Venture through the peaceful and tranquil islands of the Mekong River on this half day tour.
At the end of the 19th century, the French built the railway to cross the waterfalls of the Mekong River and connect Laos and Cambodia. The remnants of this 100-year-old railway provides ideal cycling paths, which lead through paddy fields to tumbling waterfalls and hidden channels.
Cycling Don Khone and Don Det affords the opportunity to adjust to the pace of life enjoyed by the gentle southern Lao people. From Ban Nakasan, a local boat will take you along the Mekong to the peaceful islands where there are no cars and no regular electricity supply. Travel on the abandoned tracks to beautiful Lippi waterfall and on to Khone Papheng – a set of stunning falls wedged between the Laos border and Cambodia. This is the only stretch of the Mekong River that is not navigable by boat as is evidenced by the tumbling, turbulent waters.
