If you visit this waterfall be sure to go all the way to the top! You will walk past a few small pools with travellers bathing in the lovely fresh waters but the best view is along the track and up a seemedly unmarked slope which leads to the best view and emptiest pool (empty of other travellers).

You can triumphantly take a more leasurely dip on the way back down.

Take at least 2 hours exploring here. We took 3 hours which seemed just right.

We were a little disappointed here because we had heard so much about the menthol blue water. Well not in the rainy season! It is a muddy brown. And the water was raging so much that it was quite dangerous trying to cross the rocks. It was an okay trip out there (quite a long 45 min drive) but didn't come away terribly impressed. The best part was our muddy hike up to the top of the falls because we felt like we were off the beaten path and it was an adventure getting to the top. (No view at the top though). We were there late in the day in the rainy season and there still were a lot of people so I can't imagine what it is like in good weather.

After a ride on the Mekong and a very bouncy ride in the back of a Ute this was an amazing place to cool off in the heat. The beautiful aqua colored water pooling down the mountain from the falls themselves were extraordinary.

One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen, Ice blue lagoons and waterfalls. Jump in and cool off. Every photo will look like a postcard and you will be the envy of all of your friends. It is a Must if you go to Laos.
