Itinerary

Meet your guide early morning to get fitted on one of Tiger Trail’s quality mountain bikes. We’ll ride from the city to our first stop at Wat Pa Phon Phao, a forest temple with a great view of Luang Prabang.

Follow the paved road further through teakwood forests and rice fields along the Nam Khan River to visit the resting spot of Henri Mouhot.

The highlight is elephant riding in the stunning landscape with a background of jungle covered mountains and you’ll enjoy lunch in a beautiful setting. Take a boat ride to visit the Tad Sae Waterfall for a refreshing swim (August through January) or to a short jungle walk with visit to a baby elephant in the jungle (February through July).

After a short return boat ride, continue biking through beautiful scenery on a new path return to Luang Prabang.
