Khiri Travel Laos is offering two- and three-day tours to join Tree Top Explorer in Paksong, southern Laos. This is your chance to sleep in the Jungle Hotel 10 metres above the ground in a tree house. During the day, ride the zip line for an adrenalin rush. ‘Fly’ over deep ravines almost within touching distance of the roaring water and the green roof of the trees.

Guests can also trek in pristine forest and through coffee plantations. Discover the hidden world of the forest canopy from a sky-high walkway. Experience the jaw dropping – but safe – via ferrata (cliff walkway with support cables).

All this takes place in the Dong Hua Sao mountain range, one of 20 National Protected Areas in Laos. The park spans over 1,100 sq km, half of it truly mountainous with steep to very steep slopes rising to the edge of the Bolaven Plateau at an elevation of around 1,000m. 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 300m.
