Kuang Si Falls

These astonishing waterfalls are located around 30km south of Luang Prabang. The turquoise blue pools are breathtaking, though slippery. You can access them via walkways and bridges.

You can change into your swimwear in small wooden huts. The nearby shaded park contains picnic benches, so you can either bring food or purchase some on site.

Nearby you can walk to Free the Bears sanctuary. Free the Bears times to rescue and rehabilitate sun bears, lead campaigns in Cambodia and Laos against the illegal wildlife trade, protect wild bears and stop the suffering of these bears. The sanctuary cares for almost 40 bears who were destined for bile farms, where they would have been kept in tiny cages and ‘milked’ for bile in order to make traditional medicines.
