Earlier to this it was a habitat of wild buffaloes known as “Idkabue” (meaning: "buffalo dropping"), which the French colonial regime became "Attapeu". During the revolutionary war against the French regime the province was the headquarters of the National Libertaion Front. By the end of the war, much of the area was destroyed, remnants of which could be seen even now in some stretches of the Ho Chi Minh Road.
