If you found the Phou Iu Travel & Ecotours homepage after wading through tons of links to find a unique travel experience in Northern Laos, then you have arrived at the right place. Because Phou Iu Travel & Ecotours is a real treat to those who long for a little retreat in Mother Nature’s lap. Tucked away in little valley at a stone throw away from the Night Market and at five minutes walking distance from the Nam Tha River, the bungalows, unique in their setting, is what you need! Surrounded by verdant scenery and mountains in the mist (during the rainy season) one truly can let go of all the hustle and bustle of traveling of crisscrossing Laos. In 2005 seven bungalows were built called “Phou Iu II Bungalows” the bungalows equally located in Muang Sing. Next the “Phou Iu III Bungalows” were built in 2010 in Luang Namtha. The bungalows are constructed in traditional ethnic group’s style with all modern comforts, they come with comfy beds and bamboo furniture. From your cozy porch you can enjoy the colorful garden, teeming with all sorts of butterflies, and from morning until the evening one can hear all types of birdsong, roosters crowing, the occasional laughter of the children who play by the river or at home. By contrast, during the rainy season the evenings will mesmerize you with the sound of cicadas, frogs, and the sound or the pouring of rain.
