Located in Luang Prabang, Laos, Kuang Si is a breathtaking waterfall you shouldn’t miss.

The Kuang Si Falls has 3 tiers leading to a 50-metre drop into shallow pools, before flowing downstream. The pools make great swimming holes and you can change into your swimwear at wooden huts close to the waterfall’s entrance.

Surrounded by lush tropical jungle, the pools have cascades of up to 5 metres high. If you don’t fancy a swim, you can relax in the shade and watch others having fun jumping in and out of the water.The climate at Kuang Si Falls is noticeably cooler, making it a really good place to escape the heat.

In the dry season the water at Kuang Si  takes on a bluish hue, owing to the presence of minerals like copper. In the wet season the water is a deep green and you can hear the sound of the falls well before you can see them.
