Located in the beautiful Luang Prabang, Shangri-Laos Classic Explorer Camp & Expedition provides a special travel idea to re-live the adventures of Dr. P. Neis, a historic French explorer from the 19th century. Re-trace his footsteps along the streams and mysterious dense jungles in his original and authentic style whilst staying in luxury tents with breathtaking views just as he did in 1883.
The Shangri-Lao Classic Explorer Camp is located just 3 km downstream from Xieng Lom Village and it is believed that this location is the same that Dr. Neis chose for his own camp. Their expeditions from the Shangri-Lao Classic Explorer Camp to the Nam Khan River, or the Shangri Khot's camp, follow the same route through the Huay Sae stream that Dr. Neis explored over 130 years ago.
By night the sounds of the Lao jungle are not like those of other places. A whole range of sounds fills the night here and adds to its mystery. "A spell in a Laotian jungle camp, with the sounds of the nature around you and with canvass walls, has an effect on all our senses. Free from the clutter of our normal life, our hearing goes on alert. We are not used to the trumpeting of the elephant, nor the deep silence that can fall here in such dark nights." - said Dr. Neil.
The style of management at Shangri-Lao is a unique one. There is no big business chain or some fast return on investment with many investors squeezing the management for a quick return of their investment. Their management is able to respect the behavior and style of the unique nature of the inhabitants of Laos. This is a calm approach to life, less driven to making money and the pressures this brings, but more to look at enjoying their daily life, always looking for a chance to smile, laugh and enjoy with others!
