Description

PROGRAM:
Pakse -> Katouat -> Tat Nyeaung Waterfall -> Pakse
We leave Pakse in the morning and head to the highlands of the Bolaven Plateau. Passing the Plateau’s capital Paksong, we drive to the village Katouat. On the way to the village we will pass rice paddies, small rivers and of course coffee plantations. The village, which rarely sees tourists, is located in a beautiful setting with a viewpoint overlooking the whole plateau as far as Pakse and the Mekong Valley.
Many families of the village are coffee farmers who work with the AGPC.
We join the farmers for their work on the plantations where we learn how to pick the coffee cherries. The harvesting is done by hand, and only the ripe cherries are picked. With a full basket of cherries we return to the village’s coffee factory where the coffee is pulped, fermented and washed. We will enjoy lunch with the villagers before we will take the beans to be dried by the sun, which takes up to 25 days depending on the weather. We will see how the dried beans are hulled to become the green beans, which are then sold to France, Germany and Japan. As the last step in the production chain, we roast and grind the green beans – to finally enjoy a delicious cup of the freshest coffee!
In the early afternoon, we will head back towards Pakse and stop by the beautiful waterfall Tat Nyeaung, where we can relax and enjoy a refreshing swim. On the way back to Pakse, we visit a tea factory where we observe how the tea, which is grown in the Plateau, is processed. We return to Pakse around 6pm.
