Oudomxay Province

Oudomxay province is located in the northwest of the country, bordering the province of Phongsali, Luang Prabang, Sainyabuli, Bokeo and Louang Namtha and shares a 15 kilometer border with the autonomous area of Xishuangbanna of the People's Republic of China.

Created in 1976, it was split off from Luang Prabang and in 1987 the capital of the province was moved from Ban Nahin to Muang Xay.

Oudomxay province is set in a mountainous region with altitudes between 300 and 1,800 meters above sea level. Combined with approximately 60 rivers and a thick, untouched rain forest, Oudomxay gives for a spectacular nature experience.

Populated by some 23 ethnic minorities, the province is a treasury of cultural diversity and offers a wide variety of experiences for the intrepid explorer. More than 500 villages are situated in the province almost all of which offers either home stay or guesthouse opportunities.

Transportation is still limited to hiking or 4 wheel drive as the infra structure, especially outside the main cities, are still in development.
