Kuang Si Butterfly Park opened their gates in 2014 to become the first butterfly park in Laos. This fantastic eco-attraction was founded by, Olaf and Ineke, a couple from the Netherlands who sold everything to move to Laos and begin a dream. In the course of four years, their hard work and vision has re-shaped the jungle around them. Everyone is welcome and anyone who appreciates the beauty and grace of nature will appreciate a stop.
Given that education is a priority for Butterfly Park, they are driven to raising awareness about the vulnerability of Laos’ ecosystem and the values of preservation. They are focusing on educating local schools and children about Laos’ amazing biodiversity. Biologists, botanists and entomologists visit the park to train their local staff and volunteers help them with guiding visitors and promoting the park.
The park hosts a nice café and sitting area over the pond offering baguette sandwiches and fresh salads. They also make a great latte and delicious homemade cake.
Kuang Si Waterfalls
A short 300m from Butterfly Park is the entrance to the largest and most breath-taking of Luang Prabang’s waterfalls. Tad Kuang Si boasts an impressive three tiers of falls. If considering a moderate trek to the very top of the falls, there is a trail to take you there. Bring along your swim gear if planning a swim in the refreshing turquoise pools.
