RIVERS IN VIENTIANE
 
Nam Lik
Several rafting companies offer day-trips as part of a van-ride from Luang Prabang and Vientiane on the lower Lik but the upper Lik offers numerous kayaking opportunities and long trips. It is possible to see wildlife along the way such as monkeys, wild boar, rare birds, iguana and other reptiles. Year-round. 

 
   
Nam Xong
Kayaking on this river is one of the most popular activities in Vang Vieng. The Nam Xong goes through breathtaking rural scenery and steep karsts, with opportunities to stop and visit some impressive limestone caves. 


 
   
Nam Ngum
A short, wild river through deep gorges that challenges the most skilled hardshell kayakers. Located just north of Vientiane at the site of the country’s first dam, it is advisable only for whitewater experts although several short raft-based trips are offered. Year-round.
