KAYAKING IN LUANG PRABANG
A soft river kayaking is what you will experience today.We start around 08:30AM from your hotel and will bring you up river into the Nam Khan river valley. Here you get instructions and equipment! Slowly paddle down the river and discover village life and wonderful countryside. Lush and green mountains are all around you while fishermen and young children will surround you from time to tim. The great Tad Sae Waterfalls which lie just along the way will welcome you with a fantastic swimming option. The great natural pools invite for a refreshing swim. Maybe you want to explore a little bit more, ask your guide to walk up the stream a little bit. (Tad Sae dry during Jan-Jul). After lunch you follow the stream down through some easy rapids. This trip ends in Luang Prabang where a small transfer brings you back into town.
Different lengths of the tour are available, so please talk to your guide before you leave to make sure you get what you have expected (the tour can be between 3-6 hrs. on river)
