Located just over an hour away from the city, Phu Khao Khouay National Park is the closest National Park to Vientiane, offering some great scenery, magnificent waterfalls, river, and trekking trails through evergreens and deciduous forests. The park is also home to rare mammals such as sun bears, tigers and elephants. The friendly village of Ban Hat Khai is a good place to learn more about the genuine lifestyle of the Lao Loum people.
