Nahm Dong Park Reviews
Nous avons simplement baladé dans ce parc sans faire les activités, très reposant très beau, c'est un cadre magnifique pour 20 000 kips(2 euros).A une petite demi heure de Luang prabang, par contre c'... more »We simply strolled through this park without doing the activities, very relaxing very beautiful, it's a beautiful setting for 20,000 kips (2 euros). A little half an hour from Luang prabang, on the other hand it is a bumpy way to get there.
Der weg dahin ist bereits abenteuerlich, da nach halbem Weg nur noch ein Schotterweg existiert, ist aber nicht schlimm. Der Park ist sehr natürlich und schön gestaltet und es hat überall viele kleine ... more »The way there is already adventurous, since after half the way there is only one gravel road, but is not bad. The park is very natural and beautifully designed and there are many small bamboo huts everywhere where you can take a break and relax. Make sure to zipline, the tree top bridge you can save yourself, not so spectacular. Price completely legitimate (20 dollars for entry,zipline and bridges). At the View point you have a very nice view over the park and you can enjoy the tranquility, because there are not many tourists, at least not when I was there.
It is, what the name says: a park. Sadly I thought it was more of a natural national park. What I came across was an artificial park, that's still - what seems to be - under construction at a lot of points. Entry fee is only 20.000 Kip, so it's alright, but if you want to do something more special like zip lining you'll pay at least 140.000 Kip. The biggest problem for me was getting lost all the time. The map they give you is no help at all and I'm considered to have a very good orientation, still I ran around in circles quite often. There are several points where a map is shown as well, but they didn't pin where you were standing right now, so they weren't helpful. The park looks a lot bigger on the map than it actually is. Their 45 minutes hike was 20 minutes for me. During march most of the big waterfalls were small or completely dry. Don't get me wrong. There were some really nice spots and once everything is green and finished (there was a lot of plain soil around, making it look rather boring) I think it has nice potential. You can easily find spots to relax and have a good time or make some decent photos. But it just wasn't worth the struggle to get there compared to the other places around Luang Prabang. The last 5 kilometers to the park are extremely difficult on motorbike. Some structural work for the road should be considered.
This park seems to be still underestimated. When we arrived at 11am only two other guest where there. So we had the whole park for us. At the first glance it seemed to be another park where you can book expensive tours and workshops. So we decided to do a tour on our own and just paid the entrance fee (20.000 Kip pP). And it was a very good decision! It’s a lovely place with some very beautiful short routes throughout some really nice prepared gardens and paths. A small river is running through it which you can follow. A lot of butterflies and a bee hive you can find. A restaurant and Café is also available inside. The street to the park is quite bumpy and it takes 30-40min to go there from Luang Prabang. It’s worth to go there.
