The Gibbon Experience

I noticed a question previously posted on 23 jan 2006 regarding this place but nobody had been there and tried it first hand and it looks pretty amazing!
Has anyone been yet and can say its worthwhile as i've only just heard about it and its a bit out of the way of the current itinerary im looking to do in Laos?

Hi simeone_8,

We'll be running a feature story on this place shortly -- hopefully by the end of the week. We're just waiting on pics.

Hi simeone_8,

The Gibbon story is now on the site -- you can see it here. Note this story came in from a freelancer, so we're still to see the place ourselves, but it sounds great!

Hi. Just found this thread. The website listed is wrong, the correct website is http://www.gibbonx.org
Thanks!

I met a couple of people who did this in Laos and they said it was amazing. Take those malaria tabs though!

I'm interested in doing the Gibbon Experience but I'm scared of heights - would be interested to hear if this is ok for someone challenging their fears or whether it's just too scarey
Thanks

Does anyone know if there is sth. simalar anywhere else in Laos? Because I'll be traveling from Hanoi to Vientiane and than south via the 13. But if ti's really worth it I should maybe go by boat to Huay Xay....

#8 - it's pretty high up!

#9 - as far as I know the GibbonExp is the only place like it in Laos
