“Beautiful waterfall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We spent a wonderful afternoon at these waterfalls. There is a rope swing into one of the pools which looked like fun ! We climbed higher to a less crowded pool. The water literally takes your breathe away, it is so cold, but so refreshing. Take your camera, the scenery is amazing. The day we visited there were monks from Chang Mai swimming in the pools. The Black Bear sanctuary is at the entry of the park. Well worth a look.

“Great place to cool off!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

It's just beautiful!! We were in two people, rent a tuktuk from luang prabang to get us there, it cost THB 130,00 plus THB 20,00 each from the entrance, it took around 40 minutes to get there but it totally worth it, go all the way up to the top to see the big waterfall!!! Be aware that have the same fish massage!!lol.. they will bit a little!

“Nice waterfalls but crowded with tourists”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

The site consists firstly of some small falls in the forest and some basins where you can swim (white waters) and ends with a big waterfall. At the enter you can also find a black bear park. To my opinion the site is nice but basically crowded with tourists (and probably only location in laos for European to wear their swimsuits and bikinis). Maybe not the most typical Laos place.

“Lovely Clean Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

Rented a moped n drove the 20 odd km through beautiful countryside. For 20,000 kip you get to view the bears at the sanctuary (feeding time 12.30) n take a dip in the cool clean pools at the foot of the rapids. U can even jump the 2M off a hanging tree into the pool. Great craic. After that u can take the short, slippy & steep climb to the top of the falls and view the canopy below. Coming down is fun too, swinging from the vines on the trail. Bring a packed lunch as the roadside restaurant/cafes are over priced (40,000 kip for fried rice). Also bring walking shoes n camera. Enjoy
