Full description
Start your half-day trip with pickup from your accommodation in Vang Vieng city center and transfer to the kayak starting point. Before kayaking experience begins, your guide will give you the basic paddle instructions and some history about the mighty Nam Song river. Glide over many small rapids and enjoy the scenery of the incredible mountain peaks along both sides of the river. Apart from the kayaking experience, you can also choose to partake in either the zip-lining experience or Tham Nam None cave tubing. If you choose the zip line option, you’ll experience the green forest canopy that covers the mountains on the side of the river. Make your way along a stream down to the zip line at the Tham None river bank. Take a short trek up to the hut on Phar None (sleeping wall). This is a great location for taking pictures of the surrounding mountains, and has a beautiful view of the Nam Song river. Get strapped in and take an exciting zip line ride flying over the green forest and river below. There are 6 lines in total for you to enjoy. If you choose the Tham Nam None Cave option, you can explore the secluded cave that served as a place of refuge for people caught up in the chaos of the Indochina Wars. Making your way into the cave by an inflatable tube, pull on a rope to reach the walking point where you’ll see many beautiful stalactites and stalagmites.

Abholung erfolgte 1/2 Stunde später- dachte schon die kommen garnicht -.Musste hinterher telefonieren … Wurde mit anderen zusammen gewürfelt die eine komplette Tagestour gebucht hatten. Es hieß dann plötzlich ich hätte nur Kajak gebucht und müsste für Zipline „wenn ich das jetzt unbedingt machen will „ nochmal extra bezahlen - ich habe das dann gemacht weil ich nun einmal Vorort war …aber letzende habe ich dann für Kajak und Zipline soviel bezahlt wie die anderen für eine komplette Tagestour mit Lunch usw - die Kajakfahrt war okay aber die letzte 1/2 Stunde wird es dann übertrieben touristisch da das Ufer mit chinesischen Bars gesäumt sind die extrem laute Musik spielen - nix mehr mit Natur Erlebnis ! Ich würde es nie wieder buchen !!!!!
