Guidetrip.com Guided Tour Description

The Tree Top Explorer is a jungle adventure in the mountains of Champassak province in southern Laos. It blends fun with a real nature experience, it opened early 2011 and has quickly become a 'must-go destination' which is guaranteed to exceed even the most optimistic expectations! It promises the combination of being truly and amazingly exciting whilst of course strictly adhering to international safety standards, without any compromise!

The Tree Top Explorer is supported by the World Tourism Organization and The International Union for the Conservation of Nature for its environment friendly approach and the involvement of local communities, the project aims to boost Laos tourism diversification and work in co-operation with the local communities to help preserve the local wildlife.

The venue can only be reached by foot, a trek which takes you through coffee plantations and lush forest where there are no cars, no noise and no fumes! The main attraction is a system of zip-lines which traverse steep gorges where you will 'fly' past waterfalls at touching distance and 'fly' through the tree tops in a manner as close to a monkey as anyone will get! The canopy walkway gives the visitor the chance to see the forest from a completely different and usually elusive angle.

Take the chance and be assured of having great fun in a simply stunning environment whilst also being happy in the knowledge that you are genuinely helping the people and wildlife of Laos.

Day 1: 

We arrive at Ban Nongluang after a 1 hour drive from Pakse, stroll for a while through the village and chat with the people. The village guides who will accompany us for the next three days give important first safety instructions. We then hike through coffee plantations and vegetable gardens until wild semi-evergreen forest gradually takes over. The trail winds down for a while, sometimes quite steeply, passing ravines, beautiful waterfalls and flower-studded plateaus. Along the way, the guides explain the plants traditionally used in the village kitchen or as herbal medicine.

A breath-taking canopy walkway high in the trees and crossing a steep river valley is a first challenge. We pass the huge 'Tiger' waterfall and reach the giant 'Kamet' fall (name of a monkey), where the water plunges more than 100 m down into a relatively narrow, densely forested valley basin with waterfalls apparently everywhere. Here is where the zip-lines start and the real thrill takes its course. Brace yourself for an adventure of a lifetime!.

We take our lunch in the wilderness, explore the forest secrets of the area and may take a cooling swim before mastering the unbelievable zip-lines. The cables crisscross the valley in front of the majestic water wall, stunningly high and us perfectly cooled by the spray of the water. Enjoy the sensation of being weightless and truly one with nature. Let your adrenaline rush come to a maximum. It's joy, sheer joy!.

After a day of great activity, we finally settle for the night in the wonderful camp with restaurant nearby. For dinner, local food and absolutely delicious barbecues are on the menu. Chatting and recollecting the gorgeous experiences of the day, or just relaxing and dreaming under the stars about the incredible wonders of life, we finally retire into our own tree house almost 10 m above ground. These houses designed in traditional style, made of wood, bamboo, and grass, can only be reached by -- a zip-line. Bathrooms near the restaurant offer hot and cold water. An instant cozy sleep shrouded by the fiddling sound of the forest crickets is guaranteed.

Day 2: 

It's a day of more challenges, but also a day of saying 'goodbye'! After breakfast, we slowly trek uphill, passing a section of forest where gigantic trees dominate, obviously not yet spotted by illegal loggers?

Then it gets a bit tough and jaw-dropping when the trail suddenly "ends" at a steep rock wall, only passable on a 'via ferrata', where iron U-bolts are glued into the rock. There's no way of getting around but to overcome this obstacle in order to get to the other side. Don't worry, it's all safe and you are secured by state-of-the-art safety gear. It's not really long either, just thrilling.

Upon reaching the top of the mountain, one of the highest peaks in the area, an open plateau rewards everyone for all the 'hardship' ? and for a last time ? with stunning views of three waterfalls and vistas over the Mekong deep into neighboring Thailand. We'll take our lunch here before an easy 1? hour hike back to Ban Nongluang, where a car is waiting to bring us to Pakse.

Our tour of the Pakse was totally unforgettable. Our guide was friendly and informative, but not overbearing, and let us have the experience as a couple for the most part. She took tons of pictures so we can relive the magic whenever we\'d like. The tour was efficient, but also allowed us time to enjoy and we never felt rushed. I would 100% recommend this to anyone!
