Meg & Eliza (the 2 English women I used to be touring with) and myself had rented our motos, and commenced our journey on the “bolaven plateau loop” in Pakse Laos. Nicely, I ought to say that solely me and Eliza rented moto’s. Meg was going to hire one, however whereas within the strategy of educating her methods to experience one, she realized she was not up for the problem. You must have seen her face as she tried to be taught; it was hilarious. Pure terror. So she hopped on the again of my scooter, and we started our journey.
We rode 50 KM to the small city of Paksong, and acquired checked into our resort. Upon getting into the city, we noticed a carnival that was occurring, and determined to test it out.
It was a very cool carnival with totally different video games, playing, dwell music, and meals stalls.
Whereas we have been consuming, we have been approached by some fellow vacationers. One in every of them really had been residing in Laos for over two years, and began his personal non-profit group and occasional firm referred to as Jhai Espresso Home.
We sat there and chatted for awhile concerning the initiatives he had labored on, after which started giving us ideas for our upcoming journey. He ended up telling us about these waterfalls that have been really two hours out of the best way of our route, however after exhibiting up some footage, I knew we needed to go.
Tad Tayicseua Waterfalls
We awakened early the subsequent morning, stopped by the Espresso Store for the most effective cups of java I’ve had in awhile, and commenced our moto journey to the waterfalls.
Once we acquired there, I didn’t notice how simply it was set-up. There are literally seven waterfalls surrounding this space, and you’ll entry all of them simply by parking on the prime.
We solely had time to go to 3 of them, however they have been all fairly superior.
Honest warning: should you come right here, anticipate to do a good quantity of climbing and trekking by way of the jungle. I used to be not anticipating that in any respect, and needed to harness my interior hobbit and do all of it barefoot (as a result of my sandals have been too flimsy). It’s not probably the most intense climbing you’ll do, nevertheless it does get fairly intense at occasions.
After a a number of hours of climbing and exploring the waterfalls, and swimming within the lakes, we continued our journey again to Pakse, however with a pair stops alongside the best way.
General, it was a tremendous day crammed with lovely surroundings, and actually made me surprise why I had not made a visit to Laos earlier than. It’s such a tremendous nation with a lot to supply, together with all this waterfall porn. Take a look at the little video I made from our time exploring the Bolaven Plateau on a moto.
