I'm new to this forum and it looks great - I've been on Lonely Planet for years but no-one answered this question, I hope you guys can help.
I've been scanning my guide book and this plan looks possible, but then the guide book is rather confused over bus times so who knows.
Day 1 - leave Vientiane early and travel to Kong Lo caves, sleep at caves
Day 2 - visit caves, then travel to Tha Khaek, sleep Tha Khaek
Day 3 - VIP bus to Pakse and then onwards bus to Champasek, sleep Champasek
Day 4 - get up early and visit temple, travel on to Don Det, sleep Don Det
If this is possible and specific advice on buses and times would be great and how to travel the 8 km to the temple?
I really want to see both the Cave and temple on the way so other suggestions are very welcome. I have done some crazy journeys before which people told me weren't possible, but I will have my big bag with me.
If there is some kind of mini tour that takes you from Pakse to Don Det via Champasek that would be great but I couldn't find any.
