Southern Laos White Water Adventure
An exciting white water adventure in the heart of Dong Hua Sao National Park
Explore the dense jungles of Dong Hua Sao
Paddle through exciting rapids
Kayak past stunning waterfalls, cascading into the river
Paddle down the Houay Bang Lieng River through dense forests, past towering waterfalls and through several areas of exciting rapids.
What Will You Do
We depart from Pakse and head south passing through massive rubber plantations until we reach a small village. We take a short walk down the hill from the village, to the river bank. Here our guides will give a safety briefing and some paddling instructions before we begin paddling downstream through jungle.
We kayak down multiple sets of exciting rapids. Continuing on through the rapids we pass an impressive waterfall cascading into the river. We carry on downstream until we stop to enjoy a picnic lunch of local Lao food. We will have our lunch on the river bank, opposite a towering waterfall which springs out of the deep jungle, cascading down into the river below.
After swimming and relaxing we start paddling downstream again. Along the way we pass through some beautiful scenery and will likely see some local people fishing and children playing in the river. In the late afternoon we arrive at our end point and return back to Pakse in time for sunset.
Approximately 1 hour walking, 40 minutes transfer and 5 hours kayaking

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.
