Best way to see Pak Ou cave. No long-boat or tuk-tuk ride, just one awesome kayaking adventure!
Grab a paddle and climb into a kayak for a refreshing way to take in the beauty of the Nam Ou river as you paddle your way to visit Pak Ou Cave. You’ll kayak for three hours down a calm but steady flowing river where you can keep cool as you immerse your senses in the natural beauty of Laos.
Stop for lunch on the river bank before making your way directly to the Pak Ou Cave where the Mekong and Nam Ou rivers meet. There is the option to do elephant riding at an elephant village on the Mekong river. Ride or bathe elephants for up to an hour before departing again by kayak to our pick-up location. Explore the Whiskey Village before heading back to Luang Prabang city by 4.30pm.
