Vientiane -> Ban Hatkhai -> Vientiane
We will be transferred from Vientiane to Ban Hatkhai, where a long-tail boat takes us up stream on the Nam Mang, before continuing along one of its tributaries, Houay Xai. A 2 hours trek passes through an evergreen canopy as we gain height. A picnic lunch is served on the way.
The magnificent pair of waterfalls Tad Xay and Pha Xay, particularly beautiful during and after the rainy season are reached in the afternoon. You have some free time at Tad Xay which has a pool recommended for bathing. From here, a truck takes the group to Ban Hatkhai, where the night is spent in a home-stay.
Approximately: 2.5 hour transfer, 1 hour boating & 1 hours trekking
