Inside Asia Tours: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos

Bolaven Plateau by Vintage Jeep

Traverse Loas' Bolaven Plateau by vintage Jeep.

One of southern Laos' most attractive destinations, the Bolaven Plateau is an expanse of highland formed from an ancient volcano, rich with waterfalls, lush jungles, farmland, ethnic villages. One of the best ways to cover it all is by jeep; ideal for the terrain, on a trail cutting right through the plateau, on a route rarely visited by foreigners.

While most of Laos can feel very hot and humid, the plateau's altitude of 1000 to 1350 metres creates a microclimate, with most months of the year enjoying daytime temperatures in the mid-20s. This, along with the rich volcanic soil, make it ideal for growing coffee. But while coffee plantations here are numerous, it's not all about this little black bean. Other crops benefit from the fertile land with cassava, tea, rattan, cardamom and various fruit grown here.
