National Protected Areas & Wildlife in Khammouane Province, Laos

Of Khammouane Province's total land area of 16.135 square kilometers, 6.295 (39%) belongs to three interconnected National Protected Areas (NPA) : the Nakai Nam Theun, Phou Hin Poun and Hin Namno. The Nakai Nam Teun NPA (353.200 ha) is considered one of the most biologically important areas in the world, with three of the world's last five recently discovered or re-discovered large mammals found there, including the Saola, Giant Muntjac and Indochinese Warty Pig. Nakai consists of sandstone formations, a complex range of habitats and mountainous elevations ranging from 500-2.200 m.

The heart of the Nakai Nam Teun can be accessed from Route 8B. The Phou Hin Poun NPA (150.000 ha) is the most accessible of the three NPA's with easy access from Thakhaek town or from Ban Na Hin on Route 8.

There are a host of ecotourism activities including trekking, rafting, kayaking and caving in Phou Hin Poun. This NPA is characterized by its karst limestone mountains and many caves, the largest being the 7.5 km Konglor Cave. The Hin Namno NPA (82.000 ha), least accessible of the three parks, also has dramatic limestone escarpments and caves and is the location where the Central Indochina Limestone meets the Annamite Chain. Hin Namno can be reached by taking Highway 12 to Muang Boualapha.
