What To Expect

Phou Khao Khouay is one of Laos’ most beautiful nature reserves. This extensive sandstone mountain range is only 40km northeast of Vientiane. It offers various great scenery, magnificent waterfalls, river and trekking trails through evergreens and deciduous forests. The friendly village of Ban Hatkhai is a good place to learn more about the genuine lifestyle of Lao Loum people.

Description

Day 01: Vientiane – Ban Hatkhai

At 8.00 am, we pick you up at your hotel in Vientiane and transfer to Ban Hatkhai. From there, we take a boat trip upstream on Nam Mang River and continue along one of its tributaries – Houay Xai. After that, we trek through an evergreen canopy and stop for a picnic lunch on our way. After about 2 hours trekking, we reach the magnificent pair of waterfalls – Tad Xay and Pha Xay. They are the most beautiful “twin” waterfalls in Phou Khao Khouay, particularly during the rainy season. The Houey Xay stream has its source in the northern mountains of the park, meanders through dense and relatively untouched evergreen forest and empties finally into the Nam Mang. By reaching Tad Xay, its crystal clear waters are cascading over steps and then flows through a picturesque valley before plugging over another steep cliff (Pha Xay). It falls into a breathtaking gorge surrounded by dense forest. You will have all free time in the afternoon at Tad Xay to relax and enjoy natural scenery while immersing in cool water. After that, a truck takes us to Ban Hatkhai of Lao Leum people. You will stay one night in homestay in this village.

Day 02: Ban Hatkhai – Tad Leuk – Vientiane

In the morning, breakfast will be prepared in homestay for you. After that, we transfer to Tad Leuk Waterfall. It is a local tourist attraction landing among the mixed deciduous forest. A permanent exhibit at the Visitors’ Center gives you some great information on the flora and fauna of the national park. We will have lunch at Tad Leuk.

In the afternoon, we continue trekking along Nam Leuk River to Tad Sang Waterfall – another idyllic place for bathing and relaxation. Along the way, you can see a larger number of orchids, especially in wet season. From here, we return to Vientiane by songthaew (a passenger vehicle). We will take you back to your hotel in Vientiane. End trip around 6:00pm.
