#4 of 7 in Nature in Luang Prabang
Time your visit to the jungle accordingly to visit Tad Thong Waterfall, the disappearing waterfalls. This series of small waterfalls only appears in the rainy season, which lasts from July to January. The route starts from a restaurant, and people generally complete a full circle back to it in about an hour. YOu can also swim in the waterfall pools. 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.

  • The waterfall is situated in the midst of a forest. Though sites like these seem "out of the way" - that is the way things are in Laos. You drive through kilometers of dirt roads, and then in the midd...  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.
