We take a short ride to the That Thong waterfall where we start our soft adventure trek to the hidden valley retreat. Take your time to explore the forest and the rarely visited protected area with your guide on small trails. After a decent uphill walk you will meet villagers in the Khamu village. Learn more about the rural life in this small Lao community, and rest for a while. After the village visit, we take another short hike and arrive at the small resort for a Lao style lunch beside the pool or in the garden.
Take your time to rest in your room or take another short walk to the viewpoint on the hill, where you can see the Mekong and Luang Prabang on a clear day. Dinner is served at the small restaurant or in the lush gardens.

After your time at the falls, we provide transfer to the new Lao Buffalo dairy that produces cheese and a range of delicious dairy products. The diary provides income and a sustainable future for the Lao people involved. Learn how to milk a Buffalo, cuddle a Buffalo for the perfect selfie and try some incredible ice cream.
