Create an itinerary including Kuang Si Waterfall
Surrounded by lush tropical jungle, Kuang Si Waterfall 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 falls are very photogenic. Easy to get to - hired scooters make the trip. The short hike to the top was worth the trek. It wasn't too crowded either.

  • Amazing water falls with clear and green color. Driving 45 minutes from Luang Prabang city, then take electric golf car to water fall. There are some restaurant near by. Great to visit

  • Awesome waterfalls with ultra clear cascading water in a pristine location…American expat with Lao wife and son took a break during the Covid fiasco and glad we did. Just a ten minute average hike...
