What To Expect

By this 3-day-excursion, we bring you to visit Bolaven Plateau. It’s home to numerous waterfalls, great scenery, tribal villages, and unexplored corners galore. The largest ethnic group on the plateau is the Laven (Bolaven means ‘home of the Laven’). Several other Mon-Khmer ethnic groups, including Alak, Katu, Taoy and Suay, also live on this plateau and its escarpment. It’s also known for being one of the most heavily bombed areas during the Indo-China war and for being a part of the famous Ho Chi Minh Trail.
