    It is positive that there is almost no other tourists at this waterfall, so has his rest. The whole system seems a but very shabby. Impertinence is to claim 20,000 kip entrance fee. Overall, one must say clearly that is not worth a trip to this waterfall.

    This waterfall is not as impressive but there is some good hiking. Take bug spray as Laos forests are wild.  more »

    Not much water in the dry season but the short hike trough the forest, an hour without visiting the village, is really nice.

    The place is deserted because it is no longer a tourist place. This makes this place interesting to do a trek in the jungle quiet (path). On the other hand, we should not go to the waterfall that seems to often be dry.

    We went during the season dry season, there is very little water, but the ride is nice and there is a Lake to swim! We can even make a game of petanque! However it pays, the places belong to an operator who demand more or less 20000kips.
