This tour is part of a community-based tourism project developed to help the local villagers and provide conservation awareness. (Attention: if the size of the group is to large, the group will be divided into 2 groups: one will be riding elephant during the other one will stroll through the village to learn more about local daily life). Along the way, you will have stunning views of the Xe Pian National Park which is settled between Champassak and Attapeu provinces. Stretching along the Mekong with many wetlands and unspoiled forest areas, this park offers a huge biodiversity with 29 recorded ecosystems with birds species such as egrets, sarus crane, hornbill but as well mammals like wild elephant, gibbons. After the elephant ride continue on to Khong Island, the biggest island in south Laos and the start of the 4000 Islands Region. Called “Siphandon in Lao language, this area is where the Mekong stretches over 14km wide and has thousands of islands between those the river flows and runs between cascades and rapids. Overnight in Khong Island.
    Day 9: Khong Island – Siphandon – Pakse (B)
    In the morning visit Don Det and Don Khone, two very laidback islands near the border of Strung Treng Province in Cambodia. These quiet islands do not have any cars and electricity is only provided in the evening. The northern part of Don Det, close to the pier, has been developed as a destination for backpackers, while the southern part and Don Khone island are very traditional with the locals reliant on coconut, kapok and bamboo farming. The islands played an important role during the French Colonial rule as they linked Laos to Cambodia and Southern Vietnam. To overpass the waterfalls, a railway and bridge were built, the perfect place to take your time and soak in the view. Continue to Lippi falls. Impressive is the best word to describe these stunning falls, which are wedged between Done Khone Island and the Cambodian border. Their original name, Tad Somphamit, means “trap spirit” and the locals revere these falls as they believe they act as a trap for bad spirits. After a stroll through the palm-fringed villages near Lippi, continue to the southernmost part of Laos and the imposing Khone Papheng waterfalls, close to the Cambodian border. In the afternoon return to Pakse. Overnight in Pakse.
    Day 10: Pakse – Departure (B)

Mountain ranges (in particular the Phou Thao and Phou Nang Mountains ) encircle the city in lush greenery. Many legends are associated with the creation of the city, including one that recounts that Buddha would have smiled when he rested there during his travels, prophesying that it would one day be the site of a rich and powerful city. Known as Muang Sua, then Xieng Thong, from the 14th to the 16th century the town became the capital of the powerful kingdom of Lane Xang (Kingdom of a Million Elephants), whose wealth and influence were related to its strategic location on the Silk Route The ancient town of Luang Prabang situated in northern Laos, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995.

Xieng Khouang - The Plain Of Jars is probably South East Asia’s most enigmatic tourist attraction. Situated in the remote north east of Laos, the mountainous communist country which has only been open to tourists for just over a decade, are hundreds of huge stone jars scattered across several square miles. While most ancient Asian sites, such as the Angkor temples in Cambodia, have revealed many of their secrets, historians are still completely baffled as to where the jars came from, how old they are and what they signify. They are, in short, jars of a deeply spooky nature. Upon arrival, check in to hotel and have a good night rest. Note : Please be prepared for winding and long distance scenic drive.

These jars are undecorated with the exception of a single jar that has a human bas - relief carved on the exterior. Research of the Plain of Jars suggests that the stone jars are associated with prehistoric burial practices. Set off for Vang Vieng, taking in the splendid scenery of the surrounding countryside and the mountain ranges while driving to Vang Vieng. Vang Vieng is a riverside town, located in central Laos. The area’s main attraction is the dramatic surrounding karst hill landscape. The limestone cliffs and valleys surrounding the resort complex of Vang Vieng are home to numerous caves and caverns.
