Take on the challenging trails of the National Park with trekking, cycling and kayaking in one day!
The National Protected Area of Phou Khao Khouay is the nearest National Park to Vientiane, boasting beautiful scenery, waterfalls and scenic trails. The forested areas are home to rare animals like the Sun Bear, tiger, elephant and tropical butterflies.
We start our adventure with a transfer from Vientiane to Ban Hatkhai. Once here, we will start cycling to Tad Xay Waterfall, lined with the serene landscapes along the Nam Mang River. We will have a picnic lunch at the waterfall and have a dip in the cooling water. After our rest, we will trek under the forest canopy to our kayaking point, where we will row away to Ban Hatkhai. We return to Vientiane from Ban Hatkhai.
