There are several waterfalls near Luang Prabang, and after reading up on them it seemed that Kuang Si falls was the best one to visit during the dry season, when some waterfalls all but disappear. Even after doing our research, nothing prepared us for how amazing this series of cascades and pools would be. I’m pretty sure the pictures don’t do it justice, but they come closer than words can.
Minerals in the water made some of the more shallow pools an iridescent light turquoise-y blue-green color. As a side bonus, the minerals made a fantastic natural cleanser for our travel weary (and dirty) feet.
There was a line of folks to jump off of a rope tied into a tree about 15-20 feet above the water, while what seemed like hundreds of people watched. Too much of an audience for me, but John took a jump.
