As the waters run on ocher rocks and through colorful vegetation, the small natural pools get fuller. The beauty of this waterfall reaches its apogee during the rainy season when the flow becomes stronger and the water is clearer. Tad Sae remains pure and out of beaten tracks. The environment makes it an ideal place to enjoy a relaxing time, as it offers numerous natural pools in stairs where you can get hydro massages.

2. Kuang Si

Located 30 km south from Luang Prabang, Khuang Si is the most popular water waterfall of the country. After an adventurous trek through the mangrove forest, you break over the stunning turquoise water smoothly tumbling over low stone stairs. The largest lagoon offers the possibility to swing from a liana in the sparkling water. After a nice swim, the track continues while the shade is protecting you from the sun. The intense and unexpected flow brings the water down in a large pool where you can enjoy a fresh swim again.

3. Tad Fane

Your adventure tour to Laos is a perfect occasion to discover Tad Fane waterfalls. Nestled deeply in the jungle of the Bolaven Plateau, this double waterfall has very intense and striking flows. From the Tad Fane resort, the astonishing landscape spreads before your eyes’ view while you are supervised by an experienced guide to take a half-day trek to reach the falls. Tad Fane is a long walk from the resort and for this reason, very few people swim in its pure water.
