After a long and hot day of trekking in the jungles around Luang Prabang, Laos, our guide took us to the gorgeous Kuang Si Falls. This 3 tier waterfall and its surroundings were so incredibly enchanting that I felt I was in paradise. It was beautiful how the white water cascaded down from the shallow pools high above and gathered in the numerous turquoise blue pools. The natural rocks and trees amid the waterfall also added to its beauty.
As I stepped into one of the pools, I was surprised by the water’s temperature. It was very cold. Despite it being a very hot day, I was only able to swim and play around the pools for a very short time because it was freezing! I have to admit, the short time I did spend in the pools was one of the greatest experiences I had swimming in nature.
These two photographs only show a small portion of the entire Kuang Si Falls. To really appreciate all its beauty, one definitely needs to see the waterfall in person. I would highly recommend a stop at the Kuang Si Falls, if you happen to be traveling in Laos.
