Trudge along the trails and discover the stunning beauty of the outskirts of Luang Prabang and then paddle across the magnificent Nam Khan river on a kayak!
Embark on a journey to explore the countryside of Luang Prabang by taking a short car ride to the south of the city along the side of the Nam Khan river. The Nam Khan river is one of the major tributary rivers that flows to the Mekong river, which is the 12th largest river in the world. The trek begins along a trail that is at the opposite side of the Nam Khan river that will be reached by boarding a boat. Stroll through different settings of nature, which includes jungles, bamboo fields and paddy fields. Chance upon a small stream that will lead you to the secluded Khmu village that is situated at the base of the mountain. Explore the Khmu village and gaze at the stunning houses that are completely made out of sturdy bamboo. Interact with the friendly locals that are always carrying a smile with the help of the guide.
After visiting the Khmu village, take upon the trails again to the Tad Sae waterfalls and revel in the beautiful sights of the water gushing along the limestone rock formations. The Tad Sae waterfall may not be as huge as the Kuang Si waterfall but it has more streams to allow more water to flow through. The stunning azure pool below is the perfect spot to dip your toes in as the water is cool and it will surely rejuvenate the body. The Tad Sae Waterfall is best visited after the raining season as there will be an abundance of water rushing through to the pool. You may even encounter the friendly elephants that visit the waterfall to take a cooling bath!
Head to a secluded camp in the midst of the thick jungle where you will prepare to commence your heart-racing kayaking trip across the Nam Khan river. Before the kayaking trip begins, you will be provided with a short safety review, regarding the kayaking trip. Beginners may even join in on the fun as you will be taught the basics of kayaking from a skilled expert. Paddle through the magnificent Nam Khan river and immerse yourself in the beauty of lush jungles. See the locals that live in the vicinity of the Nam Khan river engaging in their daily tasks and the sounds of the children playing in the village. During low season (Feb to July), the Tad Sae waterfall will be lacking in water and dry, thus it will not be visited. So, you will visit the burial site of Henri Mouhot, who was an 18th-century French explorer that passed away when he contracted malaria during his travels in the Laos jungle.
