Tat Lo - Waterfalls and Cute Kids.

LAOS | Monday, 26 January 2009 | Views [1454]

Tat Lo is a small village situated just north of the Bolovean Plateau. It’s known for its tremendous waterfalls and tranquil riverside setting. We only planned one night here, but managed to squeeze in a lot during the short stay. The highlight of our time involved walking through neighboring villages, coffee plantations, and riverside farms. We hired a guide for a half day trek assuming he’d be able to take us on some less traveled trails and he did not disappoint. Well almost… He failed to mention that the largest of the waterfalls (Tat Song) was literally turned off. The dam up river apparently closes off all water flow to the falls for half of the day.

The rest of the trek included Katu and Alak villages. Each village was full of playing kids, livestock, and drying coffee beans. The village kids were especially sweet to us passing strangers, even joining us as we climbed over the river rocks to the final waterfall.
