Aerial view of Xieng Ngeun located south of Luang Prabang on the left bank of the Nam Khan River. Note the airstrip on the lower right and the circular military outpost above it. The zigzagging road on the right is Route 13 heading south towards the Hmong villages of Kio Nya and Kiocacham. Route 13 heads north toward Luang Prabang passing through Xieng Ngeun between the airstrip and the military outpost. The barren hillsides have been cleared for swidden farming.
