Kuang Si Falls, Luang Prabang

4.7
#1 of 386 in Things to do in Laos
Surrounded by lush tropical jungle, Kuang Si Falls feature a series of travertine cascades and turquoise pools. The three-tiered waterfall--the largest in the area--spills from the shallow pools on the top of a sheer hillside and then drops 60 m (200 ft) into a cluster of natural pools. Put on some sturdy shoes and climb the slippery trails on the side of the cascades to get to the top. Amenities include well-kept pathways and bridges, picnic tables, and wooden huts near the entrance where you can change into a swimsuit. The scenic journey to the waterfall, leading across paddy fields and past farming villages, is an attraction in its own right.

The Park is wooded and allows to have shade, you can swim in the main "pool" and there are booths to change. The water is cool and it's a world of good by 35 degrees! There is a short ride that climbs above the cascade and which allows for lovely views of the landscape.

  • The ride is very pretty. The only downside is the cloud of Chinese and Korean tourists that make noise, throw their trash everywhere... Once arrived at the waterfall, it must take the path that climbs and finally meet quiet. The hike that starts from the main waterfall takes 30 minutes. To get there, we took a tuk - tuk from Luang Prabang to 200 000kip two.

  • The waterfall is a must to visit. Be prepared to hike up to the very top, a bit of a strenuous climb along a steep path. The water is cold, but really, it is a must to take a dip! The waterfall is a 4...  more »
