Kuang Si Falls - Review
Kuang Si Falls or the Tat Kuang Si Waterfalls is a three-tier waterfall and a favourite day excursion of the people travelling to Luang Prabang. The water plunges down 60 meters through limestone-rich rocks and gets collected in aquamarine blue pools where visitors can enjoy a dip. The whole area is very cool as it is shaded by the thick vegetation around. As you enter, you will find marked walkways and bridges that will guide you. Through the right-side of the falls, you can lead up to a hike that will take you to the top of the mountain where you can have a breath-taking view of the surrounding valleys. You can also visit a bear sanctuary near the waterfalls which does not have any entrance fee. These bears are rescued from the poachers and kept in a protective enclosure.

Kuang Si Falls, Luang Prabang Reviews
AN ABSOLUTE MUST SEE! Some TIPS - Go on a day when it has not rained for a few days because the water will be a beautiful blue - after it rains the water turns muddy. Also climb to the top - fantasic experience. If you go up the left side you will find part of the trail is a staircase that is covered in water. Super fun to climb but take water shoes for this part of the trail or take your shoes off. When the trail is wet it is slippery so be careful. Swimming in the river is also a fantastic experience although again, water shoes are recommended as the bottom had sharp spots. I also think there are fish in there that will nip at you so keep moving. I don't think they are dangerous fish and they certainly don't bite but it can be a bit unnerving. Also, I went close to the waterfalls and cut my back on a submerged rock so be very careful when you swim around. Also, when I was someone dove in from a tree branch and broke his nose because he hit the bottom of the river. Again, if you are careful in the river you will be fine and after a hot climb to the top of the falls (again do it for sure but wear proper foot gear and take your time) the cool swim was very refreshing.
Loved the biking experience & the fall too. Start early morning around 7 am, so you can reach by 8 am & come back by 11 am. There are cafes before the ticket counters which are really cheap and makes delicious food. There is a big parking at 2000 Kip only for motorbikes & cars. All waterfalls were really beautiful & also to see the rescued bear was great.
Worth the drive out of Luang Prabang to this natural beauty. Bring your swimming gear and dive into the refreshing waters. It can get crowded during the day after 10am with lots of tour groups and families but there's enough space for everyone. If you want solitude then go around 8am. Don't do the walk to the top because there is nothing up there. Better to do spend time in the water. Some nice restaurants outside entrance. Souvenir shops are expensive.
Amazingly beautiful waterfalls. Do not risk your life riding motorcycle up there. 50000 kip both ways at tour companies & guest houses. Have seen so many people getting injured on their way on motorbikes.
beautiful water fall and wonderful bears. Free the Bears is a great company with the bears being their only priority. Please donate
