Take a picture of the map at the entrance to know where to go, and wear good hiking shoes, since the path is uneven in certain places.

  • Unfortunately Tad Thong Waterfall was looking sad and unloved when I visited. Toilet paper littered the start of the trail and on edge of water pools. The trail is in a pretty bad state and in some...  more »

  • If you've done most of what there is worth doing around Luang Prabang then this is a good little afternoon adventure. This is our second time in LP so we jumped on a scooter and bumped and grinded...  more »

  • Place is abandoned and has fallen into disrepair. I was there in the dry season so I can't say much about the waterfalls but the jungle trail was quite nice. If you like being alone in the jungle and having to maneuver around a number of fallen trees, broken down bridges etc. doesn't scare you, then this place is for you. Would have given 3.5 rating but 4 seemed too much.
  • This place is totally deserted, nobody maintains it anymore. The jungle trail trek was exciting though
  • A very nice jungley trail with a few small waterfalls. A little bit run down but nobody else there. A pleasant afternoon.
  • Off season no one about. Still lovely to chill
  • Rocky road, no signs or indications to the trailhead. Motorbikes beware, we got a flat going up. Luckily there was a small village that had someone who fixed the tube in the tire. It cost 10,000 kip. Found the trailhead eventually but didn’t get to the end because we had no clue how far it was.
