Tat Kuang Si Falls in Luang Prabang, Laos

Tat Kuang Si Falls
Luang Prabang, Laos

The roller-coaster of a road to Tat Kuang Si Falls heads south of town through terraced rice fields before meeting up with the Mekong River and winding back up into the limestone hills. We putted past the farms and through the small dusty villages on our motorbikes, dodging some water buffalo meandering around the road, eventually ending up at a small village at the park’s gates where you can once again see the affect of tourism on the Lao economy – bamboo booths line all sides of the parking lot and walkway where local were hocking food and tourist-trap souvenirs to everyone entering the park.

After paying the 20,000kip entry fee, there was a gentle dirt path heading off into the jungle leading to a bear sanctuary for animals rescued from poachers and traffickers. Shortly beyond that was the first small set of falls. Tat Kuang Si Falls is a three-tier travertine waterfall consisting of small cascades over the course of half a kilometer. Emerald blue and turquoise pools lie below each cascade and with the exception of one sacred pool that’s restricted, they are open for swimming (rope swing included). Following the tumbling falls uphill leads to the primary 60 meter falls.

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    • Hi, I actually have been exploring changing my page and moving to a self hosted site. Right now, I’m limited to my theme and I’m just trying to find the time to migrate and design something new. It’s in the works though!
