Day 1: Transportation & Visit
Our tour takes off at your accommodation with a short drive via Pakpo village boat pier where we cross the Nam Song River, either by boat or a sling bridge. We then embark on a trek that leads us through rice fields.
Depending on the season and corresponding water levels, we may have to cross some small streams with the help of ropes to navigate the rapids. As we reach the first mountain range we make some steep ascends. We hike further into the valley until the terrain gets steeper and steeper again. We may have to cross some streams, but secured by a belay if rainfalls were heavy the days before.
Now is the moment to start ou zip-lining adventures! However, the real challenge of today starts at the bottom of the waterfall on a so-called ‘via ferrata’ and a crossing a gorge via a U-shaped cable bridge.
Once on top the views of the wonderful limestone scenery reconcile our senses and let us forget any hardship.
A welcome rest will refill our energy we need for the next leg of our tour. Our next destination is a 50 m waterfall thundering down high up on the mountain face.
Once having overcome these obstacles, we set up our small camp especially prepared for a overnight stay. To spend your night you can either sleep under the stars on the wooden platform offering a stunning view or in a small bamboo hut which offers three little rooms.
Get ready for a relaxing evening, enjoying the great views and the refreshing cool water of the fall, with good chats and a nice dinner until a rejuvenating sleep overpowers us.
Day 2: Sunrise & Zip-Lining, Return
Do not miss the sunrise that welcomes you with new day rising upon the limestone mountains!
After a hearty breakfast we begin the day with zip lining! Secured by top-class belay devices you will head from platform to platform, some of them up to 50 m above the ground anchored in the crown of a mighty tree. These cables run through the jungle passing through the towering trees and waterfalls.
Then take the challenge to master a V-shaped cable bridge crossing another gorge. It looks easy but is it? For sure it’s a lot of fun! Continue zip-lining adventures almoust all way down the mountain. Finally walk back through the rice fields on the same way we arrived the day before until the waiting transportation brings us back to Vang Vieng. Along the way we take a great picnic lunch Lao style.
The two-day challenge that most of us will never forget comes to an end, exhausted and tired – an achievement extraordinaire.
