Create an itinerary including Kuang Si Waterfall
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.

  • The falls are very photogenic. Easy to get to - hired scooters make the trip. The short hike to the top was worth the trek. It wasn't too crowded either.

  • Amazing water falls with clear and green color. Driving 45 minutes from Luang Prabang city, then take electric golf car to water fall. There are some restaurant near by. Great to visit

  • Beautiful waterfall with swimming lagoon pools at the very bottom. Not too cold and definitely worth swimming around to cool off after hiking up and circling the upper falls and pools. Watch your step as the trails are super slippery. Probably don’t do the upper hike if has recently rained.
  • most amazing place, best thing is to cool down in one of those natural pools and enjoy the view. The main waterfall is stunning, recommendation is to get here in the morning as in the afternoon there is a lot more people. From the left side of the main waterfall you can hike all the way up, which is a bit tough but worth it, since there is opportunity to take a quick boat ride (costs 10 000kip) and to swim in the source of the waterfall.
