It is a must see. Very beautiful place. The best time to go is in the afternoon. It will be hot in the afternoon but the water is cold. It takes an hour one-way and you probably will spend 2 hours at the waterfalls. Our hotel arranged transportation (tuk-tuk) for 32 usd.

I've always seen pics of this place and I was really impressed that when I got there it looked exactly like the in photos -no disappointment there! Waterfalls was beautiful, water was turqoise in colour. Took a quick dip in the pool, temperature was super cold but was really refreshing

If the weather is nice and you have at least half a day, definitely check out the Kuangsi waterfall! It actually consists of multiple tiny waterfalls and a big waterfall. It's very scenic and something that I think most people can appreciate. We took a tuktuk from Luang Prabang for about 170,000kip round trip (Feb 2017). The trip took 1... More

We've got there a little bit before 12. Not too crowded yet. Take taxi 40-45 minutes from the LPB city when you get there it's worth seeing. The water is clear and deep blue. Wonderful natural water. Wear the flip flops not sneakers. Wear rain jackets if don't wanna wet from the waterfall mist. Good half day activity. Recommend!

We booked our local tour and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this waterfall. Simply amazing! Had a lot fun clicking away and the scenery made for a very picturesque shot. Enjoyed a quick bite at the restaurant after trying out the cool water of the falls. Will have a lot of fond memories to bring home.

The only downside is the amount of visitors, but that does not make the views less nice. Just enjoy!

Good looking waterfalls but overcrowded. They do what they can to keep it clean. The first pool is more sunny than the others. Restaurant close to waterfalls ok.

It is located about an hours drive out of Luang Prabang. Private charter costs around 180000 to 200000 and shared tuk tuk should cost 40000-50000 kip. Arrive early to avoid the crowds and you can have the pools to yourselves although it can get chilly early in the day. The entrance fee is 20000 kip per person. The walk up... More
