An absolutely gorgeous waterfall, surrounded by lush vegetation. Many pools to swim in and still very untouched by commercialism. You get to see the black bears in the sanctuary situated in the same area.

Several pools for visitors to swim and cool off. Excellent waterfall towards the top of the falls. Lots of Restuarants outside the entrance to the falls.

I've already been to some pretty good waterfalls in my life, but I've never seen anything like Kuang Si! The emerald color pools that follow are perfect for swimming and relaxing. You even get "fish spa" if you stand still for a couple of minutes in the water! I think the best time to go is early morning, while the big groups still haven't arrived, but the water might be just too cold then. The place is really clean and the only cafe/restaurant they have inside serves a decent baguette sandwich. The hike to the top is not so worth it. Place is clean :) keep it that way.

It was pouring with rain...but that meant it was quiet; it must be really busy normally as it is a very popular site. lovely picturesque falls, and pools to swim in.

Paid 200,000 return kip for about a 40 minute each way tuk tuk out here, which was for four people, driver had a sleep and waited a couple of hours for us. Entrance was 20,000 kip each. Absolutely beautiful cascading waterfalls, the water was a milky turquoise blue, due to the limestone, you can swim in the lower levels, make sure you check out the black bears on the way in and buy something to support this worthy cause, would rate this as one of the highlights of my 2 weeks in Laos.
