Know More about this tour

This morning you will be picked up from your hotel and transferred to a pier on the Mekong River for a boat ride up the River. Laos has several waterways that have traditionally been used as the local form of transportation and they continue to be used in that manner today in many parts of the country. Taking a local boat cruise is probably one of the most rewarding ways to discover the life along the rivers. As you cruise along, observe the daily activities of fishermen, how they throw their nets in an elegant arm gestures, and rely on the water for their livelihood. For the villages settled along the Mekong, the River plays an important role in their daily life and usually represents the only means of transportation and commerce.

Two hours upstream from Luang Prabang, disembark to visit the famous Pak Ou Caves. Locally called Tam Ting, the caves are filled with thousands of gold-lacquered Buddha statues. The statues range in size from a few centimeters tall to the height of a human and are crammed into the cave which is nestled in a limestone cliff. The caves are a destination for local pilgrimages.
After visiting the caves, reboard the boat for a cruise back to Luang Prabang. En route, stop at Ban Xang Hay, a village which specializes in making traditional rice-wine.Lunch at local restaurant.

This afternoon, enjoy a visit to Kuang Si Waterfall, south west of Luang Prabang (32km). Along the way, stops will be made to visit some villages of the various ethnic minorities of the area. Upon reaching the falls, relax and enjoy the scenery, and if the weather is good, you can enjoy a swim in the cool, clear waters.

  • Good Tour and Very Good Guide Bounsene

  • This tour was fbulous and I would totally recommend it. The luang si falls are stunning and shouldn't be missed. The boat ride to the caves in relaxing and the guide was really nice and very knowledgeable. Overall a really nice day out!

  • Great tour and super nice guide. The caves were awesome.

  • This was a great tour and the Guide was very informative and his english was also very good

  • Thank you Mr Vong and Mr Toni from Bravo Indochina for turning a potentially disastrous trip into one of our most beautiful ones. Our 3 yr old was unwell and hence we were going to cancel. However, Mr Vong customised the day for us so that we could still enjoy some beautiful sights. While we could not do the caves, we were able to see the Kuang Si falls and enjoy a Mekong river sunset cruise. Kuang Si is a must see though a bit crowded as it was a local holiday. The river cruise was amazing as we felt that we saw Mekong at its prettiest here we caught it in Cambodia and Vietnam too, but trust me, its beautiful and serene in LP. Thank you Mr Vong for taking such good care of us.

  • The boat trip was nice, the lunch so so, the cave impressive and the Kuang Si waterfall was wonderfully beautiful. This is a and #34;must try and #34; tour in Luang Prabang. Highly recommended!
