Approximately 30 kilometres away from the city, Tat Kuang Si is home to one of the most stunning waterfalls in Southeast Asia as well as the Free the Bears Tat Kuang Si Bear Rescue Centre. Learn about the various bear species and the sanctuary’s rescue efforts. Trek up to the top of the waterfall for some great photo opportunities or dip into one of the many cooling pools as you go downstream.
The forests around KuangSi Waterfall have always attracted a large number of butterflies. Olaf and Ineke from the Netherlands sold everything they had and moved to LuangPrabang to realise their dream of creating a research centre studying and publishing about Laos butterflies, host plants and other conservation projects
