Pilgrimage to Laos & Northern Thailand Robert AF Thurman
January 13th – January 23rd, 2018
Laos is one of Asia’s least visited, least changed countries. This once-powerful kingdom, known as Lan Xang (or “Million Elephants”), was founded in the 14th century with the help of the Khmers and went on to become one of the largest kingdoms in Southeast Asia until its demise in the late 19th century. It is a peaceful place, filled with the legendary hospitality, resilience, and friendliness of the Lao people. Laos is Old Asia preserved.
After three days in the bucolic capital of Luang Prabang, we travel two days by boat to the Thai border. Here we have three days to explore the Golden Triangle from our base at the elegant Anantara Golden Triangle Resort and Elephant Camp. Our journey ends with two nights in Thailand’s northern capital, the ancient city of Chiang Mai.
Most mornings you begin your day with a meditation. Each evening your leaders will provide an itinerary update and schedule for the following day. The sightseeing below may be amended based on any special visits we’re able to arrange. Please remember that patience, a sense of humor and a flexible spirit will go a long way on this momentous journey.
