Buffalo Tour – 10 Days

Our “buffalo tour at chicken price” is an alternative for those that wish to experience a truly extreme and challenging motorcycle adventure during their time in Laos. This tour is not for the faint at heart, as most days will be spent riding to the next destination.

Didn’t we just cross this river? Incredible boat ride upriver

Routes are planned with rest stops in mind, but there is very little “down time” during this extreme adventure tour overall. Guests that choose this option will be rewarded with experiences that are rarely obtained by the typical motorcycle traveler. Dinner served on your very own private jungle beach; be a guest in the home of a local village chief in a military encampment; travel by long tail boat on remote rivers surrounded by high canyon walls; traverse high mountain jungle passes used as trading routes by local villagers before road construction opens them to traffic of the 4 wheeled type. All of these gems await the savvy traveler that wishes to push himself and his bike to the very limits of adventure motorcycle touring in Laos. Still interested? read on…….

Day 1: Depart Vientienne for an easy orientation ride to the village of Sanakham.

Day 2: Depart Sanakham for a long days trip to the high mountain village of Kasi.

Day 3: Depart Kasi for a leisurely ride to Luang Prabang. Here we will have a chance to stretch our legs and relax a little. The second half of our day will be spent soaking up the river and rays and the ever incredible Tad Sae Waterfalls.

Day 4: Depart Luang Prabang for a long days ride to the village of Don Kham. Here we will board our very own long tail boats which will carry us halfway downriver in order to set camp for the night. Dinner will be served on our very own private jungle beach, where we will camp under the stars and enjoy the sounds of the jungle as we fall into a deep slumber after a very taxing day. Priceless….

Dinner, anyone?

Day 5: Awake early to board our boats and continue on toward Pak Vang, where we will enjoy a hot breakfast served by the villagers. From there we will continue on to the town of Phonsavan, home of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Plain of Jars. Here we will be treated to a personal tour of the best and most secret sites, as this is the home base of L.A.R.A. and town of our founders birth, Mr. Kong. There isn’t a better guide around than the first English speaking guide in the province!!!

Day 6: Today we will be treated to a personal tour of the best and most secret sites in Phonsavan, as this is the home base of L.A.R.A. and town of our founders birth, Mr. Kong. There isn’t a better guide around than the first English speaking guide in the province!!! After having seen our fill, the group will depart for historic town of Mouang Khoume to visit the Shattered Buddha, and then on to Thatom. For many, this will begin the most challenging terrain on offer…..Ready steady…….

Day 7: Depart Thatom for our welcoming into a private military encampment, in Namkading, where we will be the guests of honor in their homes. This is a protected area and we will be staying with the trustees of this area that work hard to prevent poachers and loggers from taking over these pristine wildlife areas.

Day 8: After saying kind farewells to our hosts, we will then travel through the jungle and mountains to the village of Tha Bak for a little bit of luxury. A hot shower and soft bed await you this evening.
