The falls are actually located in a park located about 18 miles south of Luang Prabang proper - meaning the touristy downtown area. My hotel was located 15 miles from the falls. We used the hotel mountain bikes to make the trip though plenty of...More

Gorgeous easy hike past the bear sanctuary up to the many falls. Crystal clear Water, lots of pools to relax in and places to eat and sit. There’s a bridge across the river to take pictures and changing rooms to use.

It's an absolute must see whilst in the region. We took a private tuk tuk to the falls it was a rough and bumpy ride but the falls more than made up for it. They are stunning!

They really are as pretty as the pictures. Loved walking around the different levels. It is definitely slippery going up to the top but there are hand rails. It pays to get there early. Must go if in Luang Prabang.

Even though it is super crowded there is some space to be alone and get some pictures. It feels rather touristy, that's really my own critique.

We spent a couple of hours at this waterfall and didn't regret it! Do not book in Luang Prabang with book tours- it is overpriced. We booked a cab at our hotels and they are basically used to that. They offer pick-up time and drive...More

The waterfalls and naturally aqua-blue rock pools in this park are strikingly beautiful and the most outstanding natural wonder in the local area of Luang Prabang. An hour out of town by tuk tuk but well worth the time to visit for 2 or 3...More

The waterfalls are beautiful and a popular tourist attraction. There is the ability to swim in various “sections” of the river and falls. It is very popular with the Chinese tourists and can be quite crowded and busy in sections. You can purchase local food...More

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
