Why Go to Nahm Dong Park?
The new Nahm Dong project is based on eco tourism principles and to former guests of Hillside Lodge known as "The Hidden Waterfall". The Nahm Dong Waterfall is one of the last unexplored places around the UNESCO World Heritage Luang Prabang. The dam at the top was build by French people and it is said it was the first dam ever build in Laos.
For decades it was forgotten until 2013, when Holger from Hillside rediscovered it again and guided his guests up the falls later on.
The aim of the new owners now is to bring the travellers back to the nature, be in touch with the local culture and its traditional way of life.
Only 1Km from Hillside Lodge, Nahm Dong Park is 12 hectares of beautiful plants, lush greenery, exquisite flora and fauna and rushing waters. The area is spotted with cosy picnic places, some under straw huts, some in flower gardens. You could spend an entire day lounging, swimming, trekking and enjoying this natural preserve.
Not only are you immersed with this beautiful greenery that is easy to navigate, but you are also in a self-sustaining destination. Nahm Dong Park is developing programs on organic farming, conservation practices and sustainable development with local communities.
For the active ones amongst you the park offers a variety of activities: zip-lines, cooking classes, mulberry paper production and more.
