1 – Daytrip
Let us accompany you on a excursion to the Mekong Falls. The magnificent Li Phi and Khon Phapeng falls rank among the major natural beauty spots in Southern Laos. They are the largest falls in Asia and the widest on the entire planet.
Over a width of about 10 km, the Mekong cascades about 20 meters down. We are taking you to both major falls, the Li Phi and Khon Phapeng Falls.
In colonial times, the French attempted to exploit the Mekong as a trading link between China and South-East Asia. Since the River does not allow shipping on this stretch, the construction of a railway was begun to overcome this natural hurdle. The line was never finished, however. We will visit the remnants of this construction as well as the locomotive that was to serve this line.
On our way back to Pakse, we plan a stop at Wat Phou Khao Geo. This convent with its impressive temple site, built on the flank of a mountain, also offers a splendid view on the scenery below.
