Golden Triangle Circuit

Though boats motor up the Mekong to the Golden Triangle, the 50-km river-road presents easy access with great views of the Mekong’s rocky islands. The road heads northwest from Houei Xai, and then south to the 1,000-year-old city of Souvannakhomkham.

The first stop is a massive headless Buddha image about 6 km south of the Nam Kan River. Next, a 15-minute drive leads to Ban Done That’s Souvannakhomkham Visitor Center and its pottery and stone relics. From here, a short trail heads to an ancient 7-meter-tall Buddha image, one of Laos’ largest. Continue to Mokachok Village and Don Sao Island at the Golden Triangle’s core.

On the ride back, stop at Nang Peng’s in Ban Nam Keung for what many call the country’s best khao soi noodle soup. Then visit the village’s Bokeo Social Enterprise (BsE) and view locals processing sugar and their Ethnobotanical Garden displaying and teaching about traditional herbal medicines. (under construction in 2010).

Continue for 7 km to Viengxai, and turn left to Pa Na Village and the Nam Nyon Waterfalls. The road gets rough at Lao Leuang Village, leaving 6 km of bumps to the cascade rushing into a calm pool suitable for a swim.

Return to the river road and continue 6 km to a gold-plated princess, sculpted into a boulder at a rest stop just before Pak Ngao Village.

Getting There: Rent a motorbike, or hire a song taew or tuk-tuk with driver for the day. For the Mekong cruise, hire a long-tail boat at the pier.
