On these trip to Laos we drive to eastern Thailand to cross the border in middle Laos so we stay for some days in Phu Pan Sakon Nakhon province.
After some days in Phu Pan we cross the border to Laos and stay some day’s in Khammouan province. Our first camp was a old roof surrounded by limestone mountain but the next days was to heavy rain and we have to change the place so we stay a little bit higher on a mountain pass under a bigger roof with very nice view over the limestone mountain.
Then we drive to northern Laos and stay there near Phu Khun Louang Prabang province about 1200 meter high.
After some days we drive back to Thailand and cross the border in northern Laos but we have to cross the Mekong river by a ferry boot and after them there was only a small dirty mountain road back to Thailand and we have to spend the whole day on these road for only 150 km so we spend the last night in Laos near Hongsa on these mountain pass about 1300 meter high.
On next morning after the night in the mountains of Hongsa we cross the border to Thailand and stay for some days in Ban Phi, Nan province. The first day was a short heavy storm and some trees falling down of the road. On a river we see many butterflies sitting down to get some minerals from the soil. At nighttime some nice Sphingidae coming to the light trap.
