Khammouane Province

Khammouane province contains two vast wilderness areas known as the Khammuane Limestone National Biodiversity Conservation Area and the Nakai – Nam Theun National Biodiversity Conservation Area.

The Kahmmuane Limestone is a maze of limestone karst peaks forming a stone forest of caves, rivers and pristine jungle. For most of the wet season, the area is not accessible by road – most ‘roads’ being tracks with log bridges across deeps streams. These tracks are often routes across rice paddies near the river banks – during the rainy season, the only way to get around is by boat.
