Pakse motorbikeloop Laos
The Pakse Motorbikeloop you can do it in two or three days. I advise to do the loop clockwise the most beautiful views and waterfalls will be in the second part. So you get more exited instead of getting less exited. (So I describe the loop clockwise)
Rent a motorbike Pakse (Miss Noy)
When you want to rent a motorbike for the Pakse motorbikeloop I advise to go to Miss Noy. They offer you a meeting in the morning before the start of the loop where they explain the Pakse motorbikeloop. What to do when you’ve a problem with your bike and al you need to know. Where to go on this moment, depends maybe on dry and rain season. You can call them always when you’ve a question.

Mr Vieng coffee and Homestay
On the first way you will find Mr Vieng coffee you, will see the sign at the left side of the road. You can also stay there for a homestay. There are 6 places available on the moment. And he will upgrade to 10 next year.
When you order coffee it will be fresh from their own coffee plantage. Mr. Vieng roasts his coffee in the wok and brew you the coffee. It is a nice first stop on the loop.
Homestay on the motorbike loop Pakse
For the most beautiful waterfall and place was the “homestay” at the loop. They offer it as a homestay but it is more like a guesthouse. They offer tents for 60.000 were you can sleep. (2 persons a tent) They have a nice accommodation to chill, eat drink beer and sit around the bombfire. The river is the shower and in the morning they offer Lao coffee in the morning sun. See the Pakse motorbike loop map, it is near the waterfall with the yellow balloon.

Around the homestay guesthouse you can find several waterfalls. The first waterfall behind the homestay guesthouse was awesome! Pink little flowers, green grass, green banana trees and white water from a high wide waterfall. Around the guesthouse you can make a loop to the different waterfalls.
Waterfalls Pakse loop
On the route of the Pakse motorbike loop you’ll find several waterfalls. You can find the highest waterfall from Laos, places to swim, nice views and even when you’re lucky waterfalls without any people.
Paksong Coffee JHAI
One of the best stories I heard in Laos so far is the JHAI coffee house and their program. They have a non profit organization helping 2250 families to get better prices for their coffee. They sell quality coffee know for better prices, the coffee belongs to the best 2% coffee in the world. With the money the earn they make new waterpumps, teach children about hygiene and build new schools for education. So make a stop try the coffee and support the families in Laos.In Pakse you will find them on the left.
Cheap manchettes at the Pakse motorbikeloop
On the way back to Pakse you can buy manchettes, You can buy a machete for 30.000 kip ($4) or two for 50.000 kip ($6) They make the manchettes over there, so you can see the whole process.
