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
We've seen quit a few of them in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. And this is for sure one of the most beautiful! Not only the cascades themselves are very nice, not to speak of the blueish water and the pools where you can have a refreshing swim. It's also CLEAN (really!) which cannot be pointed out enough. Further, the bear sanctuary is also one of the best I've seen, and I'm not a fan at all of captured wildlife. but this makes sense and the bears seem to be happy (donate money, the sanctuary does not receive a share of the entrance fee to the waterfall!). Go early in the morning before the buses with loads of people arrive (you can easily do the trip by yourself with a motorbike) and enjoy an early lunch at one of the lovely ladies BBQ restaurant at the entrance.
It is breathtaking! I definitely recommend to take a swim but make sure you stay in the swim area. The water wasn't that cold either. Go up to the top to enjoy it to the fullest. Unfortunately it gets very crowded. Less in the morning though, so I recommend to go early. Also, try to be environmental friendly. not sure how long the place will stay as nice if everyone keeps leaving the trash in the nature. Entrance fee is 20.000 kip. If you book a tour you usually get 1h30 there and its enough time to do it all; walk around, take pictures, swim and enjoy the walk to the top.
Amazing! The waterfall is way better than the photos. It's such an amazing and relaxing place. Of course it's packed with tourists so make sure you arrive very early if you want to avoid the crowds. Plus, it's deftnetly worth rent a bike and go there riding.
Bring towels, swimsuits, and food for a relaxed day. Only T-shirts and tank tops are sold inside the fall. Photographers, Go early if you want good pictures without the crowd. The crowds usually come after 1pm. Food and souvenir markets are at the entry gate.
Yes it's touristy but also one of the most beautiful waterfalls you'll ever see! The moon bear sanctuary that you pass through on the walk up is well managed, worth a visit as well as a donation so they can continue their good work!
