No, I've been maybe 15km up that road but it was YEARS ago -- at that time it was easier to get a sampan upriver from near Sekong, but the river was (according to locals I talked to) prone to flash floods and not all that safe. I didn't explore further.

I'm trying to track down the website of a Dutch couple I met who four-wheel-drove it -- will post it when I hear back.

Found it! It's from a few years ago, but could be useful ... btw this couple still going -- almost 10 years now apparently!
