What to explore at Vieng Samay – Organic Farm – Tham Non Full Day tour?
We will transfer to ‘Viengsamay’ a village around 10 km north of Vang Vieng. After an introduction to the basics of kayaking we shall set off down the beautiful Nam Song river which offers various small but fun rapids along the way to our first stop at Tham Sim cave. Here we will walk up to the massive theater like cave which is full of impressive stalagmites, stalactites and bats!
After emerging from the cave a short trek over a pass leads us to a picnic spot on the riverside where we shall enjoy lunch. After lunch we shall continue down the river until the next stop at the Organic Farm where mulberry tea and a variety of different fruit wines are produced.
Vang-Vieng-1-Day-Tour-3Continuing on down stream we arrive at Tham None Cave which is one of the largest caves in Vang Vieng! It served as a bomb shelter for local villagers during the Second Indochina War. However, today it is home to a bat family and the 'Magic Stone of Vang Vieng'. The final leg of the journey is a gentle paddle downstream to Vang Vieng where we shall arrive just in time to catch the sunset.
Approximately: 15minutes transfer, 4.5 hours (wet season) 2hours (dry season) kayaking, 1.5 hour caving/walking
