Limestone karsts of Khammouane province, Laos (*)
After crossing the Mekong river by ferry boat we entered Laos at Thakhet town. After the visa on arrival was done we headed to Hinboun river by car. Most part of southern Laos is high mountains on the border with Vietnam (on the east), which slopes down to the Mekong river valley which is the border with Thailand on the west. The road number 8, linking the north-south highway 13 parallel to the Mekong river to Vietnam border, is one of the many scenic roads with viewpoints from where one can have panorama views of limestone forests.
Boating on Hinbuon river, Khammouane province
Riding a long tail boat on Hin Boun river is an experience of typical Lao mountain country. There are villages with wooden houses, chicken, ducks, cows and buffalos, goats. People do fishing, farming and cattle raising. River travel was still an important mode of transport.
Another beautiful scenery on Hinboun river
There are sand beaches on the Hin Boun river bank, behind them are trees and village houses. If you go further you will see their farms growing paddy, vegetable, and cigar leaves. At the end of the valley is another river partly inside the cave at the foot of the limestone hill.
