There is more than one agent offering the 100 Waterfall Tour at similiar prices but we opted to go on the Tiger Trails tour as they created the original infrastructure and are actively involved in supporting Ban Don Khoun village by using local guides, boats and paying a significant proportion of the fee we paid to the community.
This was one of our best activity days in the month we spent in Laos. We had 2 hours on the river, time in the local village Don Khoun, a chance to sup locally distilled Lao Lao as well as a very well guided walk over the rice fields and up through 100 cascades to finally be refreshed by an awesome cascade at the top with banana wrapped rice for lunch.
A group of six, we were looked after by 3 guides who made sure we were fed, watered and rested along the way as well as supported to climb and descend in wet conditions. The guides showed us how to whistle using leaves, to create a simple flute from bamboo and shot glasses for the Lao-Lao. We ended the day in the Pak Thoun caves a recent addition to the attractions in the area. A refuge for local people during The Secret War in 60s/70s it was used as a hospital, was hit by a bomb which destroyed the Buddha altar just inside the cave. We slept really well after worthwhile exertion
