Vientiane Day Trip by Bike Including Tad Moon Waterfall
"At 9.00 we will begin cycling out of the city. We shortly cycle along the Mekong River where you can enjoy the beautiful views across the river and into neighboring Thailand. From the Ban Tong village we continue along the canal which takes its source from the nearby Mekong River and is used to irrigate nearby rice paddy fields. As we carry on cycling despite the relative close proximity to the bustling city you will certainly feel like you are a mill the trail can get a little muddy and sandy along the way but really takes us away from everything and will immerse us in nature. Along the way we may see the local people tending to their rice paddy fields depending on the time of the year the trail leads us back to a tarmac road we head along the road for a while until arriving at Tad Moon waterfall which is a popular spot for the local people from Vientiane the waterfall itself can actually completely dry up during the dry season however it is still worth a visit to see the different rock formations
From $85.00
