Brief Directions

Arranged minivan escort from town of Luang Prabang, its 29km south of the Loatian Town of Luang Prabong. The main giant waterfall called Kuang Si Falls is the main attraction although I preferred this smaller lesser know fall that can be found by the various streams that lead up to Kuang Si falls. Few are willing to get wet for a better wide angle shot.

Notes

This was taken in a very wet region so I would advise you to go during the dry season of April to November. I struggles during monsoon season and shot this in late September so i learned the hard way.

Description

Shot from above in a small stream wearing rainboots and hip waders. Beautiful waterfall that can be heard from up to 500 meters away. The water I was standing in was crawling with leeches! Some got me as on the thighs even though I thought I was well covered. It was worth it for this shot.
