Le Phe Falls

Done Det - 06.12.2005 from Don Khong together with other backpackers, Australian and English couples we sailed for two hours with the small boat and reached Don Det. It's a small island very peaceful and calm, life of the people is so simple, i like it. There's a bridge connecting the two island built by the French.

We found a guest house, Paradise Guest House, located along the river of Mekong, very clean and run by a family and nice Lao couple, i can only remember the name of the woman her name is "Lam".

Le Phe Falls - is the main attraction in the island, for the local Lao people it's called Somphanit Falls. We went biking looking around the whole island, and going to the falls, and to the temple and one historical train built by the French.

Again another unforgettable travel experience.


  1. I like the first one. It looks like a wonderland to me.

  2. I can't wait for our rivers and lakes and ponds to thaw out. That is one thing about spring and summer... I love running waters and can't wait to go gold panning with Hubby again. Nice photos of the rivers. Thanks for sharing.
