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.

  • If it is full of water, it will be the nice fall too to visit. We didn't see much water in the fall and the main attraction become the elephant riding and zip line. 
  • We went there in February, she was dry! "Luckily" they had put a pipe to feed the waterfall... strange no? Source it I don't know. Go rather to Kuang if this one is beautiful. FYI in February 2017: the boat for the crossed 10,000 kip / pers parking/racket 5.000 kip / scooter the entered the dry waterfall: 15,000 kip / pers

  • 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.
