Package Itinerary

This tour is the best way to see the Bolaven Plateau similar to the one day tour but at a relaxed pace, spending one night at the stunning Tad Lo waterfall gives you more time to enjoy the scenery and take in the Elephants bathing in the morning

Day 1: Pakse – Bolaven Plateau – Tad Lo Waterfall
Departing Pakse at 8am from the Xplore-Asia office or from your hotel on request this tour takes in the circuit of the Bolaven Plateau. As soon as you leave Pakse the road climbs in elevation as you ascend onto the Plateau. The area of Volcanic Rock makes for suburb tea and coffee plantations which thrive on the rich soil and the cooler climate. Visit tea and coffee plantations and learn about their processing before carrying on to Tad Fane Waterfall.

Tad Fane waterfall sits at an elevation of 1100m and has two stunning cascades dropping 120m off the edge of the plateau. A further 2km from Tad Fane is Tad Yuang waterfall which makes for a pleasant walk through the coffee plantations to arrive there or alternatively it is a 10 minute drive along the main road. Tad Yuang makes a great spot for a picnic lunch and a swim.
Continuing north along the Plateau drive past Paksong and into Salavan Province, your next stop is the village of Kok Pung Thai here you can learn about this ethnic group and their tradition of building their coffins before they die. Continue north to Tad Lo arriving early afternoon. Spend the rest of the afternoon by the waterfall and at leisure enjoying the tranquillity of the area.
