Kuang Si Waterfall
Considered as one of Luang Prabang’s most popular tourist attractions, Kuang Si waterfall tumbles 60m before spilling through a series of aquamarine natural pools ideal for swimming. There are changing facilities at the lower pools, shaded picnic areas and a restaurant.
The side trails lead to the top, where you can see the stream feeding into the falls. Wear proper footwear as the trails can get slippery, especially during the wet season, when these trails should be avoided.
The trip from Luang Prabang to the falls is a very scenic ride passing rice paddies, local villages and green hills.
There is a bear rescued centre, located a short walk past the entrance gate and it is included in your ticket to the waterfalls.
