About Kuang Si Falls, Luang Prabang
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.

Stunning! Great photo opportunities and lovely stroll up to the main waterfall. Recommend seeing the bear sanctuary first and then going to the waterfalls. Change rooms are available to swim (but some male tourists use the change rooms as toilets, so WEAR SHOES). Water is freezing but delightful and you will have fish nibble at your feet if you stand still (which ended my swim abruptly). Great experience overall! Be sure to stop at the Laos Buffalo Dairy Farm on the way to or from the Waterfalls (try the cheese and ice cream from buffalo milk)!
Love the scenery here! Perfect for a quick swim as well as picnic. There're benches around for you to sit and have your meal by the waterfall. There's also 2 trails, one for you to climb up and the other to go down. There's also designated areas for you to swim. Waters are real fresh and cooling. Should you want to swim, remember to bring your towel, slippers, swim wear, clothes to change back to and a bottle to contain water to rinse your feet off the soil after the swim. Beautiful place to be in.
Beautiful sight. Flooded with tourists. And with amazing views too of cuz. Tourist buses probably will be able to bring you to near the foot of the falls. Trek all the way up. The view at the top will be worth it. But the climb will be steep. And strenuous.
Definitely worth a visit. Didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. Bring swimmers. There are changing rooms. It's worth having a dip in the refreshing blue waters. Beware of uneven sharp rocks especially around the edges of the pool. There's a bear sanctuary that you would walk past to get to the waterfall. There were a couple of cute, very playful cubs. It was nice to see them having fun. Just around the entrance area to waterfalls / bear sanctuary are some local shops. The banana chips there are good!
Worth the journey, a nice mineralized water fall resulting in nice blue milky coloured water flowing over a smooth flow stone covered cliff face before running through a succession of pools some of which you can swim in. If you are fit there are steps to the top where you can paddle in Moore pools putt take a short raft trip further up steam. Be warned there are signs to a water cave restaurant at the top too but it is probably 2 to 3 km walk. There is even a bear rescue sanctuary at the bottom.
