EXO Travel Explores The Caves, Jungles, Rivers And Ruins Of Laos

February 25, 2019 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email


EXO Travel, Asia’s leading destination management company, today announced an insider tour that reveals hidden gems amidst Laos’ rugged and remote terrain. Travelling east across the country from Vientiane through Khammouane Province, this tour showcases spectacular caves and protected biodiversity zones. The 10-day Khammouane Caves  Exploration launches from Vientiane, stopping first in Phou Hin Poun National Protected Area for a river expedition through the stunning Kong Lor Cave. In adjacent Nakai – Nam Theun National Protected Area, a river safari and camping experience immerse travellers in one of Laos’ most richly biodiverse zones, where they can hope to spot rare, endangered wildlife.

In the mythologised Xe Bang Cave, another river expedition exposes impressive limestone formations, while a local guide explains its spiritual significance. Along the Ho Chi Minh Trail, a meeting with a Vietnam War survivor paints an affecting picture of this serene locale with his personal recollections of the war.

Then, head south of Laos on the meandering Mekong River where the focus shifts to prehistoric times with a trip to a dinosaur museum. Farther south, travellers wander ruins from the Khmer Empire at Vat Phou, and trace French-colonial history through the architecture of Champasak.

“Laos often gets overlooked in favour of Thailand, Vietnam or Cambodia, though the country is abundant in natural and historic gems,” says Ruben Derksen, Director of Product and Marketing at EXO Travel. “This tour takes travellers on a unique and unforgettable tour encompassing adventure, nature and history in some of Laos most beautiful ‘hidden’ locales.”

The tour’s highlights include:

  • A longtail-boat expedition through Kong Lor Cave
  • A river tour through the vast and legendary Xe Bang Cave
  • Personal recollections of the Vietnam War from a survivor
  • Rare wildlife-spotting in two of Laos’ National Protected Areas
