Itinerary :

Day 1: 5hr Trek

Morning assemble at the office at 8:15am in Banlung.

Departure time is at 8:30am. You leave by moto, car or minivan in a northern direction to Vernsai district. In Vernsai, you’ll board a local boat that takes you a short distance upstream on the Sesan River. Before long you’ll reach the mouth of the O’LaLai River. The O’LaLai River has its springs further to the north inside the Virachey National Park. It has clean and unpolluted water. You travel by boat on this beautiful river for 30 minutes to the LaLai village of the Kavet tribe community ( Please Note: In the dry season from 15th of December to mid March, the transport from Vernsai to LaLai community will be on moto due to the O’Lalai River being too shallow). Upon arrival at LaLai village, you’ll meet our local Kavet community ranger who’ll guide you on the trek.

You’ll start trekking from here. At the beginning, the trek passes through a patch of secondary jungle and agricultural area. After an hour, you’ll reach the rice paddy fields of the Kavet indigenous community. You’ll take a lunch break with one of the local families. After lunch, you’ll soon enter the primary jungle. The trek goes up and down hills in the dense jungle. During the trek, you’ll take regular breaks. Your guide and ranger will talk to you about the many natural resources there as you rest and enjoy the surroundings.

You’ll arrive at the campsite by a small waterfall around 4:30pm, where you can enjoy a swim after the days trek. Your hammocks will be set up place and the campsite prepared for the night by your guide and ranger. The guide and ranger will prepare dinner for you. You’ll enjoy a tasty dinner by caddle and fire light.

Day 2: 5 – 6hr Trek

You get up at 7:00am for breakfast. After that, you’ll trek in a loop on different tracks. There are some beautiful panoramic views. This part of the trek is sometimes off the beaten track, so you can expect dense pimary jungle, where some parts of track are cut with a machete. You will have a chance to encounter some wildlife such as gibons, monkeys, birds, deer, wild pigs and even bears. There is no guarrante about seeing wildlife as they are wild animals so we are not able to make an appointment with them.

At noon, you’ll reach a local family in the rice fields. You’ll stop for lunch here. After lunch, you’ll carry on trekking back to the village of day one. You’ll say “Goodbye’’ to the ranger and take a boat back down river to Vernsai. Transport will be waiting to take you back to Banlung. You will be back in town around 5pm.
