Day 1 – Southern Laos Kayaking Excursion: Pakse Kayaking tour – Houay Deua – Don Deng Kayaking trip
Departing from Pakse, we drive for about 20 minutes to Ban Houay Deua. After a brief orientation, we embark on kayaks on the Mekong River along the rim of the mountain of Phou Salao and Nang Malong. We will witness the daily lives of villagers along the river.
We’ll kayak to a village temple built by villagers. Upon getting above this temple on the hill, we will have a panoramic view of Sipandone (4000 islands) and surrounding high mountains. After lunch, we kayak down the river, passing some small rapids. After arriving in Don Deng, we can play on the sandy beach (volleyball, football/soccer, etc) in Hat Don Deng.
We can notice the distant mountain range in the west and the natural Linga, a phallus-like rock associated with the Wat Phou Temple complex. We stay overnight in the village on Don Deng Island. Home-stay and eco-lodge are both available.
