Luang Prabang city is now considered as Laos’ foremost tourist showpiece. The tropicalatmosphere intensely becomes an identity of this city. The hidden waterfall, Tat Kuang Si, is located only 45-50 minutes away from the city by Tuk-tuk. By only spending 20,000 kip, we can enjoy the great waterfall. Tat Kuang Si is a multi-tier waterfall with several cascades and turquoise water underneath. All of the natural pools are open for swimming, except this one pool that believed as a sacred place. The water is so cold as trees surround the area; yet swimming in Tat Kuang Si is very soothing especially in sunny days. Small wooden huts and picnic benches are also available in the area, which makes it perfect for family outings. It is possible for us to climb to the top of the waterfall by using the trails; the journey will be hard as the trails are steep and slippery, but the view of Tat Kuang Si from the top is gorgeously worth it.
