Welcome to The Gibbon Experience!
We built the world’s highest tree houses so you can experience flying through the forest canopies and waking up surrounded by gibbons.
Your interest and presence in the forest has raised awareness for the need for its conservation, and made the creation of the Nam Kan National park possible.
Hundreds of forest people now make a living from participating in this conservation project. By visiting the treetops of The Gibbon Experience, you are protecting the National Park and sustaining the livelihoods of a large community.
A CHILDHOOD FANTASY WITH A SERIOUS PURPOSE
The Gibbon Experience is a tourism-based conservation program. It is mainly known for its canopy set-ups featuring incredible tree houses and ziplines.
We believe a canopy-level tree house is a great nature observatory and a privileged spot to meet new friends – locals or foreigners – far removed from ethnic oddities and related clichés.
By visiting our setup, worldwide travelers discover their passion and show their support for forest conservation.
WHAT WE DO
"Well-known as one of Laos’s most unique accommodations, the Gibbon Experience is a two- or three-day adventure into some of the country’s most pristine forest canopy"
"It's an incredibly special travel moment you won't find anywhere else in the world made possible by the Gibbon Experience"
"The tree houses [...] are a thing of architectural wonder, straddling the giant trunks of strangler fig trees. But more extraordinary still is that to reach these vertiginous eyries you’ll have to trek through the fecund realm of the tiger, then catch a series of exhilarating zip lines strung across the forest canopy, before flying into your night’s accommodation."
"Not only is this exhilarating adventure one of the most unforgettable experiences in Southeast Asia, it’s also one of its most effective conservation concepts."
"Agile ape man I am certainly not, but in true Tarzan style I let off a mighty howl that echoes through the treetops. The sheer scale of the beauty that surrounds me is astounding"
