29 Kilometers south of Luang Prabang (about one hour) are the Kouang Si Waterfalls where you can hike, swim and soak up the beauty of the surrounding area and picnic.
Before entering the park there are the usual street vendors selling local arts and crafts and delicious fare.
The waterfalls are definitely worth a visit with their soaring limestone surfaces and cascading drops they make for some memorable views and fun activities. Travellers can also visit hill-tribe people en-route to the cave. Beautiful scenery, flora and fauna surround the area.
