Has anyone done this route in the last 3 years or so?
I'm planning my trip for this Dec/Jan & am thinking of doing it again as I did it on my own 4 years ago. Back then it was a great section of about 30klm's of single trail over the mountains.
Is the guesthouse in Ban Lathane still open in case we need to stay there?
I'm thinking of putting the bikes on a boat at BL & go the short distance up the Mekong to Pak Ou as I haven't been there yet.
Day 6, halfway down the 1st page here if anyone hasn't seen it.
