Kuang Si Waterfall, Luang Prabang

4.7
#1 of 449 in Things to do in Laos
Surrounded by lush tropical jungle, Kuang Si Waterfall feature a series of travertine cascades and turquoise pools. The three-tiered waterfall--the largest in the area--spills from the shallow pools on the top of a sheer hillside and then drops 60 m (200 ft) into a cluster of natural pools. Put on some sturdy shoes and climb the slippery trails on the side of the cascades to get to the top. Amenities include well-kept pathways and bridges, picnic tables, and wooden huts near the entrance where you can change into a swimsuit. The scenic journey to the waterfall, leading across paddy fields and past farming villages, is an attraction in its own right.

  • It's beautiful. The water is turquoise. Perhaps it's best to go early so there's no crowds. Closer to noon the tour of the group is brought. With fewer people will remain an unforgettable experience. Be sure to swim. It is better to take special shoes, because the bottom is rocky.

  • Come early in the morning. Amazing waterfalls with spectacular landscape. There are signs saying no topless or bikini, but some tourists don't follow. Worth visiting.
  • Most beautiful waterfall I have encountered. But beware of the weather, go only during sunny day then you will see the magical blue water.
