1 Day 4000 Islands Tour
Our van leaves at 8:00 am from Pakse, and travel for about 2 hours to Nakasang village. From here we take a boat to Don Det island, which takes nearly 20 minutes. We continue our trip by either walking or cycling around the island to visit the old bridge and river embankment, both built during the colonial French period. Enjoy watching local fishermen during their work on the Mekong! We proceed to visit the thundering Somphamit waterfall and stop for lunch at a local restaurant nearby.
In the afternoon we go further south for approximately 20 minutes by boat to see one of the world’s rarest mammal species, the Irrawaddy Dolphins. Let’s spend some time here for watching the dolphins and for relaxing. Another 30 minutes boat ride brings us to the small border town Veun Kham, where we will find our van waiting to take us to the amazing and largest waterfall in Southeast Asia, Khonephapheng. We will return to Pakse, which takes about 2½ hours, or you may drop off at the Lao/Cambodian border checkpoint.
