Overlanding is an incredible way to see South East Asia! As the world's leading overlanding operator, Dragoman continues push the boundaries in South-East Asia with our fantastic itineraries throughout the region and running our pioneering trips through Myanmar since 2013, the world's first company to do so. Take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. This short trip starts in the stunning Buddhist town of Luang Prabang in the north of Laos. From here we drive through the beautiful Laotian countryside to Luang Namtha, a wonderfully-located village on the edge of the Nam Tha National Park and a base for a wealth of incredible outdoor activities such as forest treks and boat trips along the spectacular surrounding rivers. We then head over the border into China and overland across the stunning rugged landscapes of the southern province of Yunnan, arriving at the other-worldly natural rock labyrinth of the Shilin Stone Forest.
