We visited the waterfall in January. This was the nicest waterfall I've ever seen. I liked it better than the Niagara Falls :)

Situated approximately 45+ minutes from Luang Prabang, this is a nice day outing to consider. Easiest and cheapest way is via tuk-tuk, and although affordable it won't be very comfortable riding in either direction. Hiring a private car was much nicer and relaxing, and it...More

The terrace pools with clear blue water look like Jiuzhaigou in Sichuan Province of China. The shape of the waterfall is very special. Interesting point is the biggest pool where lots of young guys jump from a big trunk into the water.

My friend organised a LAK50,000 per person trip in a minivan. they aren’t the highest, they aren’t the longest, but they are great. It’s quite a demanding hike to the top, but worth it.

Water was COLD but you gotta go in for a swim! I saw some ppl said it was warm?? Not sure if it changes sometimes. It was a great experience tho. There are different sections but not all allows swimming.

The water was warm for swimming. You can take a path next to the falls to reach the crest. Nice serene place to visit.

There is a parking section to the left of the entrance, a lot of Tuk Tuks and taxis here but most will be waiting for people who already booked them. The best thing to do is get a Tuk Tuk or Taxi there, the fare they... More

Hi Alistair, There are lockers, but not all that many! Most people seemed to put everything in one bag, and then took turns guarding it. Another group had their guide do that job! Hope this helps Robbin
