Your tour experience begins with a transportation service pick up from your accommodation between 8.15am to 9am. We will drive towards the south to Kuang Si waterfall, about 35km from Luang Prabang. At the waterfall, enjoy hiking around the forest/jungle area, see the bear sanctuary and swim in the waterfall.
Visit a small Hmong village on the way to Smile Elephant Riverside restaurant where we will have buffet style lunch. After that, you will be greeted by the elephants and you will be able to feed them with sugar cane or banana. Watch the elephants taking a bath and then say goodbye to them.
We are going to continue the trip with a boat ride downstream on the Mekong to explore locals' lifestyle along the riverside. We will stop at 2 villages: Ban Xang Hai (whisky handmade from sticky rice) and Ban Muang Kham (handmade Mekong river weed or Khai Pain). After that, we will ride further again and see the sunset on the way back to Luang Prabang.
