Ban Nahin, also known as 'Ban Khoun Kham' and 'Na Hin village' is a village at route 8 in the Northern part of Khammouane province, in Central Laos.

Ban Nahin has a population of around 3,000, and is located on route 8 between Vieng Kham (West, on route 13 to Vientiane) and Lak Sao (East, to Vietnam border). Ban Nahin is a village in a valley surrounded by limestone mountains, and near the most beautiful mountain view point in Southern half of Laos. Ban Nahin is a good choice for those who are doing the famous Khammouane motorbike tour known as 'The Loop' (starting in Tha Khaek), and a good choice as well for those who want to visit either the miraculous Kong Lor cave (50 km from Nahin) or Tad Namsanam waterfall. The latter one can be reached by a 3 km jungle walk from Nahin. Ban Nahin has dozens of guesthouses and few restaurants that sell more than Lao traditional food. A small dam is being constructed (Nov 2010), which means the foreigners here are a mix of backpacking tourists and employees. Ban Nahin is a holiday destination for Lao tourists as well.
