8:00AM: We pick you up from Stung Treng & travel north by car (approximately 1:30 hour) to a small village where we will board a boat and head upriver to a rocky stretch of river distinguished by its deep-water pools and numerous islands. to survey Sopheakmet Waterfall, that thwarted the grand designs of French imperialists (and which now mark the Lao border). It depends on the water level to see the waterfall. During the dry season, we can access to the unexplored falls by boat whereas, during the wet season, we must stop the boat and continue by a walk-through forests and road for about 3.5km in return to visit the mighty Mekong falls. Later in the afternoon, we can take the boat across the river to visit Hang Khone, which is the southernmost tip of Laos. The French used this as a ferry port where goods were then transferred back to the ferry by train before they continued their travel by river. Sunset here is some of the most beautiful sunsets across the Mekong River.
