July is one of the wettest months of the year in Laos, although showers tend to be short and intense, lasting for a few hours rather than all-day downpours, and plenty of dry days can still be expected.
July is one of the wettest months of the year in Laos, especially in Pakse and the southern regions where rainfall can be heavier and last longer than the north of the country.
Wet weather can make caving and rock-climbing difficult around Vang Vieng; and travel to the more remote regions, such as Phongsali and Muang Sing more problematic, as tracks may become unpassable.
On the upside, the lush greenery of the countryside returns, and the waterfalls in the 4000 Islands are at their best during July.
