Kuang Si Waterfalls

How can I describe the Kuang Si waterfalls?  This is the type of destination where you see a photograph of it in a coffee table book and think to yourself, “there’s no way a place like this exists on this planet.”  Well, believe it!  Though it draws a big crowd on the weekends - both locals and tourists - it’s busy for good reason.  The water is an unearthly shade of blue from the limestone, and just as refreshing as it looks!

From the parking lot it’s an easy 5-minute walk to the first pool, and the other 3-4 pools follow shortly after.  Take your pick and go for a swim!  The main pool has a popular jumping platform (a tree, actually) from which to put your acrobatics on display.  Whether you plan to swim or not, the Kuang Si Waterfalls are a beautiful stop on any Luang Prabang itinerary.
