Just an hour by road from the town of Pakse, at an altitude of just over 600 meters above sea level and set amongst coffee, tea and cardamom plantations, you will find the lush and picturesque Bolaven Plateau. Besides the plantations the area is also scattered with interesting ethnic villages, including Alak, Katou, Ta-Oy and Suk minorities where they still practice animist and shamanic beliefs as well as many waterfalls and verdant jungle. It offers the visitor a great insight into rural life in this remote, unspoilt corner of Asia.
The area offers the traveller a unique insight to an often ignored part of the country. Besides exploring the local villages we can arrange treks and elephant rides into the surrounding jungle. Accommodation on the plateau is limited but there are a number of bungalows at the nearby Tad Lo waterfall.
