2 Days 1 Night Bolaven Plateau tour

This tour is the best way to see the Bolaven Plateau similar to the one day tour but at a relaxed pace. Spending one night at the stunning Tad Lo waterfall will give you more time to enjoy the scenery and see the Elephants bathing in the morning. You also have the opportunity to trek to a local village and around Tad Lo Waterfall


This trip is similar to the one day tour but at a more relaxed pace. You will depart from Pakse and head onto the Bolaven Plateau. Visit tea and coffee plantations before carrying on to Tad Fane Waterfall.

Then onto Tad Yuang Waterfall which makes a great spot for a swim or a photo. Continue north along the Plateau travelling past Paksong and into Salavan Province. Stop at the loca Katu Village of Kok Pungtai learn about this ethnic group and their tradition of building their own coffins. You will then go to Tad Lo waterfall where you will spend the night.

At Tad Lo can take an optional elephant ride, walk to a local ethnic village about 2 km away or just relax in the cool climate here.

The following day you will leave after lunch and stop at the weaving village of Lao Ngam, home of the Katu people as well as Tad Paxuam waterfall.

The trip covers the same distance as the one day trip all on a good sealed road ~220 km.
