Pakse & the Bolaven Plateau

Visit Pakse & the Bolaven Plateau


Coffee, rubber, tea, cardamom and durian fruit are among crops grown in the rich upland soils of the Bolaven Plateau, an important agricultural area that takes its name from a local ethnic group.

They are just one of a number of mainly animist tribes who live here, some of whom fled to the Bolaven during the bombing of the Ho Chi Minh Trail during the Vietnam War.

A number of towering waterfalls have formed where rivers run off the plateau, including the roaring 120-metre-high Tad Fan and the less visited, but equally enchanting Tad Yeung.

Trips to the villages and the falls can be arranged in Pakse, the region's unofficial capital and a good base from which to explore southern Laos in more detail.
