Laos’ 18 provinces present a diverse natural and cultural landscape with a myriad of ecotourism activities.

 The Khammouane Provincial Tourism Department has begun promoting "The Loop", a flexible 400-plus-km circuits that starts and ends in Thakhaek, and allows you to set the pace when taking in the provincial highlights.

 Explore the mountains and forests of Laos on a 1- to 3-day trek or longer, and visit remote ethnic villages, journey to hidden waterfalls and caves, spot birds and other wildlife and investigate ruins of ancient civilizations.
