Kuang Si Falls – Laos

When I asked a friend who lived in Luang Prabang if I should visit Pac Ou Caves or Kuang Si Falls he simply said both, so I knew that both had to be must-sees and that we would just have to visit them both! We tried really hard to get the cheapest possible tuk-tuk out to the waterfalls because that was the most expensive part of the trip out there, of course. This took us almost an hour and included men driving around with us in the back as they tried to wrangled up some more riders who we were informed to lie to about what we were paying so they could try to get more money from them. In the end, we got our ride at what we wanted to spend and made our way to the waterfalls. The big tip I would give is to go in the morning and spend all day there. We went in the afternoon and only had limited time before the park closed and our tuk-tuk ride came with a limited time because we got it so cheap.


When you walk to the waterfalls it takes you through this Bear Rescue Center with a handful of Asiatic Black Bears & Malaysian Sun Bears, which are so cute!


I love being out in nature and waterfalls are one of my favorite types of natural sites, so I completely fell in love with these! Although Stacey and I ran out of time before closing to get up to the super tall falls that this area is known for, these smaller falls are just as striking and would alone be worth visiting. We walked through falls, bathed in turquoise pools and just enjoyed the scenery. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Kuang Si Falls is a Luang Prabang / Laos must-see. Don’t do what we did, though. Take the whole day to truly enjoy the natural beauty of these stunning falls, picnic and relax.

    Hi Paige, I have actual internet service so I’m playing catch up on your blog (my phone doesn’t play nice with other wordpress blogs for some reason) and these falls are beautiful! Fantastic shots!

      Thanks for checking it out! Where are you these days? It’s a really beautiful place. I wish that I had had so much more time there so I could’ve explored even more of the natural sites.

        I loved all your photos, Paige, particularly the waterfalls and mountains. I’m currently headed back through ontario to Niagara Falls then into upstate NY and the Adirondacks.

          Thank you so much, Meghan! I was pretty fond of the mountains and falls as well! I’m envious of you getting to see Niagara Falls! I haven’t been there since I was 11 or 12; I would love to go back! I can’t wait to see your posts on the Adirondacks too! Have a great time, as always!

            The falls were impressive but soooo many people. Still, I’m very glad I finally got to see them! Take care!
