Lost in Laos day tour taking in the sites of Southern Laos, including the World Heritage site of WatPhu, elephant riding to PhuAsa temple in the heart of the XePian Protected area, and the wetlands of Si Pan Don where you can try kayaking, rafting or take a scenic boat ride through the area.

Day 1: Arrive Pakse – Champasak – Wat Phou

On arrival at Pakse airport, we transferred to the pier for our boat trip along the Mekong River from Pakse to the charming colonial town of Champasak before continuing another 11km to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Wat Phou.

Wat Phou dates back to the 6th Century and was the first temple to be built by the Khmer Empire. Wat Phu was the center of the Khmer Kingdom before their capital was moved to Angkor. It was originally built as a Hindu temple before being converted into a Buddhist temple in later centuries. After exploring Wat Phou we return to Champasak check into the hotel and free at your leisure.

Accommodation: The River Resort (Riverfront Room)

Day 2: Champasak – Wat Ou Muang – Ban Kiet Ngong – Don Khong

After breakfast at 09:00, we cross back over the Mekong and drive to the ancient Khmer temples of Huei Thamo village in order to visit some rural life and a mysterious hidden forest temple called ‘Oum Muong’, after Oum Muong continue to drive to the town of Ban Kiat Ngong, located in the Xe Pian National Protected Area, for the lunch.

After lunch, we take a 1-hour walk (~3 km) to the top of the Phu Asa to see the temple mount. From the top of Phu Asa, you will see the ancient temple ruins and the amazing views of the Xe Pian Wetlands below. The walk down takes about 45 minutes. After exploring Phou Asa we transferred to the 4,000 Islands the main island of Don Khong, where we spent overnight.

Accommodation: Pon Arena Hotel (Deluxe Room)

Day 3: Don Khong – Don Khone

After breakfast, we drive around Don Khong to visit the locals making palm sugar and the temple before enjoying a boat ride through the 4000 Islands passing Don Som and Don Det. The old railway line starts at Don Det and continues over the French railway bridge to Don Khone and all the way to Han Khone overlooking Cambodia.

The idea was to have a trade route along the Mekong so the Railway line was built to bypass the waterfalls along the Mekong fault line. Stop at Don Khone where you will spend the night in a bungalow overlooking the Mekong and the French Bridge.

After checking into your Bungalow continue to visit the waterfall by bicycle or by tuk-tuk and visit Liphi waterfall before heading to the southern tip of Don Khone known as Hang Khone from here we will take a boat to see the Irrawaddy dolphins. We return to the Bungalow free at your leisure.
