“Kuang Si Waterfall is the biggest in the Luang Prabang area with three tiers leading to a 50-metre drop into spectacular azure pools before flowing downstream. The pools also make great swimming holes and are very popular with both tourists and locals”

If it hadn’t been for the rain we wouldn’t had the chance to feel like Indiana Jones ;-).

When life gives you lemons… make lemonade and play with you iPhone camera features 😂
It was still super cool to see it.

So instead of turquoise color waterfalls you’ll get pictures of brown waterfalls and iPhone live pictures.
This one is the new feature “long exposure” from your Live iPhone Photo 😉

On the left, what I was expecting (ie from social media and tourism guide)
On the right, what we experiment because of the major rain the night before. 😂
From talking to people, the day before it was turquoise color pools like the pictures and will be in two days when all the rain fall will be over!!

Kuang/Kouang Si Waterfall is one of the, if not THE, highlight of any visit to Luang Prabang.

I did a lot of research (go early to avoid the crowd, hike to the top to avoid the crowd and have a different perspective, …), looked at so many pictures (oooh and wow at the turquoise colors pools) and then the night before we were scheduled to go the skies opened and pour all the water it could…

Calm waterfalls cascading into turquoise-color pools was not meant to be ;-).

Each country in Asia has its own version of the TukTuk, all more colorful than the next one and all adapted to that specific country. .

We skipped this option to go visit the kuangsi Waterfalls which are only 29 kilometers from Luang Prabang but is a 1 hour ride on a car!!
