Tour Code :  AELAO_NT08
Tour length :  5 days - 4 nights
Starts from :  PAKSE

Transport :  Bus + Boat
Price : 620 USD

Day 1: Pakse – Boloven Plateau – Elephant Camp – Tad Fane Waterfall:
This morning, our local representative will meet you at Pakse airport or at the border crossing at Chong Mek, where you will pass into the hands of your Lao guides who will transfer you to Tad Fane Resort for a 2-night stay. Along the way, ride an elephant at Ban Kiat Ngong, which is located on the Boloven Plateau, one of the most scenic spots in Southern Laos. The resort overlooks the Tad Fane Waterfalls, thundering down into a 200-meter deep gorge. Beyond the waterfalls stretches the extensive jungle of Dong Hua Sao, one of the 18 National Biodiversity Conservation Areas in the country. The balance of the afternoon and evening are at leisure and dinner at the resort.
 
Meal: None
Accommodation: Tad Fane Resort (www.tadfane.com)
 
 
Day 2: Around Tad Fane Area - Explore The Champi Canal – Visiting Remote Alak & Lavan Hilltribes-Pakse:
After breakfast, drive to Ban Lak Sao Sam to visit this most interesting village of the Khammu tribal people. From here, trek down to the Champi River, through coffee plantations and sections of old growth forests, where rafting safety equipment is distributed and guests receive a paddle instruction and river safety briefing. Then set off negotiating the fun rapids of the Huai Champhi while passing some of the most scenic old growth forest on earth. Your experienced guides will share their extensive knowledge of these remote areas and soon you will stop at a special spot for a picnic lunch and a relaxing swim. This afternoon continue downstream through the traditional homelands of the Alak and Laven peoples. Ethnically and culturally distinct from the Lao Loum (lowlanders), it is fascinating to experience these isolated cultures as until August, 2002, this area was inaccessible to visitors. Later in the afternoon, arrive at the finish point where we change into dry clothes before making our way back to the relaxing atmosphere of the resort for a well-earned rest.
 
Meal: Breakfast, Lunch
Accommodation: Champa Residence
 
  
Day 3: Sail from Pakse – Champassak (Vat Phou Luxury Mekong Cruise)
Early this morning, transfer to Pakse to begin a most interesting adventure in Southern Laos. Depart from Pakse, heading south aboard a local long-tail riverboat arriving at Champassak in time for lunch at the local landing. After lunch, tour the mysterious pre-Angkorian 10th century temple of Vat Phou, the boat’s namesake. As dusk falls, board the Vat Phou, your home for the next 2-nights while cruising down the river. Dinner is served on board, while the boat docks for the night at a remote Lao village.
 
Accommodation: On board Vat Phou Boat (www.asian-oasis.com) (Package)

Day 4: Explore Khong Island – 4000 Islands (Sii Pan Done)
After breakfast on board, continue downriver, bound for the village of Huai Thamo, only a few minutes walk away from the spectacular, hidden forest temple of Oum Moung. Afterwards, rejoin the Vat Phou cruising southwards into the wild paradise known as “4,000 Islands”. Here, visit Khong Island and the village of Muang Kong, where the traditional way of life has not changed in centuries. Later, back on board, enjoy a quiet dinner under the stars, serenaded by the song of the buffalo toads.

Day 5: “Niagara of the East” (Li Phi & Khon Pha Paeng Waterfalls on the Mekong) – Return to Pakse or Chong Mek border cross:
Enjoy breakfast while cruising to the small village of Ban Veuthong, where we board a local car-ferry to reach the mainland and the amazingly scenic splendor of the Khong Pha Paeng Waterfall, “the Niagara of the East“, close to the Cambodian border. On arrival at the small fishing village of Xieng Di, we will board a small long-tail boat to Khone Island, at the very south end of this natural water dam, where if you are very lucky, you might catch a rare glimpse of the river dolphins! Lunch amid the bygone splendour of another age, colorful French colonial houses and an old customs post, alongside a stone quay.  Then return to Pakse and arrange on your own.
