Nam Ngum Lake

  • Destinations: Vientiane
  • Duration: 1 day
  • Type: Daytrips, River Cruise

After breakfast, we head out of the city and make our way to Nam Ngum Lake, a huge reservoir created by damming the Nam Ngum River. We’ll stop over at Ban Keun, which is famous for its salt extraction plant and a village that distills the local Lao whiskey. On arrival at Nam Ngum Lake, after having lunch at local restaurant, we embark on a long tail boat visiting fishing villages in the various islets, and then take a short walk to explore the lifestyle of the local fishermen. On the way back to Vientiane, if time permits, perhaps you might want to experience gambling at the legal Lao casino located in the valley where you can also enjoy a beautiful view of the lake. We return to Vientiane by late evening.
