Mekong Kayaks Waiver Of Liability Agreement


All participants must confirm this Liability Waiver and the Terms and Conditions agreements, and that they have travel insurance, before being able to book their tickets.

NB: if you arrive at Ban Lad Khammune village without travel insurance you cannot go on the tour, you are not eligible for a refund, and you could be marooned there for several days at your own cost, until alternative transport to Luang Prabang can be found.

Before confirming this Agreement, please take your time to read and understand it. Like many adventure sports there are risks associated with river cruises, kayaking and mountain biking. It’s important that you carefully consider and understand them.

This is a legal document and you are unable to book and participate in a Mekong Kayaks tour without you first having read, understood and confirmed this waiver. We’d like to thank you for your patience.


  • The minimum age for participation in Mekong Kayaks’ kayaking activities is 18. All persons aged 16 and 17 must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian on a kayaking or mountain biking tour. This guardian assumes all legal responsibility for them when confirming this Waiver of Liability, and Terms and Conditions agreements on their behalf.


  • I understand that once my booking is confirmed, it cannot be transferred or assigned to another participant.


  • I understand that there are risks involved with kayaking, mountain biking, river transportation and staying in a river village, and I acknowledge the risks and possible dangers of participating in a tour such as this.

Under such conditions I agree to participate in a manner that does not endanger either myself or others on the tour.


  • In the event of an accident due to the isolation of the area, professional medical support may not be immediately contactable or readily available to render assistance. I consent to receiving first aid which may be necessary in the event of illness or injuries suffered by me during the tour.


  • I agree to assume the risk of any harm arising from the negligence, reckless conduct or breach of warranties of Mekong Kayaks, its owners, officers, employees, guides, travel agents and sub-contractors.


  • I agree to release from liability and waive any and all claims for physical injury, illness and/or property loss or damage that I may have against Mekong Kayaks, its owners, officers, employees, travel agents, guides, villagers and sub contractors contemplated by this agreement, resulting from their:
