This wonderful sight was only about 50 mins from Luang Prabang- I organised a shared minivan that cost 50000kip from one of the tour operators in town. They pick up at 11:30 or in the afternoon, drive you there, wait for a few hours (they...More

Do not let go to the top of the waterfall. It's not easy to climb, but the end result is fantastic. Once at the top, enjoy some good dives and gain energy for the descent.

Sure, climb up the falls for a much better swimming expertise in the key pools. It's packed in the ground level pools rather than all areas of the waterfalls are available for swimming. There are changing huts so that you can switch to bright clothing...More

but crowded. We have seen three of four of the world’s famous waterfalls, and these are definitely worth seeing because of the beauty of the setting rather than the ‘size’ or height of the falls. Very pretty jungle walks to get to the falls, and...More

Amazing waterfall! Used mini van service to get here and had more than enough time! Hiked to the top for beautiful views! Water flowing fiercely at the moment and looks stunning. Loved swimming in the refreshing waters. Bear sanctuary was kinda cute as well!

We trekked up the bear side and falls just got more impressive as we went. Go in the morning before the Chinese tour groups. Did not swim, but remained in dry clothes.

Great looking falls with lots of amenities this is not a place to go for solitude as it is busy. If you want to have a cool swim after seeing the sights and followed by a drink and food this is a good venue

There is a parking section to the left of the entrance, a lot of Tuk Tuks and taxis here but most will be waiting for people who already booked them. The best thing to do is get a Tuk Tuk or Taxi there, the fare they... More

Hi Alistair, There are lockers, but not all that many! Most people seemed to put everything in one bag, and then took turns guarding it. Another group had their guide do that job! Hope this helps Robbin
