The tree toppled over on March 19 2012 the task of removing the tree from where it lay on a rocky outcrop deployed two helicopters and four volunteer soldiers to carry out the task.they were happy they had been able to retrieve the tree from its precarious position in the middle of the falls. They held a Buddhist ceremony before they lifted it during which senior monks from Champassak province performed a rite to assist the task.The revered tree was placed in this specially built pavilion.
