High water season (August to January)
In the morning, we pick you up at your hotel in Luang Prabang and depart to the elephant camp on the bank of Nam Khan River. Coming here, you will learn how to ride Asian elephants in Nam Khan River valley. We then take a boat trip to Tad Sae Waterfall for swimming and exploring the surrounding jungle. The water conditions vary from strong impressive currents during the height of the rainy season to inviting crystal-clear pools after the rainy season. You will have lunch at the waterfall and take a short rest.
In the afternoon, you will return by boat to kayak station. Before you start, our manager will provide you kayaking skills. The kayaking is 20km on Nam Khan River. The scenery is stunning jungle and agricultural land with local villagers fishing and making their living along the river. We’ll kayak to just outside of city and return by vehicle to Luang Prabang. End trip at your hotel in Luang Prabang.
Low water season (February to July)
During the low water season, the elephant riding and kayaking itinerary is similar. However, Tad Sae waterfall is dry, so we will not visited. Instead, the water level in Nam Khan river is low and exposes white sand beaches and riverbanks where we can stop for photo ops, river-jumping from trees, and to visit Henri Mahout’s resting site in the jungle a short walk from the river.
Kayaking ends at Geng Noun just below the local Ban Noun village and is about 11 km (7 mi) easy kayaking with some rapids, normally taking about 3 hours with breaks included.
