Kouang Si Waterfalls , Laos

The Kuang Si Falls, sometimes spelled Kuang Xi or known as Tat Kuang Si Waterfalls, is a three tier waterfall about 29 kilometres (18 mi) south of Luang Prabang in Laos. These waterfalls are a favourite side trip for tourists in Luang Prabang. The falls begin in shallow pools atop a steep hillside. These lead to the main fall with a 60 metres (200 ft)cascade. The falls are accessed via a trail to a left of the falls. The water collects in numerous turquoise blue pools as it flows downstream. The many cascades that result are typical of travertine waterfalls. [wikipedia]

 

About 30 miles outside of the city of Laong Prabang you’ll come across the Kouang Si Waterfalls. The tranquil falls aren’t too demanding as they glide over the rocky embankment into the wading pools below. This is an amazing destination for day-trippers wanting to relax before heading back to the hustle and bustle of city life.
