Meet your guide early morning to get fitted on one of Tiger Trail’s quality mountain bikes. We’ll ride from the city center to our first stop as we depart the city at Wat Pa Phon Phao, a golden temple with a great view of Luang Prabang. Next, follow the paved road further through teakwood forests and rice fields along the Nam Khan River to visit the resting spot of Henry Mouhot before biking our way through villages and past jungle-covered mountains until arriving at our Tiger Trail Adventure Camp terrace on the banks of the Nam Khan River.
In the beautiful setting of the Nam Khan River valley, take a boat to our trekking start point for an easy hike through the jungle at the base of Karst mountains. We’ll stop at a large Khmu village for lunch and to explore hill-tribe village life before hiking off the mountain down a new trail to the Tad Sae Waterfall (seasonal). There, we’ll appreciate the beauty area and swim in the Tad Sae Waterfall. There are also elephants in the area you can watch and photograph or you can buy some bananas and feed them.
After a short boat trip downriver, you’ll meet the vehicle waiting to return you to Luang Prabang to conclude this fun adventure-filled tour.
Biking is 15 km (9 mi) mostly paved road normally taking 2 hours with stops. Trekking is about 7 km (4.5 mi) total, split with lunch and village visit.
Low water season, March to August:
During the dry season, we reroute the biking across the Nam Khan River for some off-road riding with some hills. Ride through agriculture land and basic villages and even make a river crossing by boat with your bikes.
When the waterfall is dry, we’ll make a special visit to see a baby elephant along one of our walking trails.
Biking is 20 km (12 mi) mixed paved and dirt road normally taking about 3 hours with stops included. Trekking is 7 km (5 mi) total, split with lunch and village visit.
