The Stunning Nature of Laos

September 15, 2017 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

When thinking of Laos, one of the first things that come to a traveler’s mind are probably the famous kind-hearted smile of Lao people, rural slow-paced life and beautiful temples. Laos is also rich for its nature reserves.

In this blog we present you a selection of stunning nature images of the ‘Land of a Million Elephants’.

Land-locked by Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, Lao terrain is predominantly made up of streams of forest mountains, consisting of the northern mountainous region, the hilly areas of the center and south, and the plains of the Mekong River.

Laos is also a country rich in abundant biodiversity. Its untouched wilderness bursts stunning 360-degree views of jungle forest, wild animals, pristine waterfalls and picturesque mountain villages where local life still remains in touch with the pace of nature.



Throughout the year, travelers can experience long and winding roads in both the northern and southern regions of the country. Traversing the country, travelers are rewarded with stunning mountain vistas, rice paddies bursting with neon green and waterfalls so full and powerful they make your knees quiver.

Laos’ national parks, wildlife sanctuaries and nature reserves make for unforgettable forest retreats in the country. Point your guests for example to our zip lining adventure spotting wild gibbons in the Bokeo Nature Reserve or this internationally recognized night safari.
