Well worth the time and effort to visit, wear comfortable shoes good for steep steps and rocky surfaces. The waterflow fluctuates with the rainfall and it was coming pretty good when we were there. Great place for a swim on a hot day!

Not far from Pakse you can come by motorbike. But for now March 2018 the road is under construction and very dangerous. You have to walk down very steep ladder to witness the beauty of the fall. You also can take a rest and swim...More

A picturesque waterfall which luckily had very few visitors there when I visited. Do yourself a favor and skip the unimpressive Bolaven Plateau loop and just make a day trip from Pakse to this and Tad Fane.

The falls, located on the Bolaven Plateau, about 40 km east of Pakse, are definitely worth visiting. The water splashes down in the middle of a lust rainforest. Beautiful to watch - but also offering a number of trails to explore the area.
