Tad Sae Waterfall, Luang Prabang

(4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Pouring over wide multi-level curved limestone rock formations among trees, Tad Sae Waterfall produce a silky canopy-like effect of dispersed water falling with a constant roar. The water reaches the falls through a moss-covered forest with trees growing straight out of the rock, forming several terraced pools. Take an elephant ride and join the local youngsters for a dip in an emerald-green pond, or walk the boardwalk to reach a wooden observation deck. Thatched huts next the falls provide boat rides. The falls' volume varies quite a bit, with the most dramatic time during rainy season between July and February. Put Tad Sae Waterfall at the forefront of your travel plans using our Luang Prabang trip builder.

  • Of Luang Prabang from, it is already quite elaborately to come to the waterfall. And then there is only little to see, because the water is only a trickle - no comparison to the Kuang XI in the dry! The trail passes along the Creek is also not easy.

  • Very beautiful place, but recommend the visit in the rainy season, to see the waterfall in all your splendor.

  • As beautiful as the Kuang Si Falls. Is a must, especially on sunny days and warm. Easy access by Tuk tuk

  • Fantastic waterfall! Not too much People and you can swim wherever you want. Little boattrip to the Tad Sae Waterfall is fun as well
  • It's great here! You can get there by motor bike from Luang Prabang easily. You then get a boat (10,000 kip if 2 or more are on the boat). This takes you to a docking station. You then walk up to the waterfall. Entry is 15,000kip, and is so worth it! You can swim and it is less touristy! I would recommend swimming in a sarong to t shirt ladies as there is a local vibe!
  • Super fun waterfall to play in.
  • Beautiful! Let's ride the elephant!
  • Disappointing compared to the other one in the area. Also, only go here in the wet season because it's dry the rest of the year.
