Ride a bike through the Southern Lowlands from Pakse down to the Cambodian Border before heading north and then east to the fertile lands of the coffee rich Bolevan Plateau



      This biking sojourn goes through the Southern Lowlands from Pakse down to the Cambodian Border before heading north and then east to the fertile lands of the coffee rich Bolevan Plateau. Starting in Ubon Ratchatani, we cross the border at Chongmek and ride to the ancient site of Wat Phu situated in Champasak province where we visit pre-angkorian temples. Cruising down the Mekong River visiting Si Phan Don or 4000 Islands as it is more commonly known. We ride quiet country roads to the Khan Phapeng waterfalls and then onwards to the bottom of Don Kon to search for the elusive Irrawaddy Dolphins. Climbing along lush vegetation, we reach the Bolevan Plateau for 2 nights before heading west back to Pakse. 

      We cover nearly 500 kilometres in 7 cycling days and much of the terrain is quite flat except for the days up on the plateau. The road surfaces are mixed: most days we ride on reasonably good quality asphalt roads, but there are enough rides on dirt tracks to mean you will need a mountain bike with front shocks. There is nothing technical involved on this tour and anyone, assuming they are fit enough, will be able to join no matter how little cycling experience they have. This trip is fully supported and is stacked with local fruit, snacks, ice water and drinks.
