We turn into Houay Xai Stream, one of Nam Mang’s tributaries. After 1-hr boat ride we begin a trek under evergreen canopy.  A picnic lunch is served on the way.
    In the afternoon we reach Tad Xay Waterfall and Pha Xay Waterfall. These waterfalls are particularly beautiful during and after the rainy season. Tad Xay is ideal for short refreshment in the natural pools.
