Enchanting Kuang Si Waterfalls
The largest and most breath-taking of Luang Prabang’s waterfalls, Tad Kuang Si, boasts an impressive three tiers of falls, culminating in a sensational 50 meter cascade, before spilling into a series of mineral-rich turquoise pools. Pathways lead through the forest alongside these pools towards a charming wooden bridge where the falls can be enjoyed in all their splendour.
The water in Kuang Si’s shallow pools remains cool throughout the year. Therefore, a popular swimming spot for locals and tourists alike. Especially in the summer months when escaping the heat becomes a priority.
