The National Tourism Authority of the Lao PDR (NTA) is implementing the Nam Ha Ecotourism Project in Luang Namtha Province, with cooperation from the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Department of Protected Areas and Watershed Management and the Ministry of Information and Culture

The project realizes that as a development activity, tourism, and especially cultural and nature tourism can both assist economic development, and stimulate conservation of the cultural and natural assets that make developing countries attractive to international tourists. Because like much of Laos, Luang Namtha possesses a pristine natural environment and rich cultural heritage, the Lao Authorities are actively promoting these assets in an effort to attract visitors.
