This full day bike tour takes you to several destinations and the time spent in each destination can be flexible as per your request. You will be greeted at your hotel at around 8 AM and provided with a well-maintained mountain bike for the tour.
You start the tour by riding from the city center along the Mekong River and through local villages. On the way, you will stop at two traditional guild villages. First one is the village of Ban XiengLek – a village famous for weaving and making mulberry paper. After exploring this tiny village, we move on to the next village of Ban Xiang Hai, also known as Whiskey Village because it is well-known for producing Lao Lao rice whiskey.
Continuing on, you will stop at Pak Ou where the Nam Ou and Mekong River meet. Here, you can enjoy the fantastic views of incredible limestone cliffs rising from the rivers and the caves formed in the limestone landscape. You will then stop for a delicious lunch at a restaurant with an incredible view of both rivers and Pak Ou cave.
After lunch and a short rest, you will embark on a private longtail boat to cruise across the river to the holy Pak Ou Caves. You can see thousands of Buddha relics in both the lower and upper caves.
At the end of the day you get back on the boat to cruise to Luang Prabang. It’s time for you to relax and enjoy the scenic view of Mekong River. The boat ride takes about 1.5 hours to travel 25 km of the river. Upon your arrival in Luang Prabang, you cycle back to the bike shop and return your bike.
End of tour around 5 PM.
