I am constantly amazed by Luang Namtha. Every direction you look in, life is abundant – spiders, butterflies, dragonflies, caterpillars, beetles, unidentified insects and more are found all the time here. Entomologists flock to Luang Namtha province because it is well known to them that if you want to discover a new species (or ten!), this is the place to come. We’ve met many people here studying various insects and so thought that to illustrate Luang Namtha’s abundance of these cool creatures, we’d upload some photos. These photos were taken over a period of 4 days, we didn’t set out to find cool insects, it just happened that way. Of course they are more prolific in rainy season, which is just coming to an end now by the looks of things, but you can find cool insects and other animals all year round.
