Laos Highway 4

Hey folks,

Also posted this on GTrider & HUBB thought someone might here might know also.

Hello folks;

Currently in Luang Prabang, ending our mini tour of Laos. I have a question, after hearing the Huay Xai crossing faff (not allowed on the bridge etc etc) we want to use the border south of Pak Beng instead. From Luang Prabang the best route is down the Highway 4 then cross the Mekong at Muang Thadua then go west on 4A. Has anyone done this river crossing? Is it fairly reliable i.e. there will be a boat there right? Is it just little canoes or a slightly bigger vehicle boat? I know the river crossing at Pak Beng is fairly major but going that way is a 300km D-tour from Luang Prabang (Rt 13 and 2W) and I can just cut across this way using route 4 and a minor road heading south out of LP.

I think if I can't find out, will just turn up at the river crossing and see if there is anything to load the bike onto..if not just do the D tour.. no sweat :)

Have fun and all the best
Oli

Many thanks
Oli

question becomes information...
I just found out that there is a new-ish bridge. My "recent" Thailand map, nor opensourcemaps, nor google maps showed this so thought I'd better ask around :)
