Khon Pha Peng Waterfall (น้ำตกคอนพะเพ็ง) is just one of a group of beautiful water falls located in southern Laos just across the border from Ubon Ratchathani.
I love travelling to Laos and especially love the area around Pakse. I get the feeling that a lot of people who live or visit here do not explore over the border because of the hassle of getting there. I have my own car and once you have sorted out a passport for it (very easy and cheap) it is a breeze to pop across for a day or two of exploring. Not everyone however has this opportunity so I am happy to blog about a bus service that I just discovered.
According to TRWeekly there is a new bus service now available. They say that air-conditioned buses operate a single service on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and public holidays. The bus leaves Ubon Ratchathani at 0730 and arrives at the waterfall in southern Laos around noon. From Khon Pha Peng, it departs at 1400 and arrives in Ubon Ratchathani around 1830. The bus also stops in Pakse for travellers who want to overnight there. The cost is 400 baht one way. From what I can work out it would appear that the service departs from the main bus station here in Ubon.
