About 45km from Luang Prabang but an interesting drive. Beautiful scenery at the falls with various aspects to the falls themselves including step falls, smaller falls and a very high section which was spectacular.
At the falls is also a park with a number of bears which have been rescued. This is also worth a look as this is a worthwhile cause.
Went for a swim which was good and if you want a free fish spa this is the place.
The place is really amazing! 110% recommended!

me and some friends got a mini van which was a good deal. the driver dropped us there and waited for us. you have to pay to get inside i can't really remember how much it was but i remember the waterfalls, i guess that explains already that its worth it to p[ay. it like a 30min trek to get on the highest level, the water is blue and nice to swim in if you feel a little too hot

There's two waterfalls in Laung Prabang. One is a 30-minute tuk tuk ride from the town and accessible only by a short boat ride. Our experience of it was a torrent (ok it was wet season), rotting wooden bridges (one of which collapsed when we were on it) and water that was too strong to swim in. They did, however, have elephants.

The second waterfall, Kuang Si, is an hour ride away and vastly superior. The water is duck-egg blue with many places to swim and plunge in, all most refreshing. Like natural jacuzzis. You can hike to the top of the waterfall for a stunning view, or stand pretty much right under it. No ropes or anything. It's amazing. Make this a must-see if you're visiting Luang Prabang. Oh, they also have bears there too. Caged, but they are rescue bears, so treated kindly

We went there 2 person with tuktuk for 140.000kip. It took about 1 hour to drive there from Luang Prabang. The waterfalls are wonderful and so fun too jump from the tree into the water and just walk around and enjoy the great view. Easy to take so beautyful pictures:) There is a place there to change clothes.

Pay a driver for the day and go under your own steam
Pack a picnic lunch and spend the day there.
It is beautiful!
Blue water, plenty of shade and only about 40 minutes from town......
Go prepared.......the amenities are very basic.
Change rooms are ordinary and the toilets AWFUL.

There are market stalls surrounding the car park.

The real bonus for us was The Bear Rescue...........we were not aware of this let alone being part of the park.
There's no entrance fee to this, but the opportunity to donate exists and T shirts etc are available for purchase.
A great little establishment and worthy of support - lots of information available on site.

The waterfalls / pools are wonderful and the Bear Rescue is the icing on the cake.........such a great day.
