Bamboo bridge across Nam Khan River | Luang Prabang, Laos

Located close to Wat Siphouthabath, this ordinary yet neatly built bamboo bridge across the Nam Khan river, a major tributary of Mekong River (12th longest river in the world), is aimed mainly at tourists who want to have a glimpse of local way of life. A small fee needs to be paid at the entrance to help the local community maintain this bridge. Though the only activity to do here is presumably cross the bridge, take some photos and come back, it is still recommended as the entrance fee goes directly to the well-being of the locals.

  1. I don’t remember that bridge at LP – how long has it been in existence ? When we stayed in LP we visited the 1000 Buddha caves by boat, and I don’t remember any bridges between LP the caves . . . is it up river?
