Everywhere in town, tuktuk drivers will ask you if you want to go see the waterfall. And by that, they mean only one... Kuang Si Waterfall. And everyone i’ve talked to said that it would be foolish not to see it. They were right. I was just speechless when I saw the waterfall. It is just so beautiful.
Located about 30 Km from Luang Prabang, the waterfalls is the most popular attraction in town. Once on site, the first thing you will encounter are the shallow pools on the hillside, and once you keep walking up several levels (which gets more breathtaking each step of the way), you will reach the main waterfall with a 200 ft drop.
To Go Up To Not. Beautiful as the waterfall may be, the climb up to the top of the waterfall is not one bit leisurely. It’s steep, it’s wet and slippery, and you don’t really get a good view of the water cascading down. Do climb up though if you intend to swing and swim on the pool on top. Other than that save your strength and just enjoy the view and the pools below.
