Owner description: Directions; from the end of the night market road (Post Office end) turn left at the cross roads. Straight on until you reach 'T' junction then turn right. Go straight on out of town for about 4Km's and turn right where sign posted 'Tad Thong Waterfall' for a further 2.8Km's.The 500 hectare Tad Thong Nature Conservation area is easily accessible by Tuk Tuk, Car, Scooter, bicycle (geared preferably) or, for the more enthusiastic, on foot.Tad Thong is just 6km’s from Luang Prabang and offers a unique, paved, approx. 45 minute walk through dense jungle. For years the path has been hidden away from the public but is now open again for you to experience the beauty of the natural jungle and huge trees that once covered much of the land in this part of Asia.There is a Khmu village just off the trail which can be visited and when you have finished the walk you may wish to take a swim in the lake or eat and drink at the Restaurant. The waterfalls are spring fed, as are many of the falls in the area, and will reduce in size to just a trickle by the end of the dry season - but the Tad Thong area is more impressive as a Nature Jungle walk so the waterfalls should be looked at as a bonus and not the main reason for visiting.

Walked to the waterfall - amazing
You must have a swim in one of the pools whilst you are there
People were jumping in from trees which looked very dangerous

We stopped here for a swim and to take in the succession of beautiful falls and parklike atmosphere. It is graceful and peaceful...and many locals which added to the color and sense of intimacy.

this out of the way set of falls is smaller than the other more popular falls but well worth the trip. It is about 6-7km out of town - you can get there by bike if you are up for the some exercise and have a mountain bike - rough roads and mainly uphill getting there. but no busloads of Chinese tour groups which was a welcome change from other places we visited. food here was decent and the hike around the falls is lovely (but bring bug repellant)

We hiked around the falls as well as walked to the village to bring the kids gifts. If you are going to take a day hike the kids in the Village are sure happy with anything you might bring them. I think in total we saw maybe 20 kids. They don't have much so if you go maybe bring something for them. The hike is very nice and not hard at all.
