Description: Ban Kiet Ngong Village, popular for its elephant rides and treks to Phou Asa Mountain, makes small carvings and sculptures of elephants and other items for sale to visitors. These pieces are nice souvenirs and are entirely handmade and crafted in the village. Also made in the village are traditional Lao tables made from natural rattan and bamboo. One can see the table being made at some select houses by taking a short walk around the village. For directions on how to visit the village refer to the map. You can also book a tour through a major tour company. Villagers ask that visitors contact the village ahead of time to arrange elephant rides and treks either through the Provincial Tourism Office in Pakse or through a major tour company.
