What to do?
This part of the Bolaven Plateau is becoming more and more a sort of "waterfalls road". You may wish to visit some of them, such as:
- Tat Nyeuang Falls: located at village km 40 (Ban Lak Seesip), a few kilometers before the town of Paksong. This cascade is spectacular and here you can find few stalls selling cold drinks and some nicely located benches where it is possible to relax while looking at the surroundings. A natural pool under the waterfall is perfect for a refreshing swim.
- Tat Fan Falls: located a little before the Tat Nyeuang waterfall.
- Nongluang Falls: located at about 13 km from Paksong town. It is a recently open area inside the Dong Hua Sao NBCA and the local villagers, under the name of "The Nature's Heritage Conservation for Sustainable Development Group". This area is fascinating as you will find yourself immersed in a pristine forest on top of a mountain from where, on clear days, it is possible to see the shining Mekong river. Although walking to the waterfall (which runs through several stages) that is hidden deep in the forest is still a task for healthy people, most probably in the near future a more accommodating path will be built. Along the way you can see big rock formations shaped like a mushroom or, depending by the point of view, like a mythical Naga Head.
Accommodation on the plateau is limited, but Tad Lo Waterfall has a number of bungalows where you can enjoy trekking and elephant rides.
