We then embark a boat trip from Ban Xang Hai to Pak Ou Caves on the Mekong River. We see a breathtaking view of the tranquil countryside as well as the mysterious nature on the way. After 30 minutes, we reach Pak Ou where the confluence of the Nam Ou and Mekong Rivers. Pak Ou Caves are two linked caves crammed with thousand of lacquered Buddha Status of various shapes and sizes left by devoted pilgrims. Exploring the caves about 40 min, the boat trip takes us to enjoy a beautiful buffet style lunch at the restaurant – overlooking the Mekong river. 

After lunch break, this adventure destination package takes you to the final destination Kuang Si Waterfall – you will have time to explore the three layered Kuang Si Waterfall walk the trails of the nature reserve and swim in the refreshing turquoise water pools and visit the bear rescue center.

EXPERIENCES

A unique little village on the banks of the Mekong River. Ban Xang Hai is famous for their handicraft products like distilling and selling whisky, hand woven fabric and jewelry.

These two caves are located some 25km from Luang Prabang where the Nam Ou River flows into the Meking. The journey on a slow moving longboat to caves is decidedly picturesque. Motoring upriver you can see locals fishing and listen to the joyful laugher of children splashing in the water. The caves are revered throughout Laos and a very popular place for tourists and pilgrimsalike. There are some 4000 statyes abd statyettes in the caves, mostly of the Buddha, many stukk covered with paper thin gilding. The first cave is reached by a steep staircase from the river’s edge, while the second cave is a little deeper inside the mountain: bring a torchilight!

The heritage city Luang Prabang is built on the confluence of the Mekong and the Nam Khan rivers. The Mekong river has been the major highways for people and goods for centuries and the boat transportation is still indispensable for daily life even today. Taking a boat trip is probably one of the most rewarding ways to discover the local life along the rivers.

Enjoy a delicious buffet-style lunch at the restaurant overlooking the Mekong river. Savour the traditional laos flavours and delight in the western international style dishes. Made with love and fresh local ingredients | Vegetarian options available

The Kuang Si Falls, sometimes spelled Kuang Xi or known as Tat Kuang Si Waterfalls, is a three levelled waterfall about 29 kilometres (18 mi) south of Luang Prabang. These waterfalls are a favourite side trip for tourists in Luang Prabang. The falls begin in shallow pools atop a steep hillside. These lead to the main fall with a 60 metres (200 ft) drop.
