Enjoy the new perspective and the amazing nature on this 1 hr. elephant ride. A stunning landscape, quietness, and the lush nature are the ingredients for your relaxed stay on the back of the protected elephant. You will make your way through small forests and ride through the Nam Khan River. Afterwards a boat will bring you to the Tad Sae waterfalls (dried out between February and August). At the waterfall or the river you can hang out for some swimming and bathing in the refreshing cool water.
A Lao style lunch will be served either on the magnificent waterfalls or on the mountain view veranda of the Elephant Village.
The soft half day trekking (about 3-4 hrs.) will lead you out into a Khmu village where you get an insight in every day life and culture of this hill tribe. The village is nestled on the foot of a big mountain range. Most of the people here are farmers and fishermen and live from their traditional way of agriculture. They even speak a different language here and your guide will help to ask questions. This village Trek is part of the 'Fair Trek' Project which supports seven villages in the area. It is a cooperation between authorities, the villages and the operating tour company.
