Kuang Si Waterfalls
Luang Prabang, Laos
Visit local markets and villages before heading out to the glorious Kuang Si Waterfalls, an idyllic spot that's ideal for swimming.
This morning's experience starts at Phousi Market, this is a locals' market so your guide will show and explain the diverse offerings on display. From here it's a short walk to Ock Pop Tock, a contemporary silk weaving center. Here you will be given a guided tour and the silk weaving process will be explained. A short drive out of town takes us to Khmu, Hmong and Lao Loum villages, representing the main ethnic groups of Laos. From here it's just a short drive to the beautiful Kuang Si Waterfall where you can cool off with a refreshing swim in the turquoise pool or walk along the forest trails. Afterwards you may wish to visit the Bear Rescue Center; this is a successful project that works to protect and rehabilitate the rare Asiatic Black Bear. You'll return to Luang Prabang by lunchtime.
