The waterfall is situated in the midst of a forest. Though sites like these seem "out of the way" - that is the way things are in Laos. You drive through kilometers of dirt roads, and then in the middle of nowhere, viola - Paradise...More

We took the Mountainbikes and cycled about 4 km along the road starting at the night market. Later at a junction you cycle 3km off-road to the waterfall. Make sure your bike has gears as it gets a little step. We met 1 other tourist...More

The falls are quite beautiful and provides a nice hike to see the multilevels of them. However we went mid afternoon when it was inundated by tourists. Much better to visit the falls early in the morning. You can swim at certain levels but since...More

So sad the amount of trash that made the experience less than special. The walk in the woods alone is great and the waterfall is nice but the amount of trash just ruined the place. The waterfall itself was nice but not too impressive. Especially...More

As they say, during the dry season the waterfall isn't worth visiting. However we went for the walk, and it was worth it. The waterfall is a small cascading stream. If you take the walk in an anti-clockwise direction you will follow the stream up....More

Not far from the downtown area, these falls are easily accessible. You can taxi, scooter, or tuk-tuk out there for not much money. The falls are really nice and extremely peaceful. They are in great shape and almost appear to be man-made.
