Road Pakxan

  1. Planning a trip Mid February from from Pakxan to Xieng Khouang (Phonsavan) with a 4WD. Would anyone have some recent update on this road. Is it easier to enter the road at Pakxan or at Padkrading?
    Thanks for your input; highly appreciated. Peter
  2. Best/easiest is to enter from Pakxan. The first 50 km or so are asphalt after that is some 135 km dirt and the last 30 km is asphalt again. Please note that they are upgrading the dirt part of the road and as a result the road will be closed sometimes for some time (a few hours or so). I guess Jimoi will be able to fill you in with the latest as I haven't been there for some time.

    Have a look also at those posts: ... t4725.html ... t4640.html
  3. Auke, thanks a lot for your fast and precise input. Shall update once I'm back. Happy trips! Peter
