Southern Tour

, Laos, Asia

The Ho Chi Minh trail and great Champassak

In Laos, everything starts with a "Baci", a traditional blessing ceremony of the tour participants by Buddhist monks at Papaya Spa.

We then head due east, entering the Phou Khao Kwai national park with its waterfalls and winding mountain paths, in the heart of Mong country. The tour will take us along the Vietnamese border where the Ho Chi Minh trail starts. The remains of the Vietnam war are still evident everywhere : giant bomb craters turned into fish ponds, carcasses of all types of vehicles littered along the trail and a myriad of trails and paths. A real pleasure, atmosphere guaranteed!

We then traverse the Boloven plateau and its coffee plantations to explore Champassak province. Home to the great waterfalls of Khonpapaeng and the Angkor-era temple of Wat Phou, this province is situated on the border with the kingdom of Cambodia.

After a rest stop in Pakse we join the mysterious "Route 23" towards Thakhek and the north along the Mekong. We then go through the Phou Khao Kwai national park, where we make our last stop-over before heading back to Vientiane where a well deserved massage awaits you at Papaya Spa.
