    Incredible
    The waterfall was so amazing to see in real life. It’s so much bigger than it looks in photos. We went in rainy season so it was extremely powerful with a lot of back spray. We were unable to walk all the way along the hiking path as we would’ve gotten soaked but it was still an incredible experience.

    Beautiful Waterfall
    Definitely a must see waterfall. There were many locals picnicking at the top of the waterfall. You can get close to the edge, but be careful! When you go down the stairs you will see a beautiful waterfall, even during dry season.

    Impressive waterfall
    Impressive waterfall even in the dry season. You can walk half way down to a view point or go down to the bottom. There is also a way of getting to stand at the top behind the drop but we didn't do that. Our guide informed us that in the wet season it's much more impressive and you often get soaked from spray at the view point

    Best waterfalls in Pakse
    On our day trip to the Bolaven Plateau, we have several waterfalls pinned on the map. A couple were underwhelming and the rest we gave up going because the road was very dusty and rough, we don't want to risk getting a flat tire in the middle of nowhere. Tad Gneuang was the best waterfall we've seen. The fee was 20,000 kip per person and 5,000 kip for the motorcycle. From the parking area, there are souvenir shops and restaurant. Then there's the stream and a lot of areas to waddle and swim. We walked farther and found the steps that lead us to the bottom of the waterfalls. It's majestic and worth every penny, time and effort. Please take your trash with you and throw them properly. It's disappointing to see trash scattered around.

I like nature and waterfalls and this is a good one. There is a trail / steps to take you down to the falls with lookout points. It can be a little steep / uneven in places but navigable.

The melodious sound of the waterfall makes you wanna stay for a couple of hours, just relaxing and enjoying it's beauty. This is a great place to visit, just a few km. away from Tad Fane.

You can walk down to the bottom of the waterfall and get completely wet or you can splash your feet in the pools just meters before the water goes over the edge. There are covered seats if you want to enjoy a picnic.

We visited during the time of closed international borders and there were very few visitors but there were plenty of sellers trying to keep up an atmosphere that was sadly lacking in most places we visited.

Not too far from Tad Fane but much better. You can walk down and get very close to the water fall. There are places to bring your picnics and have a great time. The coffee and restaurant in the compound has a great view and serves foods from fresh local produces

Lovely waterfall!tou arrive at the top and then have to walk down about 200 steps you see it from the bottom. Worth it though. Reasonably nice restaurant with good food. Areas to paddle st the top but lots of locals sat around watching made me feel to conscious.
