Trip Description

Not all waterfalls are created equal. Approximately 30 kilometers south of Luang Prabang on Route 13 North (see map), the multi-stepped falls at Kuang Si are remarkable. Rising in mist, the limestone staircase appears not only endless but is wholly enclosed by a multi-canopied forest. Is Kuang Si the result of a wizard in an outlandish outburst? Perhaps! There used to be a sign on Route 13 North marking the approach to Kuang Si but not now. However, the falls are well known to the inhabitants of Luang Prabang and just about anyone should be able to tell you how to get there. The site is particularly popular on Buddhist festival days during the rainy season when the water--its content high with lime--runs fast, runs deep. If you're the hail and hearty type, consider renting a motorbike (usually no more than US$5 per day) and biking there yourself with a Luang Prabang native as a guide. The road is quite good--paved. The scenery is fabulous--especially as you climb and cross the saddle between Xang and Xouang mountains. Rising more than 1,500 meters (over 4,500 feet), directly east will be a superlative view of Phouhin Namno. Be sure to carry your camera. Within half an hour you'll find yourself at a turnoff to Kuang Si. The turn is to the left, sharp, and in less than two kilometers you're at a village called En. This village is actively engaged in running the boats that carry passengers about two kilometers down the Nam Khan (Creeping River) to the point where everybody--natives and foreigners alike--walks a narrow path to Kuang Si.
