Xayaburi Dam, Laos

Enjoying your Mekong River discovery in Laos, you will not only experience leisure sightseeings of peaceful riverside villages & towns, picturesque greenery, and numerous natural attractions en route but also get chances to witness one of the most iconic man-made modern structures in the country, Xayaburi Dam. About 30km to the east of the town of Xayaburi in northern Laos, the large dam is situated right on the banks of the river. It is the first of 11 dams that are planned on the lower Mekong River and also an important hydroelectric dams in the entire region. 
Starting in 2012, the construction of the Xayaburi Dam has been through several delays and the work on the dam was halted a couple of times due to the controversy regarding environmental issues and the life of downstream riparians. With some major modifications to the dam's design, eventually it operated for the first time in 2019. Once the operations begin, the dam will be able to produce a large amount of hydroelectric power, which can be used for all kinds of purposes throughout Laos and the neighboring countries.
Due to its special location, the Xayaburi Dam is a part of many Mekong River Cruise itineraries during their discoveries in northern Laos.
