Nam Kading NPA

National Park in Pak Kading

The Nam Kading (Kading River) is undoubtedly the best way into the wilderness that is Nam Kading NPA, where confirmed animal rarities include the elephant, giant muntjac, pygmy slow loris, François' langur, douc langur, gibbon, dhole, Asiatic black bear, tiger and many bird species. As usual in Laos, it is very unlikely that you will actually see any of these. Note that at the time of writing it was very difficult to access the NPA, as the regional government are restricting boat access via the river.
