots from three days in and around Luang Prabang, Laos.
Wanting to get off the tourist trail a little more we took a guided day trip mountain bike ride to visit some minority villages across the Mekong from Luang Prabang. Jewell Travel Laos (who I would do some photography for later) provided a great English speaking guide who was able to give us a customised and highly insightful few hours biking into the hills and checking out villages. They got further back in time the further we went.
Monks pray in one of Luang Prabang’s many wats. A day alone can be spent wandering around the wats in the peninsula area of Luang Prabang. Photography is not a problem if kept discrete and the monks like to take the time to chat.
Cradled by mountains, Luang Prabang was not long ago only reliably accessed by boat on the Mekong River. It’s over these ranges that the next leg of the trip will take us down to Vang Vieng, about three days ride away.
