Trekking in the Phou Xieng Thong National Protected Area, Champassak Province

The one-day trek is led by knowledgeable local guides who will teach you about medicinal plants and orchids and show you some of the mountain's magnificent volcanic rocky outcrops and cliffs. This location is accessible by boat only. Due to its remote location, overnight homestay in Ban Mai Singsamphan village is necessary.
