ITINERARY

Depart from Vientiane early in the morning for a 1.5 hour drive to your starting point. The Orchid Trek will lead you through Phou Khao Kway national park, one of the closest national parks to Vientiane. The terrain is filled with waterfalls, rugged mountains, gorges, and sandstone cliffs. The park is home to more than 50% of the wild orchid species of Laos and a variety of different plants. Likewise, Phou Khao Kway is home to a diverse animal population, including wild elephants.
Start walking from Pha Xay where you will enjoy a beautiful view on the waterfalls. Trek through the varied landscape of bamboo forests, evergreen forests, rainforest, and open air fields immersing yourself in the park’s natural beauty. Along the way you may see some orchids and spot indigenous wildlife. Your guide will know the best spots for wild orchid growth and if you are fortunate enough to spot many plants, you will be amazed at the vibrant colors and shapes of these elusive flowers.
Stop for a picnic lunch alongside a river bank. Soak in the tranquility of the area and keep an eye out for the beautiful butterfly species that flutter about.
Resume your walk, continue toward Tad Xay waterfall. The water cascades down seven levels and is a great place for swimming or a rest before ending your trek and transferring back to Vientiane.
En route you can stop at the interesting Dong Mak Kai market which hosts a range of interesting foods on offer, including ant eggs and insects for the very brave!
Return to Vientiane around 17:30. End of service.
NOTES:
· Please consider that wild orchids are rare plants, even in national park! Most of them blooming one time a year and just a few days, some just appear in rainy season, but there is some blooming every month, the pick is January to June.
· Trekking difficulty level: 2-3, moderate.
