The Kuang Si Falls in Laos (SEA 63)
Today I went out with Olga, Lucasz, Aurelie, Marco from Florence und 2 French guys to visit the Kuang Si Fall 32 km away from Luang Prabang. This trip was absolutely wonderful. The main waterfall is one of the best I´ve seen is Asia so far. The water was turquoise like the sea. We all brought our swimming shorts or bikinis. We jumped into the ice cold water and had a picnic next to the water. On the late afternoon we drove back to the city.
The Kuang Si Falls
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. 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 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.
Tomorrow I want to get up very early to see the monk procession in Luang Prabang. Let´s see if I can get up that early.
