Laos

Valley Run East of Vientiane

Description

This flight is a bit longer than most, but it is rare that you get to fly 30 miles in a more or less straight line along such a beautiful broad valley! Fly east, staying on the Laos side of the Thai/Laos border (north of the Mekong River). Return with a relaxing flight along the valley to the north. Youi may want to loiter over the Nam Ngum Reservoir at WP 5. Then return to the south across Vientiane.
