Adventure Travel Blogging

Laos is a beautiful and highly authentic country, still relatively undiscovered on the world radar and is perfect for those who have a passion for seeking out untamed destinations. Enjoy spectacular scenery, visit sacred temples and discover the laid back charm of the friendly Lao people. As you travel from the mountainous north to the 4,000 Island...s (Si Phan Don) of the Mekong River in the south, the diversity of the landlocked country of Laos is surprising.

Focus on TCT: Jhai Coffee House, Laos

Focus on TCT: Jhai Coffee House, Laos
One thing I love about working in the adventure travel industry is the small world experiences that seem to happen across the globe. Jhai Coffee is one such example and we're proud to support this philanthropic coffee house in Southern Laos as one of our Traveler's Conservation Trust projects.  Tyson Adams, the founder of Jhai Coffee, grew up in Ephrata, WA. After graduating he worked in Laos at a non-profit where he fell in love with the country and saw an opportunity to create change at the Boliven Plateau in Southern Laos.

In just three years Jhai has built 15 clean water wells in the surrounding villages, educated hundreds of children on proper hygeine, and brought Laos coffee to international market.  Coffee is the lifeblood of the Boliven Plateau. This region of Laos...

This is an adventure traveler’s dream trip. The island monasteries of Bahir Dar, stone churches of Lallibella, the African Castles of Gondar, the Simien Mountains, Axum (the final resting place of the Ark of the...
