For only 20,000 kip/adult (HK$19) -- An amazing place set in cool, lush forest vegetation with not too steep climb up through the valley. (You could also walk up/down the bitumen road which runs behind.) Beautiful water colours and went for a swim - (allowed in lower 2 falls only) which was COLD!! - but BEWARE it is slippy underfoot to get in, quite muddy. We arrived early (9am) so was not too crowded. There are toilets & changing rooms available and a café at the top. Large car park with some food stalls and 2 little cafes by entrance. Just gorgeous and well worth it!
(You can also walk through the Bear Rescue Sanctuary which was very good. Lots of large pens set in natural habitat and the bears seemed to be in good condition.)

The falls were gorgeous. But I wouldn't have gone had I realized it would be so crowded with tourists taking photos and being loud. I took a shuttle from town which took 1.5 hours each way and we were at the falls for 2.5 hours so this activity took all day.

Go there in the morning - you will get better pics and less crowd. If you have time visit the caves nearly 7 km away

We took an organised excursion here from Luang Prabang by minibus. We walked from the tourist shops by the car park, past a bear sanctuary, to the lower falls where we stayed a while to watch people jumping into the pools. Then we hiked up to the top of the falls (about 10-15 mins) and swam there also. We were only supposed to stay for 2.5 hours, but we negotiated with our driver to stay an extra 2 hours because it was so lovely. We used the extra time to do some more swimming and practice our photography of fast moving water with long exposure times. Definitely highly recommended for anyone in the Luang Prabang area.

Amazing views. I’d recommend getting there first thing in the morning. It isn’t busy. The bears are interesting. The waterfalls are simply spectacular make sure you bring your camera. We hiked to the top where there were more amazing views. The stair however are slippery and it hard work to get up and especially down this trail. Swimming in the waterfall was fun and I made sure to take lots of pictures. Taxi from Luang Prabang so cost no more than 80,000K for a return trip. The taxi will give you 2.5 hours at the waterfall.
