Luang Prabang is the lovely former capital of Laos. This small town is also one of the most attractive spots for visitors. Being known as a town of cultural richness and adoring architecture, however, Luang Prabang also boasts wonderful nature. You can experience its spectacular nature by visiting Kuang Si Waterfall – one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Asia and the must for any traveler to Luang Prabang.

Kuang Si Waterfall is about 30 kilometers from the center of Luang Prabang. It takes less than an hour to reach the famous waterfall. You can easily get there with a tuk tuk – a common transportation in Laos. Tuk tuk is particularly affordable and convenient, which enables you to see the beautiful surrounding and enjoy a very local experience. It is advisable to share in a group of around five people in a tuk tuk drive. The other option is to get to this wonderful attraction by bus.

Coming to Kuang Si, you will be in awe of the stunning beauty of the water and the fall. There are plenty of pools in which you can let your skin breath beneath the cool turquoise water and relax.

You should pay attention the sights, as in some of these pools are banned from swimming because they are considered sacred. Put the respect for the locals first, then goes the recreation.

Visitors could have a very nice chance to workout while hiking up toward the highest waterfall in the trail way aside from the main waterfall.

Besides the highlight of the spectacular waterfall, you can also have nice trip seeing the rich natural scene of the jungle surrounding this place. Kuang Si is ideally located within a national preservation park.

Another thing to expect is that you can see the bear (as this place is originally a Bear Sanctuary). Quiet and adorable black bears kept in here are endangered species that you might feel the honor seeing them.

It is among the most-visited places in Luang Prabang and there is barely anyone leaving this city without taking a look at this magnificent waterfall.  And if you’re going to Luang Prabang, you should definitely check this place once.
