Overview

About 6 km northeast of the town centre, the Lao Huay (Lenten) village of Ban Nam Dee (Good water) is a good place to observe the progress of bamboo papermaking. Behind the village you will see the entrance to the Nam Dee Waterfall. The area around the waterfall offers good facilities, like a small handicraft shop managed by the villagers; toilets and a house for picnics, etc.

Okay, the falls? Maybe 2 stars in the dry season (February) when there's basically no water -- more like wet rocks. Lol. Oops! We ended up walking around for a while bagging up trash that people had left from picnics. The park is nice, though...More

We cycled there; the road is really rocky and there is loads of nicer roads to cycle around Luang Namtha. It costs 10,000 kip for tourists and 5,000 kip for Lao people. It's not really that pretty compared to other waterfalls we have seen and...More

We rode our city bicycle there (take the mountain bike instead, the road is full of rocks). They tried to charge the bike even though we did not bring them inside. Then, they did not say anything about the fact that there was no water....More

I didn't like it at all. It's dirty, shady and in the dry season almost no water. You even have to pay 10.000 Kip for this waterfall

Do not expect a great waterfall nor great surroundings. The place is simple, they were doing some remodeling works so maybe they will make it more enjoyable with a couple of wooden bridges and a small platform. Nonetheless, the journey through the villages of different...More

If you go there by bicycle or you even walk you can explore the nearby villages a bit which are just beautiful. Some people still wear their traditional clothing and if you're lucky you will see some women in the Nam Dee village, the one...More
