It’s time to get up and go!
Vang Vieng is a beautiful, colorful place where you can kayak down the Nam Song River, see the unique limestone formations, explore caves and learn about local history.
This tour combines all of the activities that Vang Vieng is famous for. You’ll start off at Khmu village and meet the locals, who will give you an introduction to kayaking. After that, you’ll tackle your first various small but fun rapids on the Song river on the way to Nam Song cave.
The Nam Song Cave is a large cave system located in the Phu Sang National Park, in the Khammouane Province of Laos. It is one of the largest caves in Southeast Asia, with an area of over 2,500 square kilometers.
The cave contains a river and its surrounding environment has been described by scientists as having “a jungle-like atmosphere.” The cave was discovered by geologists in 1976 and it was explored for the first time by speleologists from France and Laos between 1977 and 1981.
This cave cuts straight through the mountain, so one emerges on the other side of the range for some panoramic view of the Nam Keung Valley.
Nam Keung Valley is a valley in the North Eastern region of Vietnam. It is famous for its natural beauty and the diversity of its wildlife. The valley was created by the Nam Keung River, a tributary of the Red River that flows through it. The river is one of the deepest in Vietnam, with rapids and waterfalls along its course. The Nam Keung Valley is home to many species of birds, mammals and reptiles including wild elephants, tigers and bears.
The trek back over the small pass leads up to a Lao style picnic lunch served on river bank. The next stop is at an organic farm where mulberry tea and fruit wines are produced. Then you’ll kayak down the river by winding rapids we’ll stop at two bars. There is a ripe swing and a zip wire bar where you can jump to river! None cave lies further down stream.
