Kuang Si Falls, Luang Prabang

4.7
#1 of 384 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.

  • We have there been fairly early against 10 h (open to 8 h) and there were only a few tourists there. The waterfalls are beautiful and very refreshing to the swimming and bathing. There are small fish that nibble at one. The Park is very clean and there are cabins. Can recommend it only to go there and to bring enough time. Can high walking a path which is also highly recommended. Probably very slippery during the wet season. But in the dry season with flip flops. There are more tourists around midday. But in itself it was not particularly full off-season.

  • Wonderfully here to bathe, when it's so hot is! It has even dressing rooms! Before you come to the waterfall and its many pools, you can stroll at the BearRescue Center pass. The rescued bears, they can no more trainers, get a most appropriate enclosures and care. There are very informative panels.
