“Very Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

One of the most beautiful places I’ve seen on earth. If I could, I’d probably drop some of the ‘wats’ from my trip and spend more time here! The blue of the water fall bed is simple gorgeous, almost like a jewel tone. And it is so condusive to just jumping into the water and enjoying a day in the heart of nature. I want to go back to Laos just for this place.

“One of nature's greatest attractions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

One of the best tourist attractions near Luang Prabang. If you're staying in the city, you should also plan a trip to nearby areas, such as this one. The falls are just a wonderful view and can be stress relieving. You can see people bathing in the waters when it gets hot. Just take care not to get swept away! ( just kidding!! )
It's about an hour's drive away from Luang Prabang and definitely worth the trip.

“Great attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Great day out,

Started by hiring a motorbike from the centre of Luang Prabang for 100,000 kip to take the 30km ride through amazing Laos country side. We left at about 9.30 and the roads we very empty which my the journey very enjoyable.

Because we left early the crowds had not arrived at the falls so was fairly quite. We first made our way to see the bear sanctuary which is not advertised enough, this would be worth seeing on their own. After the bears came the waterfalls and they are beautiful, more of them then I expected. Make sure you see the main one at the top and also... You can only say you've been to the waterfalls if you have jumped in for a swim :) (only in the areas specific for swimming)

Be careful, in the wet season or after heavy rain the current of the water can be strong in the middle of the pools.

If you are hungry at the end, avoid eating in the area outside the gates and instead, stop in one of the villages on the way back.

“You'd be a fall not to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Took a Day trip to Kuang Si Falls with a large group. Turned out to be one of the most memorable experiences of our entire 6 week trip in SE Asia. The views are breathtaking. The waterfalls are idyllic, colourful and provide many stunning spots for your next cover photo. You can swim in the turquoise blue pools, jump off waterfalls and trees, and feel completely safe. It is easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited and there was no feeling more liberating than jumping off the waterfalls into the depths of the pools below. Enjoy!

“Charming waterfall with clean crystal water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Beautiful place, a must to go if u are in Luang Prabang, its a nature getaway from the rustic and charming street.I have no sunbear photos under my link but the water is crystal clear.

was happy to have visited this waterfall before the wet season arrived.Rock climbing are forbidden in July and kayaking are dependent on the weather.If you love nature, avoid Laos in July altogether.I was glad to be in Kuang Si Waterfall on the last day of June.

I did a tour that brought me to Pak Ou caves , that one could kayak over in an individual kayak trip.However, I did not take it as the water was calm and it did not pose any fun to mere row for hours.So I took the package of Pak Ou Caves + 1 village + Kuang Si waterfall + 1 village

Slow boat to Pak Ou Cave was rocking everyone on the boat to sleep, 2 hours!!! 2 hours on a slow boat that was noisy and Pak Ou Cave was not fantastic neither.

Alas, Kuang Si Waterfall, a travertine waterfall,by tuk tuk from Luang Prabang will cost 40 000kip, the tuk tuk driver would try to get like-minded so it would end up with at least 5 travellers per trip.
