We visited on a Sunday at the end of the rainy season and the falls were quite spectacular and much more impressive than we expected! Well worth a trip!

It is the wet season, the river was swollen and the water was nothing like the pretty, quiet falls in the photos. It is dangerous in the condition we saw it. Some walkways were under water and with tree roots dangerous. Still amazing though. Just...More

The Kuang Sri Waterfalls are usually blue but brown during the monsoons. Section were closed due to the strong water currents. The whole area is amazingly green and quite enough to allow one to here what nature has to say

I feel this is one of those must do activities in Luang Prabang. Fabulous photo opportunities with torrents of water rushing past. Make sure you also visit the bears and butterflies as well.

Hi Alistair, There are lockers, but not all that many! Most people seemed to put everything in one bag, and then took turns guarding it. Another group had their guide do that job! Hope this helps Robbin
