Zip Line Rush

Khiri Travel Laos is offering two and three-day Lao adventure tours to join “Tree Top Explorer” in Paksong, the coffee growing capital city on the Bolaven Plateau of southern Laos. This is your chance to sleep in a jungle hotel ten meters above the ground in a towering but comfortable tree house. During the day, your clients are in for the ride of their life or at least a huge adrenalin rush with a euphoric ride on the zip line careening (safely!) over the forest canopy. Other sections of the zip line adventure allow your intrepid travelers to “fly” over deep ravines almost within touching distance of some roaring white water and the dense jungle treetops.

 

More Alpine Thrills 

For another Lao adventure tour option, your clients can also enjoy and energetic trek through pristine forest and coffee plantations. Visitors to this part of Lao can also discover the hidden world of the forest canopy from a sky-high walkway. If your client’s enjoyed the zip line, they can try the via ferrata, another jaw-dropping (but safe!) walkway along the face of a rock cliff using support cables. The operators and guides are all trained and experienced in this mountain experience from Europe.

 

Lao National Protected Areas

All this takes place in the Dong Hua Sao mountain range, one of twenty National Protected Areas in Laos. The park spans over 1,100 square kilometers, half of it truly mountainous with steep to very steep slopes rising to the edge of the Bolaven Plateau at an elevation of around 1,000 meters. Some peaks near the plateau rim rise up to almost 1,300m. The other half of the park is lowland with rolling hills and elevations from 100 to 300 meters.
