Tour Description:

Explore the natural beauty of the ancient city of Luang Prabang by visiting the elephant camp that is situated along the outskirts of the ancient city of Luang Prabang, along with the banks of the Nam Khan valley river. Enjoy the sights of the stunning landscape that exudes serenity before you arrive at the elephant camp. Here, you will ride atop the magnificent Asian elephant through the Nam Khan river. Then, you will have a chance to board the boat that will take you to the beautiful Tad Sae waterfall, a three-tiered waterfall that towers to about 50 meters high. The atmosphere of the Tad Sae waterfall is serene and tranquil as the Tad Sae waterfall is located away from the bustling streets of Luang Prabang and nestled in the midst of a striking jungle. Immerse your body into the cool pool where you will truly refresh your body after an exhausting trek along the beaten trail. Discover the immense beauty of the jungle that surrounds the Tad Sae waterfall, where you can catch the sight of the fresh colours that will ease your senses during your exploration of the jungle.

However, the water conditions may vary depending on the season. During high season, the waterfall will release large quantities of water with the breathtaking currents at the peak of the raining season, which makes swimming in the alluring crystal-clear pools that sit below the waterfall a more exciting experience. Then, you will be provided with a delectable lunch that will be mixed with the flavours of Laos at the Tad Sae waterfall where you will fill your tummy in a serene ambience. After lunch, you will make your way to the camp where you will be given the kayaks for an exhilarating kayaking adventure along the Nam Khan river. During your kayaking expedition, you will discover the gorgeous jungle that surrounds the Nam Khan river and also the vast expanse of agricultural land that stretches to the villages that are dotted all around the land.

During low season, the Tad Sae waterfall may be low or dry with lesser water flowing through the waterfall and thus will not be visited. Instead of visiting the Tad Sae Waterfall, you will visit the grave site of the known 18th-century explorer named Henri Mouhot, who is involved in bringing the attention of the fall of Angkor Wat to the Western civilization. However, he contracted malaria during his travels around the jungles of Laos and thus his resting place was situated within the jungles of Laos. Hop atop a friendly elephant that lives a stone’s throw away from Tad Sae waterfall, where you will have a chance to revel in the beauty of nature from the point-of-view of the elephant before ending your trip with a kayaking expedition across the Nam Khan river.
