On my last day I took a minivan with 8 others to Kuang Si Falls about an hour drive from Luang Prabang. It is a spectacular series of at least a dozen waterfalls of various sizes. It is a nice jungle setting as you walk up to he top revealing each waterfall. Above is the largest waterfall. There is also a Bear Rescue Refuge there. Some cafes at the top and usual kiosks of food and clothing items at the bottom.
First the Bear Rescue area:
The pathway up to the falls thru the rainforest:
The falls start with shallow drops thru wide and narrow areas giving a variety of visions:
Gradually the drops become greater until the big ones near the top:
The play of light on these falls was interesting:
After lunch at a small restaurant over looking the big falls I walked backed down to the bottom and had a couple of nice views:
One child tried to present me with a menu so I could buy from her mother:
A very nice way to spend the day!
