Vang Vieng Trek Kayak

We will transfer around 10km North to the ethnic Khmu village of Viengsamay where after an introduction to the basics of kayaking we shall set off down the beautiful Nam Song river. The river offers various small but fun rapids along the way to Tham Lom (Winding Cave). After exploring the cave we continue traveling downstream to Tham None (Sleeping cave). Which is one of the biggest caves in Vang Vieng and served as a rescue shelter for the villagers during the Second Indochina War. Today it is home to a family of bats and the ‘Magic Stone’ of Vang Vieng. In the rainy season we will swim through the entrance to the cave. The final leg of the journey is a gentle paddle which will return us to Vang Vieng just in time to catch the sunset from the terrace at Ban Sabai Riverside Bungalows.

Approximately: 15 minutes transfer, 2 hours kayaking, 45 minutes caving

In the wet season, due to the high currents, we will start from Pathang village instead, which is 8 km further than Vieng Samay village. Lunch will be served at Vieng Samay village. Two caves will be visited, Tham Xang (Elephant cave) , and Tham Non (Sleeping cave), as well as the Organc Farm.
