The Nam Kan National Park

As initially planned with the local authorities, our project area was officially designated National Park in 2008 by the Lao National Assembly. The newly created Nam Kan National Park covers 136.000 ha of mixed deciduous forest. Traces of traditional agriculture can be seen alongside the road running from Thailand to China. Still, there lies one of the most pristine Lao forests, shelter to rare wildlife and Lao’s biggest tree.
