About this trip

 Pick up from your accommodation between 07:45 – 08:15 AM, we then embark a boat trip to Pak Ou Caves on the Mekong River. We see a breathtaking view of the tranquil countryside as well as the mysterious nature from boat.

On the way we will visit Ban Xang Hai, is also known as Whisky Village. Here you can see the process of making lao lao, the country’s beloved rice whiskey and for some maybe even an early morning sample!

After a short stop at the village, then we continue boat trip until Pak Ou where the confluence of the Mekong and the Nam ou rivers is. Pak Ou Caves are two linked caves crammed with thousand of lacquered Buddha Status of various shapes and sizes left by devoted pilgrims. Exploring the caves about 40 min, the boat takes us to enjoy a beautiful buffet style lunch at the restaurant – overlooking the Mekong river. At about 1:30 PM, we start going back to Luang Prabang. (End of Service 2:00).

Loved our experience and the guide was informative.
By Clara L for Luang Prabang 2 Days + Ban Nayang 1 Day on 22 Nov, 2022
We had the best time. Our elephant leader giving us the initial talk was so knowledgeable and passionate. The mahouts were lovely and took so many brilliant photos and videos that we will treasure forever. The elephants are clearly well loved and cared for. The food was fantastic also and all the staff were great including for the kayaking.

This was an excellent experience, with the opportunity to ride an elephant humanely (on his shoulders with no Howda). Lunch was delicious. Just make sure you ask what is happening next as we felt communication was a little lacking! It didn’t spoil the day though

C’était une magnifique expérience, un très bon séjour dans un lodge merveilleux avec des baies vitrées donnant sur la rivière, des repas excellents, un personnel aux petits soins et très à l’écoute, un jacuzzi à disposition. Le partage avec les éléphants était mémorable, c’est une petite structure à taille humaine avec peu de visiteurs (le tourisme a dû mal à reprendre post période covid). Cette ferme d’éléphants mérite un séjour avec une nuit sur place : la nature est belle, l’endroit est très calme et bien entretenu, les étoiles sont bien visibles du fait du peu de pollution lumineuse, les éléphants sont proches. Merci à tout le staff de ce bel endroit

Quite a long journey but really worth the effort. The plain of jars was a really amazing place. Really friendly people and great extra trips like the silk farm. Guide and driver were excellent and always intresting food to try along the way. The guest house we stayed at during our trip was very good.
