Great place but super busy...go early!
May 2020 • Friends
I Loved stopping at this place to see the Laos forest, the falls and the sun bears. I would have loved to have gone for a swim in the pools, but the crowds were intense ( and this was in February 2020 before COVID changed everything). Go early and take your time at the sun bear sanctuary...fantastic

great outing
Feb. 2021 • Family
great outing , as always loved the lush green and foliage growing on the way to the waterfalls . Great day with a bit of cloudness and cool weather . Then hot again but as we got there the kids jumped in . Water still cold .
We love it the small quietness during this time not a lot of people .
Good for family and kids

arranged with our hotel a guide to take us the falls

I highly recommend that you get there early, as this place gets very crowded. Not a great place to change your clothes if you want to go swimming, and the water is cold! Very beautiful. Steep climb up to the top that can be slippery.

So beautiful and so peaceful. The water is really clear and there are some little fish in the blue pond. Really recommend!

It's a wonderful fall. Water is clear and clean. There was a lot of people there. It's a great place to relax your mind with friends and family, 😉

Photos over sell it !
Dec. 2019
The photos make it look idyllic - it's not quite that amazing, but it is still pretty great.

We cycled there (before starting a longer trip) which was a tough enough daytrip with some decent hills. Lots of people took motorbikes/scooters which looked fun.

There's lots of places to eat just before you enter the park, and lots of kiosks to buy drinks.

Definitely worth a trip - and don't forget your swimwear!

Beautiful place
Dec. 2019 • Family
This is a great day trip. On a hot day you can dip in and the big fall at the end of the trail is really beautiful, almost magical. We also ate next the the big waterfall. Good food with a bit of extra price for location.

Bear resque area was also interesting (and sad) to see.

I would defenately go again.

this is one of the main attraction, so many tourists as well as locals go there and have a swim/splash
don't expect to be the only one there

Great day out, but take a swimming costume to get the best out of it.
Jan. 2020
We visited Kuang Si Falls on a trip, arranged through our Hotel (Villa Maly), where we had our own transport and the driver recommended other worthwhile visits on the way, such as the Bear Rescue Centre and an Elephant Sanctuary.

Entry to the Falls costs 20,000Kip and, although that sounds like a lot, is is actually only around £1.70 UK or $2.20 US. There are various levels to the falls, so my advice would be to wear trainers or other secure footwear, as parts of the climb can be quite slippery. We carried a small bag with us, with changes of footwear and clothes for when we wanted to get into the water. We also took light snacks and drinks.

The various levels are all stunning, but I particularly like the parts where it was easy to swim, as the water was beautifully clear and refreshing. There is one point where you can go out on a tree limb and jump off. So good I did it more than once. I'm 67 and found the walk easy, so it is not daunting in any way. Definitely not to be missed if you are spending any time in Luang Prabang, but do consider the Elephant Sanctuary on the way there, as they look after the animals there.
