HIGHLIGHTS IN SEKONG
 

TAD FAEK WATERFALL
At Km 14,5 on Route 11 to Attapeu you will see a turn off on the left to Tad Faek, a 5 meter-high waterfall with two pools in which you can swim. Swimmers should use the one above the falls, as a diabolical-sounding puffer fish known as the pa pao is believed to lurk in the pool below. Locals report with a sort of gleeful dread how the evil pa pao can home in on and sink its razor-sharp teeth into the human penis with uncanny precision. Admittedly, the women are more gleeful about this than the men. The falls rae 2,4 kilometers from the Route 11 turn off. The pools fill up with locals on weekend and holidays.

   

KATAMTOK WATERFALL
Rushing forth off the Bolaven Plateau and cascading 100 meters down into deep pools, Katamtok is one of least known but most spectacular waterfalls in Laos. It is the Huay Katam River that emanates from the thick jungle behind, only to leave its sleepy enclave for this roaring juncture on this journey.
