We had a wonderful time here. We were so well looked after by Mr Khamsome and his family and it was fascinating seeing the process of coffee from plant to cup.
We stayed one night and did a tour of the farm in the evening walking up to a point where we saw a stunning sunset. The next day we got a demonstration of coffee roasting process from Mr Khamsome.
Accommodation is fairly basic - mattress on the floor, lukewarm water in shower in our A frame bungalow.
The next day we visited a local village and had a picnic by a waterfalls.
We really enjoyed ourselves and this was one of our highlights of our trips to Laos.
Thank you all at Mystic Mountain for a great hospitality and making our short stay so wonderful leaving us with wonderful memories.

Our visit to Mystic Mountain Coffee included jeep rides, 2 waterfalls, a good lunch, a lesson in coffee roasting and a guided tour of a local village. Oh, and a free pack of freshly roasted coffee too.
The jeep is an essential vehicle for such rough terrain, the fact it was a vintage one made it even more fun( though very bumpy!) After 2 hours, we were glad to get back on relatively smooth roads again.
The owner and his wife have invested a lot of time, cash and thought into this business. They deserve to do well.

I had a wonderful time here! I was well looked after by Khamsome and his family and it was fascinating seeing the process of coffee from plant to cup.
I stayed one night and did the tour the next day.
Accommodation is fairly basic - mattress on the floor, lukewarm water in shower in my A frame bungalow.
The tour involved walks through the coffee plantation to the view points and seeing the different stages of how coffee is processed and we finished by drinking what we had sieved, sorted and roasted 😀
We visited a local village and had a picnic by Tad Moun and Tak Konkane waterfalls.
I really enjoyed myself and this was a highlight of my trip to Laos.
Thank you all at Mystic Mountain!

This was a stop for us as part of an extended tour of Laos. The kind owner showed us around his coffee plantation. We had the opportunity to learn about the entire production process from the small bush, through harvesting to roasting the beans.
The guesthouse organises a Jeep Safari on Vietnam War-era off-road vehicles with an unforgettable swim in a waterfall.
We also had a delicious lunch as part of our visit.

We came to Mr. Khamsone and his lovely family via recommendation. We are SUPER HAPPY to spent 2 nights in one of his super new bungalows next to the family house, coffee plants in front of the window. Although it was raining a lot, it was not borring at all! Mr. Khamsone is THE expert of coffee and everything concerning the brown gold. His 7 lessons about coffee give you all the basic knowledge. He can speak very good english and can answer all questions regarding coffee, lao culture in the south and living with the natur.
The vegetarian food prepaired by his wife was awesome!
The farm is in the middle (the heart) of the Bolaven Plateau, where the normal "Bolaven scooter loopers" don`t pass. The 13 km long adventurous road brings you to the real lao live.
Unfortunately we haven`t got time for a tour, but Mr. Khamsone can arrange a lot of different tours (jeep-tour, trekking, hiking, rafting, kayaking, waterfalls, and of couse coffee tasting...), cooperating with the villagers around. We will do all of this, when we come the next time. And this is for sure!

I live in Asia since 2012 and this was the best Authentic experience i had so far.
You are introduced in the real life on Lao people....You are experiencing the real raw nature and having a Guide who lives, who works for the community, who cares about land and coffee.
You start your special tour whith wild beautiful nature and some war history... The fact tht you are in an open car is just amazing...you can just be amazed byt the beauty and the local life
When you get in the coffee plantation with love and dedication you are introduced to the process and trust me you will value the money you pay for a pack of coffee next time.
And then....the discovery of Local Untouched villages i was Amazing! To discover the way they live, the way they been carring traditions and way of living was really a life time experience!

This is not a regular tour is made with love and care!! this is a Life experience!! A must you have to do while visiting south Lao
Thank you for all your care!

I organised to stay with Mr Khamsone and his family in their homestay so I could learn about Laos culture and also about coffee production. I stayed for 2 nights in their homestay located on a remote area of land in the Paksong district. They prepared meals for me each day and Mr Khamsone took me on a tour of the surrounding areas and into the villages to meet the people behind the coffee production.

It was one of the most authentic experiences I have had in Laos. Mr Khamsone started the tours as a way to tell the world about his village and the wonderful coffee they produce. If you love coffee and culture then I certainly recommend getting in touch with Mr Khamsone. He can cater the tours to your needs and even teach you how to make coffee from harvesting to the cup.

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.
