Adventures Overland has announced its maiden expedition to Laos, a country traversed by the Mekong River and known for its mountainous terrain, French colonial architecture, hill tribe settlements and Buddhist monasteries. The capital city of this landlocked nation, Vientiane, is the site of the That Luang Stupa, where a reliquary reportedly houses the Buddha’s breastbone. The journey also covers the old town of Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the perfect place to relax and enjoy stunning river views.
The expedition planned between January 24, 2023 and February 2, 2023 offers a picturesque self-drive convoy-style journey, with visits to revered monuments, kayaking across the famous Nam Song river while enjoying the Laotian countryside. A chance to explore limestone caves, go on scenic nature reserve trails, and do a few adrenaline-pumping activities. This Kingdom of a Million Elephants, with its fantastic scenery, ethnic villages, and unexplored lands, makes it any traveller’s off-beat dream destination, with luxurious accommodations and a mouth-watering blend of cuisines.
Tushar Agarwal, Co-Founder of Adventures Overland, said, “At Adventures Overland, we believe in offering unique experiences to travel enthusiasts. We are excited to launch our maiden expedition to Laos, unconventional and relatively unexplored by Indian travel enthusiasts. Our guided, small-group self-drive trips allow travellers to experience new destinations while driving in convoys. They can enjoy the expedition without any worries about breakdowns, language barriers, and navigation of difficult terrain. Every route in each country we visit has been vetted to ensure the journey is seamless. Adventures Overland also believes in responsible travel where due consideration is given to the terrain.”
