Trekking Dong Hua Sao National Park

GDL-Champassak-4000-coffee-30Trek through the Don Hau Sao National protected area and visit the stunning Tad Fane waterfall - one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Laos! The area is home of many different species including tigers! However you are more likely to see troops of monkeys and in the wet season gigantic butterflies and dozens of great hornbills near the base of the fall.

(2 days trekking & sightseeing)


Day 1: Pakse > Bolaven Plateau> Ban Non Luang > Tad Taget Waterfall

The-Lao-coffee-2We depart from our office in Pakse at around 8:30am and head off towards the Bolaven Plateau, along the way we pass though many tea and coffee plantations for which the area is famous for! Continuing onwards we arrive in the small village of Ban Non Luang which is where we shall meet our local guide. After a short introduction the guide will teach us about the different animals in the forest and the use of different plants for use as medicine. After learning some fascinating facts from out guide we begin walking through coffee farms and bamboo forests before heading in to the thick forest, we carry on walking until arriving at a small waterfall which is where we shall have lunch.

After enjoying our lunch and taking some time to relax we head onwards once again, we trek through the dense forest for around one and a half hours before heading down the mountain for a further 40 minutes which brings us to Tad Taget waterfall. Here at the waterfall is where we shall spend the night, we set up camp and enjoy some swimming in this beautiful spot before indulging in a delicious dinner cooked over the campfire.    

Approximately: 4–4.5hours trekking and 1.5hours transfer

Day 2: Tad Taget Waterfall > Tad Kamue Waterfall > Dan Ngai > Non Luang > Tad Fane > Pakse

Bolaven-Waterfalls-2After a delicious local type breakfast we trek uphill through Dong Hua Sao National Biodiversity Conservation Area which shares its southern border with Vietnam and Cambodia. Along the way you will hear all sorts of different birds singing and if lucky see monkeys as they pass along the trail. We continue on walking until stopping for lunch
at the amazing Tad Kamue waterfall.
 
After enjoying our lunch and taking some time to relax we continue on trekking for around 1 ½ hours to the almost surreal looking Danh Ngai Limestone cliffs, here also provides some stunning views of Champasak Province. After our time at the cliffs and admiring the stunning views we trek back to Ban Nong Luang via a different trail which takes around 1 ½ hours. Arriving in the village we board our awaiting vehicle for the return back to Pakse, along the way back we stop off at the stunning 120M high Tad Fane waterfall which is fed by the Huay Banglieng river and is without doubt one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the whole of Laos!
