We cycled here from Don Det, the ride here was pleasant but we could only cycle as far as the entrance to the waterfall park. The cost was 35000 kip per person, we came in low season so there wasn't much to do. They advertise...More

I visited this place today afternoon. I'm staying on Don Det island and tracking to the waterfall was about 6 kilometers, but it is actually worth seeing. You can feel the Power of Nature there. Mekong river has a very fast current now and no...More

It's just 35'000 kip per person, but still. The whole complexe is not maintained although you can see that the concept once was nice. ut it seems that nothing of the entry fee money is being invested for maintenance.

35Kip entry fee...very reasonable. Well laid out, plenty of good observation points for these waterfalls. Wooden walkways to get around...will occupy a decent 30 minutes of your travel time.

Facilities, including cafe and toilets at beginning. Buffalos hogging the upper-falls ‘swimming area’ when we visited - lol! Very pretty upper-falls intro that only gets more mind-blowing as you walk along edge and realize that water is falling from 180 degrees in spectacular volume. Walk...More

Definitely worth the entrance fee. The area is well maintained and clean. There also under construction building and not sure when it will be finished. There are many viewing points with excellent views of the waterfalls. Endless photo taking.

I would reccomend renting a motor bike for around the equivalent of $5-10 USD. In my opinion that's the only way to do it, I recently spent a full week riding a motorcycle from Pakse to Sekong, Attapu and back to Pakse... More
