Just got information that the new concrete bridge (120 meter long and 5 meter wide)over the Luang Namtha has been completed and will be open soon. Although I am not 100% sure I assume that this concrete bridge will replace the 97 meter long bamboo bridge shown in the posts by Mark Rossi and Rex

Also heard some rumors (not confirmed yet) that the road from Mueang Houn to Mueang Nalea has now been completed so the boat trip described below by Mark Rossi is no longer required.

Things are sure changing in a hurry.

DirtHonk and myself came through here 2 days ago.

Looking towards Nale.
