Learn about the colonial history of Laos

This one day sightseeing tour takes us to the 4000 Islands in the southern tip of Laos. We visit the French Colonial Bridge at Don Det Island, the Somphamit gorge of Don Kone Island, and visit Irrawaddy dolphin statue, and the amazing Khonephapheg Waterfalln.


What Will You Do

We leave Pakse and travel to a small village where we board a boat passing Don Det. To Don Khone islands. We start cycling around the island to visit the old bridge and river embankment, both built during the colonial French period. We can relax and spend some time watching local fishermen on the Mekong, while we learn about the role that fishing plays in Lao culture. We then ride to the thundering Somphamit Waterfall and stop for lunch at a local restaurant.

In the afternoon we travel by boat to see the Irrawaddy dolphins statue. Along the way we will passed by the rainforest area. Another short boat trip brings us to a small border town, where we will find our van waiting to take us to the amazing waterfall of Khonephapheng. From here we will return to Pakse, or you can request to be dropped off at the Lao/Cambodian border.

Our water policy

Help us to become 100% single use plastic free company!  

We try to avoid plastic as much as possible, that is why we encourage you to bring your own refillable bottle.
We have water refillable station at our office where you can fill up your bottle.  If you don’t have one we sell the 0,75 L Green Discovery aluminium bottles at our sales office.  At the moment we will still need to use plastic bottles in some of our tours but we hope to reduce it as much as possible. Together with The Green Discovery Sustainability Fund we are working on installing water filters in all the villages we are visiting and we hope in the future we will not need to use plastic bottles anymore.

Still not suit you?

We can tailor make your perfect experience
