Went to Kuang Si Falls by songthaew (covered van) one morning at 0900, to beat the crowds. Negotiated a price of US$13.

We actually walked to the falls straight up along the tarmac road and then backtracked along the river bank to the exit.

After a thunderstorm the night before, trying to climb to the top of the falls was very dangerous. I tried a couple of times from both sides of the falls, but kept slipping so I just gave up. Even walking down the bank was very slippy so be careful.

You are able to have a swim in a few designated areas, with small wooden huts available to change in.

There is bear sanctuary at the right hand side of the entrance with 3 Black bears and if you want to walk up to the falls via the river bank, head this way.

There are food and drink stalls if you feel hungry after your exertions.

Admission to falls, 20,000Kip (July 2010).
