After lunch we carry on down the river to pass back into Laos and carry the Yaks up a bank and load them on a truck and off we go to another waterfall. This one is HUGE! The largest in South East Asia the volume of water passing through this fall is something to behold!. After this fall we head back to Don Det to finish off the day with a strange long boat ride back to the island. Strange.... well not so strange for Laos, we had around 8 Kayaks 4 being double Kayaks not all of these could fit on the boat so our giude tied two of these to the side of the boat with a very thin elastic style tie rope and then he sat on these... laughs all round on the boat as we head back to Don Det. The reason we opted for the boat back rather than the paddle back was that our guide was so tired he ordered a boat to pick us up and drop us back to the island. The reason he was so tired was that there was on older lady on the tour who wasn't interested in paddling!!! This is a Kayaking tour where yo sign up to haul your own ass around not a tour where a guide paddles you leisurely around and shows you the scenery... so to help out I pulled up beside him and we swapped for a while. Little did she know we swapped. To her surprise around 10 minutes later when she turned around to see me sitting on the back... Oh do you live here, are you a guide??? No, just here to help our poor little guide who has been paddling you around!
We paid 180,000 Kip for this adventure it is normally priced at 200,000Kip full day lunch included as well as all the strange fees they have along the way like the bridge fee!!! 20,000Kip which is well over priced.
