When to go
There’s no right or wrong time to visit the Bolaven Plateau.
The local waterfalls are more spectacular between July and October, which is the rainy season, whereas those visiting between October and February can observe and even participate in the local coffee harvest.
One of the best ways to get around is to rent a bicycle, scooter or motorbike in Pakse, follow a two or three-day circular itinerary, and spend the nights in local guesthouses or hotels.
Pakse-based Green Discovery Laos also offers a range of guided tours on the plateau, while Avis offers car rentals.
Bolaven.com offers information on accommodation, maps and suggested itineraries.
