About
The impressive twin 120m waterfalls are located in the Dong Hua Sao National Park on the Bolaven Plateau.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Walked into the Tad Fan water fall from the coffee plantation at km (lak 40).
The water falls are huge but only the top two thirds are visible across the valley .
If you’re adventurous and solvent there’s the zip wire experience to take you there and back across the gorge and see the whole thing. The restaurant food at the viewpoint is very average . The best thing to do is walk with a guide for another hour and half to The water fall at Tat Gneuang which is magical and stunning . Not as big but much much better.

Did a Bolevan hike to 3 waterfalls of which this was the last. It was not a case of saving the best to last though. Although larger than the other 2 (tad yuang and tad champee) it for me was less impressive because you can't get close to it or see all of it. There is an impressive zip line here however although we didn't have time to try it out

We shared a tuk tuk with someone to visit some of the Bolaven plateau from Miss Noys bike shop. This was the highest of the 3 waterfalls we visited and it really is a sight to behold. We actually zip lined over the top of it for about 35 euro which was well worth it. The height is 230 metres and the length of zipline is 470 metres. Places for food and toilets close by also. Would definitely go back.

You can combine the visit of these two marvellous waterfalls with a great but a little strenuous jungle walk. It is often steep and you have often to grab roots and trees for a hold and you need good shoes. It will take you around one to two hours. It is a genuine jungle walk.You will cross two little rivers above the waterfall. The trail is shown on maps.me. You can take this trail in both directions. Both waterfalls are each less than one km from the road. The combination of the two waterfalls with the jungle walk is unforgetable.

I went to visit this place by encouraging from my friend, the nature is looking nice, but only can see the falls from a very far, unless you might need to take a tour with Zipline to beyond of the falls. don't get me wrong, there are plenty of activities and things you can see around, but when i was there it was abit annoying with a big group of chinese and thai tourists.

This is my first time visiting Tad Fane waterfall. The two waterfalls (about 140 meter high) look really splendid amidst the jungle. A lot of tourists during the day. The path to the lower lookout spot (which offer greater and closer views of Tad Fane) is quite small, so it could not really accommodate lots of tourists. We saw zip line for those who would like to see the bottom of Tad Fane from the brid-eyed view and for those who want to sip a cup of coffee in the other side as well.

120 m high waterfall majestically dropping into a watery inferno. The view from the resort (main viewpoint) is great, and even better due to the fact that the waterfall is surrounded by jungle - no artificial constructions are visible nearby.

The entrance is cheap (10 000 kip, ca. 1 USD), and viewing platform is well located.

There is also a zip-line above the waterfall that looks like an ultimate death wish, but perhaps some of you will be eager to try it.

The water fall is small, you can only see it from a distance. There’s a resort and a cafe/restaurant but it doesn’t look very inviting

Only useful if you enjoy ziplining
