Travel Photo: Kuang Xi Waterfall near Luang Prabang, Laos

This place is blessed with a stunning setting. Perfectly green and perfectly tropical. And its best attribute is that it is really close to the UNESCO World Heritage city of Luang Prabang in serene Laos For those who want a break from temples, French colonial setting, shopping and the Mekong river and wish for a rural experience by cycling or motor-biking through the countryside, then the Kuang Xi waterfall at 30 kms away from Luang Prabang provides that ideal avenue.

The lovely Kuang Si Waterfall near Luang Prabang, Laos
The natural swimming pools at the foot of this waterfall are a great way to laze around and cool off in this tropical part of the world. This rugged terrain offers small treks for those willing to sweat it out and once you have sweat it out, you can again go for a dip in this turquoise pool. For families with kids, there is a bear conservation center close by (it is called the Kuang Xi Bear conservation center) that will offer a knowledgeable session about the sun bears of Laos and also makes for great scenes. In my head, it is the perfect day trip from Luang Prabang. Have you explored this place as yet?
