Visiting Pu Luong, besides Kho Muong, other must see village is Ban Hieu village. One of the best hiking route in Pu Luong is between these two villages. The hike is a little bit up and down and the scenery changes from mountains and jungle to rice terrace and rice fields. In Thai language, Hieu means protruding promontory. It is famous for Hieu streams which can turn trees into “stone” trees. Actullay, the stream contains large amounts of lime so it calcifies the tree roots beneath the stream bed. Where Hiêu stream pour water on the terraces, the water is quite peaceful, but as the first ascending the slope the greater source, creating strong currents. It is one of the best place for both relaxing and swimming.
Ban Hieu is a favorite place of both locals and visitors and it has been invested with more accommodation rather than homestay of village. The new three bugalow Les Bain De Hieu Ecolodge next to beautiful waterfall is now the best place to stay. It is very peaceful place with nice people, pristine scenery and you can absolutely feel like home when you come here
