Try out the new Tree Top Explorer – and be awarded with the experience of a lifetime in the jungle of southern Laos. It is all about adventure and fun, it is about immersing yourself in nature. The zip-line gives you an exhilarating rush! 'Fly' over deep ravines, in almost touching distance to the roaring water wall or the green roof of the forest. Enjoy the sensation of being weightless. The gorges are as gorgeous as the views are stunning. An unrivaled experience, with adrenaline levels reaching for the high - guaranteed! Trek in pristine forest and through coffee plantations. Discover the hidden world of the forest canopy from a sky-high walkway. Experience our jaw-dropping but safe via ferrata. Still eager for more adventure? Then go for 'abseiling' - even in the waterfall. It's all there!

What a great experience and well worth the money! Our group of 9 were of mixed ability (fitness/outdoor experience) and loved the hiking aspects both days, despite the well documented uphill and downhill sections. We must have been lucky as we did not encounter any leeches, however, a few rats in the treehouse were observed and left us alone to... More

Don’t get me wrong. It’s a wonderful experience ziplining next to this waterfall, and this is probably one of the best things to do in Laos. Luckily nothing happened to me, but 2 out of 10 were injured ! None of these accidents happened due to reckless behavior or not following instructions of guides. 1st accident: One woman started spinning... More

We had the most fantastic time during the 3 days we spent at Tree Top Explorer. The zip lines were amazing, as are the treehouses and main camp. We also really enjoyed the trekking between each of the ziplines. The guides were all incredible, I felt extremely safe throughout the duration of out trip.

Agree with most of the comments dropped here regarding the security, the landscapes, and the thrilling days you spend going from one tree to another. I'm not a fan of touristic packages and this activity is rather original, in direct contact with the nature and 100% fun. Hands down, i would do it again!

With so many positives it is unfortunate that this review must be posted. Spectacular scenery and a novel experience coupled with cheerful and helpful non English speaking guides make the trip great. The one English speaking guide was very personable and tried to communicate some with our large group of 20 people. The zip line system is ingenious and affords... More

I can't recommend the Tree Top Explorer experience ran by Green Discovery enough, it truly was amazing. The Zip Lining was exhilarating and stunning; there really is no finer way to experience the jungle. Plus there were added bonuses of increasingly hard rope bridges and a fantastic rock climb up a cliff face. The climb was assisted by hand holds... More

I had heard about the Gibbons Experience in the north of Laos, but as I was planning for my Laos trip, I stumbled upon this trip instead! The itinerary sounds similar, but while you get the chance of seeing Gibbons (but chances are not high!) in the north, here, you are guaranteed some amazing waterfalls! After a lot of reading...

I can't rave about this enough. After travelling solo in Laos for 3 weeks, I ended with this trip, the only group activity I'd done, and it was incredible! The combination of physical activity, stunning scenery, adrenalin rush, and relaxation in nature was perfect for the body and soul. Our main guide, Boun, proved to be competent, friendly and with...

Hard to believe that such an experience can exist. Three days, two nights in the jungle, sleeping in tree houses and a camp connected by ziplines at the base of a breathtaking waterfall. The trek to and from the camp is strenuous: a few hours each direction, that includes rock climbing, repelling, and ziplining across the valley and waterfalls. It... More
