The elephant ride in Tad Sae waterfall was enjoyable and my daughter got to sit on the elephant's head. We paid about $15 for the ride. To get there, you need to take a tuktuk from LPB town before getting onto a small boat to the waterfall. It's less crowded than KuangSi Waterfall which is a little farther than this waterfall.

We visited these waterfalls as part of our day trip to the Elephant Village sanctuary, were taken upstream in a ferry boat. Really pretty waterfalls, lovely place to swim and cool down. Not many people when we visited in the early afternoon. Can highly recommend.

This was a very pretty location and beautiful waterfall about 40 minute drive out of Luang Prabang. We rented motorbikes and made the trip out ourselves. The highway leading out was rife with potholes and bricks in the middle of the road, so take care. The turnoff onto the dirt road is also easy to miss (we did!). Once you arrive in the village you park and pay for parking, then walk down through the village to the river and pay for a boat to take you to the location. Once there, you pay again to enter the waterfall site. So bring lots of kip! It ended up being about kip 50k per person in the end but it did make us feel like we were constantly pulling out our wallet to pay someone! It would have been nice to have been warned because with 4 people, that adds up. The place was very quiet when we arrived around 3:30 pm - no elephants, no people, nothing. We stayed about 15 minutes and looked at the pretty falls and then left. If you like natural beauty, this is worth a visit. But otherwise it was just okay.

Don’t miss these waterfalls. We took a combined trip with kayaking and the waterfalls. After lunch back in the Kayak again. We thoroughly enjoyed it. It is also a nice romantic setting for couples and single travelers will also enjoy it as here are other travelers around to share travelers’ tales.
If you go to Luang Prabang it would be a real petty to miss this waterfall.
