Kuang Si Waterfall, Luang Prabang

4.7
#1 of 451 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.

  • Nothing spectacular just some limestone steps. Water pretty clear n few swimming holes good for a cool dip on a hot day. Nice walk
  • Nice place to hang out. Best to book a night to stay so you can enjoy the waterfalls closer to the end of the day and the following morning (less people).
