Khone Phapheng Waterfall
Just 13 kilometres from the Cambodian border and east of Don Khon on the Mekong River is the pearl of the Mekong, Khone Phapheng Waterfall. Here the Mekong Cascades across a wide fault line, which slopes in a curvilinear pattern and causes the river to pass through with awesome power. Khone Phapheng is the largest waterfall by water volume in due to its great power and steep descent, the waterfall renders this area of the Mekong unnavigable, before flowing peacefully south into Cambodia and Vietnam.
How to get there: From Pakse take Route 13 South 150 km, turning right off the highway at the sign pointing to Khone Phapheng. Not far down this road you will see another sign pointing to Khone Phapheng, where you must turn left. Follow the road to the end of the waterfall.
