Pouring over wide multi-level curved limestone rock formations among trees, Tad Sae Waterfall produce a silky canopy-like effect of dispersed water falling with a constant roar. The water reaches the falls through a moss-covered forest with trees growing straight out of the rock, forming several terraced pools. Take an elephant ride and join the local youngsters for a dip in an emerald-green pond, or walk the boardwalk to reach a wooden observation deck. Thatched huts next the falls provide boat rides. The falls' volume varies quite a bit, with the most dramatic time during rainy season between July and February. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Luang Prabang holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tad Sae Waterfall and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Waterfall was not too spectacular as we went in the dry season, but the swimming was awesome. You can also feed elephants a bundle of bananas or bamboo for 10,000 kip.
Magical place with cool blue water, multiple levels of waterfalls and pools to swim in. They also have a cool mom bear sanctuary for rescued bears. A 20-30min hike will take you to the top of the falls where there are additional swimming spots and 3km hike to a spring cave restaurant.
