Bokeo Nature Reserve was founded in 2004 with the goal of protecting 123.000 hectares of primary rainforest. This forest is a haven for unique biodiversity, home to tigers, bears, elephants, chimps, buffalo, and other birds and insects.
Bokeo is a huge, beautiful country with interesting tiny cottages perched on the treetops. Visitors to Bokeo will be able to feel the swing moving wires to the treehouses or the unsteadiness on monkey bridges. The primary attraction is the untouched entirely distinct made Bokeo highly appealing to travelers.
A part of Bokeo Nature Reserve is planned for use by people for cultivating and apart for ecotourism.

The Gibbon Experience
The natural beauty of Laos, with its magnificent panoramas and thick tropical rain forests, is one of the main reasons many people visit this mountainous landlocked country. Trekking is the finest way to get out into nature and truly appreciate its vast beauty. Many people visit the villages surrounding Luang Nam Tha, while others travel further away to places like Phongsali and Muang Khua. Those looking for a really one-of-a-kind adventure might check out the Gibbon Experience in the northern hamlet of Huay Xai.
The Gibbon Experience initiative was founded in 2004 with the goal of protecting the forest surrounding Huay Xai from the pressures of poaching, slash and burn agriculture, and logging. This is primarily done by fees collected from tourists who want to get up up and personal with the jungle. A variety of trekking alternatives are given, all of which include overnight accommodations in treehouses and zip-lining, which combine to create an incredible view of the forest through which you are walking.
The Gibbon Express was the name of the journey we took. It has more zip-lining and a lower likelihood of seeing wildlife than other lengthier treks, although none of the hikes guarantee animal encounters.
