It takes 45 minutes by tuk tuk ride to reach the beautiful Kuang Si Falls outside of Luang Prabang in Laos. The road is narrow, the bridges dubious, the heat oppressive, but the trek is totally worth it. It’s a about a 10-15 minute walk up to the top of the falls, where the water falls down over 200 ft.
The water continues to cascade down, forming pools along the way. My group definitely took advantage of these pools. The water was almost too cold, but we were so hot that we stayed in the pool about an hour! We air-dried on the tuk back into town, singing songs and dancing with the driver of the tuk behind us 🙂
