Laos is one of those barely-touched destinations that I love to visit for its stunning natural beauty, its friendly locals, and its ancient sites. On this trip, I was headed once again to Southern Laos, where I would spend time gazing at exquisite waterfalls, zip-lining and abseiling through the lush jungle, and having close encounters with the welcoming locals.

My journey began in Paksong – the coffee capital of the Bolaven Plateau. It’s a sleepy village surrounded by grass moorlands, with a cool climate due to its altitude. We arrived early, in plenty of time to start our trek at noon. We were about to embark on a trek to Tree Top Explorer – a type of adventure that is becoming quite common in Southeast Asia, but this had to be one of the more exciting ones I’d ever done!
