Tour description provided by Viator

Champasak is Located in southern region of laos, there is many things to do and see when you visit. This case we start from pakse to wat phu, Then go to Khone Island. Of course there's much more to these two islands. Heading south from Ban Hua Det (Hua Det Village), the guesthouses thin out and the icons of rural island life – fishermen, rice farmers, weavers, buffalo, sugar palms – are on full display. Chill in a hammock, wander aimlessly around the islands or languidly drift downstream in an inner tube in the turquoise arms of the Mekong.The serenity continues across the French bridge on Don Khon, but down here there are also some gorgeous waterfalls to visit, sandy beaches to lounge on, dolphins to spot and even a little patch of wilderness to explore.
Wat phu: The pre-Angkor temple of Wat Phou. UNESCO world heritage site we call Wat Phou. which is one of Lao World Heritage site recognized by UNESCO in 2001. The temple was built in the 6th century by the Khmers and was originally used to worship the Hindu god Shiva and other deities before being converted into a Buddhist temple in later centuries. Wat Phou was considered the centre of the Khmer kingdom until it was moved to Angkor Wat in the 9-12th centuries. Khon Island: we enjoy a visit of the surrounding countryside, and board on a long trail boat touring to Don Khone area, taking you to visit the remains of French period, Liphi Waterfall or "the Corridor of the Devil".
