Tad Sae Waterfall, Luang Prabang

(900+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall Nature / Park
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.

  • Nice ! if go there when have lot of water ,very dry this season for me there yesterday 22-05-17
  • Very nice, tiered waterfalls. You can wade into the water and climb up on the different levels. Don't ride on an elephant if the owner still uses a seat (howdah). It is very bad for the elephant.
  • Natural and not overcrowded.
  • there was no water in the waterfall when i visited it, but you can have a nice trip in the forest. they keep some monkeys in a 1.5m x 1.5m x 1.5m cage, which is unacceptable, as you have to pay 20,000 for the boat plus 15,000 for the entrance to see a dried up waterfall, and they cannot build a larger cage for these monkeys? these cage are too small even for a tiny bird, not for a monkey!!!
  • loved it, easy to reach, good to spend half a day, better with good weather.
