How it began...
Morning Glow mountain trek all started with three locals – Mr. Sang, Mr. Ti and Mr. Bo. The trio all had the same vision in wanting to give back to the local community, especially in the small village of Ban Mouang Keo located in Pak Ou (just an hour drive away from Luang Prabang city). With Sang’s grandmother originating from the village herself, his family ties further inspired him and his fellow partners to seize the opportunity to develop the village. Through the help of the team and others outside the company, the team developed their mission – to preserve and share the culture of their beautiful home with others, side by side with the local community. Through the creation of Morning Glow mountain trek, the team was able to transform their dreams into a reality.
Today, Morning Glow Mountain Trek offers 1 to 3 day tours. Find yourself surrounded by beautiful jungle gardens, cooking up hearty traditional meals and gazing over gorgeous sunsets overviewing the Mekong and Ou Rivers! Spend the night and be blown away by millions of stars and wake up to a breathtaking sea of clouds! The glow of the sunrise at the top of Phouphangam mountain is exactly how ‘Morning Glow’ received its name. The fresh start to a new day and the highlight out of all the experiences that we have to offer for you.
As part of giving back to the community, Morning Glow provides educational experiences for locals too in sharing our knowledge.
We are also striving to integrate ecotourism practices. For us this means providing responsible travel to natural areas, minimising our impact on the environment and providing economic opportunities. We hope that in the long-term we will be able to maintain this approach so that we can sustain the natural environment of Ban Mouang village in the many years to come.
