Tour highlights: - Elephant Village - Nam Ou River
The tour begins & finishes in: Luang Prabang

Detailed itinerary:

We begin our exciting day trip by leaving Luang Prabang by car in the morning. You will travel about 15 kilometers out of town to the Nam Khan valley to visit the beautiful “Elephant Village.” The backdrop for the ultimate elephant experience is the rugged mountains in front of you and the green, lush countryside. Here we can unwind and find the ideal location for exciting activities.

You will now be introduced to our protected Asian elephants in the project area, and your scenic elephant ride will begin. On this one-hour ride through the Nam Khan River and forest, take in a new perspective and the beauty of nature. Following that, a boat will take you to the breathtaking Tad Sae waterfalls’ cascades and pools. (The waterfall is dry between February and August.)

During your lunch break, relax and enjoy the refreshing cascades or our mountainous view terrace. Following a brief orientation, you will be immersed in life along the Nam Khan River. It will be a gentle 3-4 hour kayaking tour back into town, with only a few minor rapids (depending on the season). This is an option for inexperienced paddlers as well. There are village stops along the way, as well as a pickup service at the arrival point in Luang Prabang.
