Authentic experience right in the heart of Bolaven. Jeep tour is a must. They offer the option to do guided tour for riders groups

My Mum and I had a fantastic day with Khamsone and our driver. Riding around in the jeep down the bumpy tracks was great fun and the waterfalls we visited were breathtaking. We then went back to Khamsone's farm for a delicious lunch that was freshly cooked by his wife. After lunch Khamsone explained to us the whole process of making coffee, from growing to harvesting, processing and roasting. He gave us a demonstration of roasting using his homemade roaster. It is fascinating how he call tell when it's ready just by smell and sound, without the need for expensive equipment. The coffee he makes is absolutely divine, without a doubt the best coffee I've ever tasted. He showed us his coffee plants and it is clear how passionate he is about coffee. He also offers homestays and if we had more time, we would have loved to stay there overnight, it's so peaceful and natural. Thank you Khamsone and everyone at Mystic Mountain for an unforgettable experience!

If you want to support an enterprising family in a nascent tourism area this is a great way to do it - Mr Khamsone has risen from a modest background to offering a range of experiences on the Bolaven plateau. He has outstanding passion for his business -which is infectious. We did a jeep tour (Chinese, Russian and American vintage), picking up on various aspects of the Vietnam war as well as the natural habitat and coffee and other plantations, providing some test of the core muscles ! All highly recommended !

Mr. Khamsone is truly passionate about his Mystic Mountain coffee that he grows on the Bolaven Plateau. I am glad he shares his big knowledge about coffee with tourists. He also shows how he roasts beans in a very unique machine. The coffee from these beans tastes wonderful. It is totally worth visiting him on his farm. We came there on a Green Discovery tour, but he also offers a homestay and Bolaven tours in his Jeep.

I spent two nights at Mystic Mountain Coffee last August-2019-and have fond memories of my stay.I was met in Paksong by the enthusiastic Mr Khamsone and driven to the coffee plantation.Accommodation was in a timber framed,thatch-roofed bungalow that Mr Khamsone himself built.It was clean and very spacious and sleep quality was excellent.Hot water showers were available in the shower room nearby.The food served here was top class and very appetising.On the second day I went on the famous jeep ride to visit a number of waterfalls.That was an unforgettable experience.Mr Khamsone has plans to extend his accommodation by building a new lodge on the ridge in his farm from which one can view sunrise and sunset....In the afternoon a group of us were given a detailed talk on the process of coffee roasting and coffee blending...I can recommend this place very highly to anybody seeking to experience a slice of Lao country life....Top marks...10 out of 10.
