Here’s a glimpse into all that awaits you in Laos
Rescue Asiatic black bears from the wildlife trade | Zipline through the jungle canopy | Meditate with monks in a monastery | Teach English to local children & build sustainable infrastructure | Explore the rugged mountainous landscape | Immerse yourself in the village of Sop Chem
Wake up early to take part in the world famous Alms Ceremony, a Buddhist tradition of waking up before dawn to provide monks with fresh food for the day. After breakfast, take part in the ultimate cultural orientation by discussing Buddhist culture and practices with local monks! Monks will then teach us about the ancient practice of meditation and lead us in a brief exercise. Later that morning we’ll tour the UXO Museum for a sobering look at the history and lingering effects of the Second Indochina War (Vietnam War) on the people of Laos.
After lunch, we’ll head to the Tat Kuang Sii National Park to behold one of Laos’ greatest natural wonders – a 200-foot cascading waterfall feeding a series of smaller falls and turquoise blue pools. We’ll spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the falls and relaxing in it’s pools.
