Trekking to Luang Prabang’s Tranquil Kuang Si Falls

May 14, 2018 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , ,

Spend a peaceful day trekking in the forests around the ancient royal city of Luang Prabang and enjoy a Lao-style picnic lunch prepared on the banks of a river, leading to Luang Prabang’s idyllic Kuang Si Falls.

 

In the morning we leave the UNESCO World Heritage town of Luang Prabang behind and travel to the famous Kuang Si Falls. An easy trek through the forest brings us to a series of shallow pools below the source of the falls, where our guides will pick some fresh wild herbs and do their best to catch some fish.

We then choose a picturesque spot on the little river below the falls to cook our lunch. Just in case we don’t catch any fish, our guides have some fresh fish, pork and vegetables already stashed away, which they bought that morning at the local market. They then begin to barbecue the fish and meat on an open fire, as well as prepare a delicious jungle-style soup cooked in a thick bamboo stem.

Your clients can be involved in helping the local guides – from the fishing to cooking – or if they prefer, just sit back, relax and watch the food preparation, while enjoying the spectacular countryside. If your clients choose to help the local guides, they will be only too happy to impart their fishing knowledge and ways to traditionally prepare Laotian food using natural cooking utensils sourced in the forest.

 

After a delicious lunch, we trek down the hill beside the three-tiered falls to one of the spectacular turquoise-colored pools, where we stop to enjoy a refreshing dip. We spend time relaxing by the pool in a setting that conjures up the quintessence of tropical beauty. At your client’s convenience, we then return to Luang Prabang.

It’s very easy to spend a couple of hours enjoying the falls and clients can also visit the adjacent Tat Kuang Si Bear Rescue Centre and observe the activities of its rescued sun bears and moon bears.
