    Incredible
    The waterfall was so amazing to see in real life. It’s so much bigger than it looks in photos. We went in rainy season so it was extremely powerful with a lot of back spray. We were unable to walk all the way along the hiking path as we would’ve gotten soaked but it was still an incredible experience.

    Beautiful Waterfall
    Definitely a must see waterfall. There were many locals picnicking at the top of the waterfall. You can get close to the edge, but be careful! When you go down the stairs you will see a beautiful waterfall, even during dry season.

    Impressive waterfall
    Impressive waterfall even in the dry season. You can walk half way down to a view point or go down to the bottom. There is also a way of getting to stand at the top behind the drop but we didn't do that. Our guide informed us that in the wet season it's much more impressive and you often get soaked from spray at the view point

    Best waterfalls in Pakse
    On our day trip to the Bolaven Plateau, we have several waterfalls pinned on the map. A couple were underwhelming and the rest we gave up going because the road was very dusty and rough, we don't want to risk getting a flat tire in the middle of nowhere. Tad Gneuang was the best waterfall we've seen. The fee was 20,000 kip per person and 5,000 kip for the motorcycle. From the parking area, there are souvenir shops and restaurant. Then there's the stream and a lot of areas to waddle and swim. We walked farther and found the steps that lead us to the bottom of the waterfalls. It's majestic and worth every penny, time and effort. Please take your trash with you and throw them properly. It's disappointing to see trash scattered around.

Lovely waterfall!tou arrive at the top and then have to walk down about 200 steps you see it from the bottom. Worth it though. Reasonably nice restaurant with good food. Areas to paddle st the top but lots of locals sat around watching made me feel to conscious.

You can walk down to the bottom of the waterfall and get completely wet or you can splash your feet in the pools just meters before the water goes over the edge. There are covered seats if you want to enjoy a picnic.

We visited during the time of closed international borders and there were very few visitors but there were plenty of sellers trying to keep up an atmosphere that was sadly lacking in most places we visited.

We came here November 2016 as a part of private day tour. I initially hesitated to get down. It looked bit scary. but just started to get down and reached the place. It was amazing and the whole place is misty from the waterfalls. you can go further down to touch water but the path is bit slippery.

Not far from Pakse you can come by motorbike. But for now March 2018 the road is under construction and very dangerous. You have to walk down very steep ladder to witness the beauty of the fall. You also can take a rest and swim in the lagoon.

Tad Yuang is only 40km away and 12km from Pakxong district, Champasak province, Laos.
From Pakse and Pakxong is well paved road, but before reaching the water fall is unpaved road. The waterfall is very well looked after and beautiful. You can see the beautiful view from the top of the waterfall, but if you want to see the main waterfall, You will have to follow the stair to the bottom, which takes you about 10mn. At the waterfall area, there are room for rent, souvenir shops and surrounded by lots of coffee plants. During October till the end of January the climate is very good.
Visitor who want to visit Tad Yuang can combine the trip with Tad Fane, which is only 2Km away.
The entrance fee is 10,000Kip(1,2 USD).

We had our own vehicle, so we went early and had the place to ourselves.
As we left 3 mini vans arrived and the a pack of people walked down to the waterfalls with music on loud speakers!!!
Steep steps to get up and down, but for the average person no issue.
We spent around 90 minutes here including some drinks at the nice restaurant.
Around 45 minutes from Pakse
10,000 kip to enter (40 Thai Baht)
Entrance to a site does not give you access to the other sites.
