Kuang Si Falls, Luang Prabang
(4.7/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Kuang Si Falls and other Luang Prabang attractions using our handy Luang Prabang itinerary builder.
