    Great trip to the Falls. Worth the trip!
    We visited the falls after our driver said that there was still plenty of water (and not too much water) in them. The falls were beautiful. It’s quite an extensive area and we probably spent about two hours there. We also stopped for a drink at the little cafe near the top of the falls. Be sure to go all the way to the top — it’s not that hard and worth the effort. Our driver was Somsay. You can reach him on WhatsApp at +856 20 52 990 009. Highly recommended.

    Incredible site
    The falls themselves are quite an incredible site. The water cascades over limestone rocks with lush greenery framing the picture. The lovely turquoise colored pools of water made the experience truly magical. The water was quite cold in comparison to the ambient temperature so it was a great way to cool off on the hot humid day.

    Beautiful natural retreat
    Set within a national park the falls and surrounding forest are a beautiful escape from Luang Prabang. The 1 hour drive is scenic through villages and rice fields and lots of little bridges over creeks. The road is not well kept and full of pot holes so a car or van is more comfortable. There is no need to take a tour, just get your hotel to organise their favourite driver and off you go. If you go in the morning you will miss the tour groups that arrive in the afternoon. Once you pay the incredibly cheap entrance fee you are shuttled about 2km up the road in electric buggies to the forest. We walked straight up the road to the top viewing area and then made our way down along the forest trail that follows the falls. There are several pools that you can swim in, and one we had all to ourselves! The most popular pool was quite gravelly underneath but one of the others was full of sharp rocks which can’t be seen because of the cloudy water. The water was cool but very refreshing once you are in. The bear sanctuary appeared to be under renovation when we visited but we were still able to view some bears in two of the enclosures. We easily spent 3 hours at the falls including a visit to the Butterfly Sanctuary.

    The Power and Beauty of Mother Nature
    This is a must do when staying in Luang Prabang. I followed the advice of other reviewers and travelled early, arriving at just after the opening time of 08:00. This meant that by the time I reached the waterfalls I was the only person there and remained so for a good 15 minutes. Even 45 minutes later only another dozen or so people had arrived. The waterfall itself is an incredible experience - the sound of the water is just as breathtaking as the sight of it. Absolutely a must do.

    I’ve never seen a waterfall like this before
    Visiting this waterfall was the main impetus why I wanted to visit Laos with my husband. The falls themselves looked amazing in all the photos I saw, and the green water! Oh, my god that water! However, it rained hard the day before we visited, and the water was murky and brown, and not at all inviting for a swim. That being said, it was still a fabulous experience to see the incredible falls. It was quite crowded because everyone wants to see it. But it was a wonderful experience nonetheless. An extra added attraction was the bear sanctuary. We managed to time our visit to seeing the bears being fed. That was more fun than anticipated. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a waterfall like this one before. So many different levels and layers, and the huge amount of water going over… it really should be seen, no matter what color the water is that day.

    Beautiful and a must do outing!
    A wonderful wonderful place to go to! If you are in Luang Prabang you simply cannot miss this. Pristine water flowing throughout the area and nice little places to sit and eat alongside makes this a special place to be. A short trek takes you to the top of the waterfall where you can actually swim in the water!

    Easily a highlight of the Luang Prabang region
    This attraction was in all the guidebooks, so naturally we had to do the touristy thing and give it a visit. And we were so glad that we did. The complex was made up of three fairly beautiful waterfalls, all of differing heights with the main falls being the highest. Over a long period of time, the river that cascaded from the various falls had helped to create pools at several levels. These pools were attractions in their own right, with a fair number of visitors choosing to take a dip in the cool waters. Accessing the falls was easy with a fairly well-kept visitors trail that included a few bridges although some sections could be somewhat wet and/or muddy. In addition, apart from there being no safety handles at the points of entry into the pools, the water's edge also appeared to be a little slippery, so those choosing to take a dip should be careful. Needless to say, there were no lifeguards on duty. Being in the forest, the trail also proved to be a nice nature escape with flowering shrubs and butterflies being a common occurrence.

    Beautiful relaxing morning
    Arrived at 8 and there were only a few people there that early, by the time we left at 10 it was much busier but still ok. If you’re there for the nature I’d suggest getting there early. The path to the very top of the falls is a little difficult and you’re not missing much if you can’t manage it. They seem be be constructing a new staircase/path so I imagine it’ll be easier in the future. The water is beautiful and obviously pretty cold, very glad we had water shoes to enter as there were numerous branches and rocks. Couldn’t see any showers but the water is refreshing enough you don’t even really feel like you need one!

    Better than the pictures
    Well worth the drive. These waterfalls are magical, and present so many Instagram opportunities. Easy, family-friendly hike once you are dropped off by the shuttle. Don't forget to wave hi to the rescued bears and visit the butterfly museum :)

    Worth the trip!
    Really enjoyed visiting here - climb to top is perfectly doable but steep. Wouldn't have wanted to descend in the rainy season! I'd advise getting here early - crowds had really built up by late morning.

  • Tad Thong Waterfall Hotels
    Directions; from the end of the night market road (Post Office end) turn left at the cross roads. Straight on until you reach 'T' junction then turn right. Go straight on out of town for about 4Km's and turn right where sign posted 'Tad Thong Waterfall' for a further 2.8Km's.The 500 hectare Tad Thong Nature Conservation area is easily accessible by Tuk Tuk, Car, Scooter, bicycle (geared preferably) or, for the more enthusiastic, on foot.Tad Thong is just 6km’s from Luang Prabang and offers a unique, paved, approx. 45 minute walk through dense jungle. For years the path has been hidden away from the public but is now open again for you to experience the beauty of the natural jungle and huge trees that once covered much of the land in this part of Asia.There is a Khmu village just off the trail which can be visited and when you have finished the walk you may wish to take a swim in the lake or eat and drink at the Restaurant. The waterfalls are spring fed, as are many of the falls in the area, and will reduce in size to just a trickle by the end of the dry season - but the Tad Thong area is more impressive as a Nature Jungle walk so the waterfalls should be looked at as a bonus and not the main reason for visiting.
