Itinerary

Sedone River Tour at a glance

Leave bustling Pakse behind and discover the rural landscape just at its doorsteps. Follow the Sedone River, crossing bridges of smaller confluents. Experience flat red dirt road biking while riding past small villages. Why not stop and have a chat with the farmers that come your way or work in the fields. 

Sedone River Tour – Cycling from the city into the rural landscape

Pack a picnic of local food (freshly baked baguettes, barbecued fish, spicy salad, fruit and sticky rice) and get some water before you start your journey from the tourist heart of town at the corner of Wat Luang and French Bridge (reopened 2016). Head south on road 13 for 1.5 km and turn left just after the beautiful Wat Phabat. Follow this road for about 3.5 km until it turns into a red dirt track. You will see the Sedone River on your left-hand side as you cross three times bridges over small streams. 

As you leave the town behind, your surroundings turn quickly into a rural landscape passing small villages and ending up in a completely agricultural world in the middle of rice paddy fields. In the distance to your right you can see a hill. Take a break and enjoy your picnic or use your Lao phrasebook to have a chat with the farmers working in the fields, before retracing your steps back to town. If you are adventurous enough and have a GPS-tool (or a “map.me”-application on your smartphone), then you can ( at least in dry season ) try to proceed in north-eastern direction. After about further 10 km you should meet with the road no. 20 from Salavan to Pakse. Pedal back on this road to town and you have already created your personalized Laos-bicycle-roundtrip !
