Weather in Khao Lak
Luang Namtha's weather is determined by the surrounding Himalayan foothills. In other words it is mountainous weather. For most of the year, excepting the hot season from March - May, the mornings are overcast and sometimes foggy. This usually burns off as the day wears on. However, this means that one almost never sees a sunrise in Luang Namtha. The sunsets more than make up for that loss. The best time to visit overall is the cool season, between November and February. Don't forget to bring warm clothes as it does get chilly. The rainy season begins in May and ends in October. It is a beautiful time of the year to visit with everything so lush and green. However, it does make travel a bit uncomfortable with muddy roads and land leeches.
What to do?
This province has a picturesque beauty with mountains, and many old temples. Although many temples had been destroyed during the war, there are still some attractions and the old temple noticeably different from other classical temples. Usually tour itinerary includes trekking and hiking trips to the hill tribes (via Muang Sing), an outing to Boten through Laotian hill country and rice fields, the Lao Chinese border checkpoint. South west of Luang Namtha, the still pristine forests of Nam Ha protected area with varieties of wildlife and vegetation can be found.
You can also take a tuk-tuk or bicycle and just go independently to some of the villages which are next to the roads and not in the jungle. They provide you with a not-to-scale map over villages and a nice waterfall. The surroundings are really pretty to cycle about in.
