The developer of Nam Pien​ Yorla Pa, Mr Somphet Maopaseuth, said that although the facility is already popular, local authorities wanted to make changes to ensure it met international standards.
“Now we have improved the quality of services and visitor facilities as well as adding new activities. We are also working with a wildlife conservation centre to introduce activities related to wildlife conservation,” Mr Somphet added.
Nam Pien Yorla Pa in Pakngum district is named after a similar attraction created a few years ago by the same developer in Oudomxay province, called Nam Kat Yorla Pa, which became extremely popular and attracted large numbers of locals and visitors.
Nam Pien​ Yorla Pa in Vientiane was created with the aim of conserving natural resources and biodiversity and encouraging the development of a green and sustainable lifestyle.
The visitor attraction is an important contribution to Laos’ tourism products and adds a fresh and exciting destination to the country’s offerings, making the most of the rural environment, while at the same time providing a source of revenue for local residents.
Nam Pien Yorla Pa is located in Xienglae Thar village in Pakngum district, within the Phou Khao Khuay mountain range, and offers activities such as short strolls through woodland, swimming in waterfall pools, zip-lining, sledging, or crossing rope bridges.
The government hopes to attract 2.7 million foreign visitors generating US$401 million in tourism revenue during Visit Laos​ Year​ 2024.
In 2025 the government hopes to attract even more foreign tourists and has set a target figure of 2.9 million, with a goal of US$434 million in tourism revenue, according to the Ministry of Information, Culture​ and​ Tourism.​
