What Will You Do
We leave from Pakse with a bus to a small village where we board a local boat which takes us down the mighty Mekong as it winds its way through the 4000 Islands. We travel through some beautiful scenery until arriving at Don Khon Island. On Don Khon Island we walk to the old French train and the amazing Liphi waterfall. At the waterfall we take a short walk above the falls where we enjoy lunch together amongst some beautiful surroundings! After lunch we begin kayaking down the Mekong to an area near the Cambodian border. Here we will have the chance to see the critically endangered Irrawaddy Dolphins. After spending some time to try and spot the dolphins we paddle onwards to the border with Cambodia where you will be picked up by bus to visit Konephapheng Waterfall, the widest waterfall in all of South East Asia.

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.
