tour details

Admire the breathtaking Kuang Si Waterfall and enjoy a sunset along the Mekong River just outside of Luang Prabang.

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995, Luang Prabang is one of the most impressive cities in Laos. As you depart for your tour, you’ll make your way past the town’s crumbling French architecture of downtown, to the dense tropical jungle surrounding the Kuang Si Waterfall. These impressive cascades tumble over multitiered limestone formations into cool, clear pools that are ideal for swimming and relaxing.

Stops include the Hmong Ban Na Ouan village, a visit to the Butterfly Park, lunch at a popular restaurants serving both western and Lao cuisine, seeing the rescued bears of the “Bear Lao” Bear Sanctuary and, of course, spending time soaking up the natural beauty and refreshing waters of the falls. For the return journey to Luang Prabang, take a picturesque cruise along the Mekong River as the sun sets.

tour description

After breakfast, your private guide and driver will meet you in the lobby of your hotel to drive about 30 kilometres to start your day of discovering Kuang Si Waterfall. On the way, enjoy a stop at Ban Na Ouan, a Hmong tribal village, walking around to witness the daily way of life of this ethnic minority group.

Next, it's onto the Butterfly Park where you'll be surrounded by colourful different butterfly species in a relaxing setting accompanied by the soothing sound of the waterfalls. You'll also have the option of enjoying the natural fish spa while attracting a butterfly to land on your hand. Proceeds from this park ensure your visit makes a sustainable impact on the education of local children on biology and how to take care of our incredible planet.

Afterward, continue to the restaurant Carpe Diem, which is situated 150 metres before Kuang Si Waterfall, to indulge in a culinary delight in a magical atmosphere. Savour excellent western and Lao dishes prepared by a young French chef then, after lunch, enjoy the natural pool or relax with a massage in an idyllic setting at the base of the falls.

Next, it's time to spend part of the afternoon discovering the Kuang Si Waterfalls. On your way to the falls, stop at the "Bear Lao" Bear Sanctuary and see the bears, which are rescued from bear bile farms and illegal private zoos, in their rehabilitation enclosures. Stroll along Kuang Si Waterfalls where you can admire clear blue water pools, let yourself be carried away by the beauty of the landscape, go for a refreshing swim or, for the bravest, climb up to the top of the falls via a small path.

For your return journey to Luang Prabang we recommend taking a picturesque cruise along the Mekong River. Simply relax and soak in the end of a beautiful day with an unforgettable sunset.
