Meet your guide at your Luang Prabang hotel and enjoy the views as you drive into the countryside to explore the Kuang Si waterfalls. Along the way, stop to visit the H'mong village of Ban Na Ouane and learn more about Laos’ ethnic hill tribes as you get a glimpse of everyday life.

Enjoy free time to swim in the clear waters beneath the falls, take photos of the dramatic travertine pools, or hike around. (Note: bring a swimsuit, towel, and a clean set of clothes with you if you want to swim.)

After working up an appetite, head to the Khmu village of Ban Thapene, which lies just below the falls, and tuck into a delicious picnic lunch (included) by the waterfront. Take time to stroll around the village and admire the local tradition of basket weaving, before climbing back on the bus.

You'll visit the craft villages of Ban Xiang Khong, famous for its traditional paper-making, and Ban Xieng Lek, renowned for its skilled weavers. After browsing the villages and shopping for souvenirs, arrive back in Luang Prabang, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
Itinerary

Hmong Village School
In the morning, we will pick you up from your hotel in Luang Prabang at around 8 am and drive around 30 kilometres in western direction. En route, we stop at the local Hmong Village of Ban Na Ouane where we witness the daily life of this ethnic hill tribe of the northern part of Laos. A walk through the Luang Prabang's lush jungle leads to Kuang Si which is considered as Laos' most beautiful waterfall and a must-see visit for those staying in Luang Prabang.

Stop At:  
Kuang Si Falls
The falls begin in shallow pools atop a steep hillside which leads to the main fall with a 50 meter, three-tiered cascade. The water collects in numerous turquoise blue pools as it flows downstream. The many cascades that result are typical of travertine waterfalls with beautiful scenery; an abundance of flora and fauna surround the area. After enjoying the scenery, you are free to take a swim in one of the nearby clear pools. There are also some hiking paths around the waterfalls, bringing each visitor deeper and closer with nature. Below the tiered limestone pools lies the Khmu village Ban Thapene. The Khmu men are especially good basket weavers and can sometimes be watched crafting these, still used in the daily lives of the Laotians. Lunch will be served nearby the waterfall. One can enjoy the scenery around the waterfall for a short time before we head back in the direction of Luang Prabang.
