    Nestled in a valley bordering Vietnam and Cambodia, you will love the raw wilderness of Attapeu province. Explore the hidden network of rivers and waterfalls. Trek through two of South East Asia’s last great, protected forests, Dong Ampham and Xe Pian. Much of this great natural land is untouched and pristine, home to hundreds of rare species of birds and animals.

    Visit the Ho Chi Minh Trail and see the remnants of a Russian surface-to-air missile and cluster bombs. Visit remote ethnic villages, survivors of the massive American bombing during the war. A proliferation of unexploded ordnance (UXO) still remains so travel with local guides is essential.

    Spend time with the local ethnic tribes including the Talieng, Ta Oy, Alak and Lavae peoples. Visit their villages to see traditional ways of life that have existed, unchanged, for hundreds of years. Witness the creation of their unique and diverse artefacts, such as the Talieng peoples’ weaving, bamboo baskets, bows and arrows and jewellery, and the ancient art of pottery making. Explore the animism and shamanism rituals of the Ta Oy, the woodworking of the Lavae, and the exquisite sin (traditional Lao skirt) weaving of the matriarchal Alak peoples.
