Land of Million Elephants

Beautiful and desolate, breath taking and dangerous, the road to Luang Prabang is one of the most enthralling overland journeys in Asia. Yes, there are other roads with settings as magnificent, which are longer and perhaps as exciting. But the road to Luang Prabang is an immersion into the moods of Laos, a migration through life with its startlingly open people. It is an experience in timelessness.
