 DAY 1:  VIENTIANE – ARRIVAL            

On arrival at the airport, you will be met and transferred to check in the hotel.

After a soft rest, enjoy a guided tour to discover the hidden charms of Vientiane. Vientiane is one of the quietest capital cities in the world, far away from the bustle and hustle of other Asian capitals.

Your tour begins at the serene Wat Sisaket, the only temple left intact after the Siamese (Thai) invasion in 1828. It is one of the most beautiful temples in the capital, and its breezy teak covered hallways are filled with thousands of miniature Buddha statues.

Continue on to the nearby Wat Phra Keo.  Used as a religious museum, Wat Phra Keo displays a collection of both Lao and Khmer works of art. Also nearby, is the Presidential Palace.  Although you are not allowed to visit inside, it is a good glimpse in to the town’s colonial past as this building formerly served as the French governor’s palace.

Visit COPE, an association working to help landmine victims. A visit to the center provides in-depth information about the history of the American/Vietnam war and the lasting impact of unexploded ordinances (UXO) in the area and the efforts underway to clear them.

In the afternoon, continue to the Patuxay monument, Laos’ version of the Arc de Triomphe, where you can climb the stairs to the roof for sweeping panoramic views of the city.

Next, your tour takes you to That Luang, the holiest site in Laos.  Constructed by King Setthethirat in the 16th century, the temple is resplendent as the sun is shines upon its towering golden spire.

End your tour of the capital along the banks of the Mekong River as the sun begins to set. Stroll along the river, stop to enjoy a cold drink, or sample a snack from one of the many local food stalls. 

Overnight in Vientiane.

DAY 2:  VIENTIANE – BAN NAHIN        

After breakfast, drive by the road 13 down to the south to reach the small village of Ban Na Hin in a very impressive area with Limestone Mountain all around.

After some relax start a small trekking into protected forest area with impressive virgin rainforest. Stopping along the way to visit Nasanam waterfall. This waterfall is approx 50 meters high and very spectacular during the rainy season; there will also have time to swim in the river below.

You now return along a different trail and visit an elephant salt lick. Time permitting you will continue to a second waterfall and swimming hole. In the late afternoon you will return to your guesthouse for an overnight stay in Ban Nahin, with time to explore the local market and town.

Grade trekking: easy

Trekking time about 2 hours

DAY 3:  BAN NAHIN – THAM KONG LOR – THAKHEK

Following breakfast, travel three hours by local transport to Kong Lor village. We now walk with local guides to the cave entrance through a protected forest area.  Using local boat we will travel the 7.5 km through the cave to the valley beyond, stopping to take two short walks to observe stalactites and other limestone formations within the cave. The cave is still used by local villagers as an access route to the region beyond.  Folowing a picnic lunch (your own account), we depart for Thakhek, the capital city of Khammoune Province. Overnight in Thakhek

DAY 4:  THAKHEK – THAM PA FA – SAVANNAKHET

In the morning, we depart from Thakhek and follow the old French railway track that was destined to Vietnam but has never been finished. Continuing through pleasant country scenery, we'll arrive in the village of Ban Nakhang Xang. The trip continues onto Khammouane's famous Buddha cave.

We climb up to the Cave, which has been rediscovered only in April 2004. The cave contains 229 bronze Buddhas that are said to be over 300 year old. If time permits, we will be able to canoe even below the cave using a local boat. Thereafter our guide will escort us back to the village following a different route through the forest. We then return to Thakek and take a short drive to Savannakhet, the biggest city of the Central Laos. Overnight in Savannakhet

DAY 5:  SAVANNAKHET – LAO BAO    

Savannakhet is famous for its French Colonial buildings. This fast growing town has become an important trade center between Vietnam and Laos. We will have ample time to explore the town before transferring the border between Laos and Vietnam, Lao Bao. Along the way, we may stop to visit the sacred stupa of That Inhang, which is one of the most important religious sites of Laos. Arriving at the border at around mid-afternoon, the guide helps you with finishing the border formality before saying goodbye.
