Anstrengender Weg, da durchgehend steil, in den Grund geschaufelte Stufen unterschiedlicher Höhe und herabgefallene Bäume & Felsbrocken zu übersteigen sind. Der erste Abschnitt führt ca 450m zum ersten Aussichtspunkt. Danach wandert man im Schatten der Felswand, was in der Trockenzeit und bei 38Grad in der Sonne sehr angenehm war. Bis auf den ersten Viewpoint gibt es keine Rastplätze. Daher genug Wasser und Snacks mitnehmen !! Der letzte Abschnitt besteht aus Bambusleitern und rohen Felsen. Die Aussicht ist grandios und weitläufig.

One of the most unique places I've ever visited. When you walk around in the "park", there are several warnings for UXO (unexploded ordinance)! So be careful and don't wander off the main path!

Beautiful waterfall. Go early to beat crowds and heat. Wash off in the water on your way back down.

This hike includes about 300 stone steps featuring a beautiful temple at the top with a viewing area to look out over the city. I went to see the sun set over Luang Prabang in November 2018 and I wouldn’t describe it as relaxing due to the large crowds that this site attracts at dusk. However, getting there a bit earlier than the sunset groups gave me the opportunity to walk around the balcony with very few people around and look out over the city. I imagine this hike is quite peaceful at sunrise (when the views would also be absolutely breathtaking). Please keep in mind that if you are planning on entering the temples it is always thoughtful to be respectful of Lao culture and wear appropriate clothing. It was disheartening to see people being noisy and disrespectful while monks and other visitors were there for spiritual/reflective purposes. Overall, a wonderful opportunity for those who want to experience Luang Prabang from an entirely different perspective.

The Kuang Si Falls are among the most beautiful natural phenomena I have ever seem... the luminous shade of the water is absolutely breathtaking due to the mineral content. During the dry season Ban Thapene is swarming with tourists in the afternoon but the early hours are quieter. I was volunteering nearby and would run up each morning to swim and visit the bear sanctuary that is located at the base of the trail. The bears are much more active during that time and you will have more space to yourself to swim and reflect on the beauty. The cost to enter the falls was 20,000 kip (about ~$3) as of December 2018. There are multiple “tiers” of the falls- I stayed on the left side of the bridges and followed the trail that eventually leads to steps with water from the falls running over them (went barefoot for that part!) My friend crossed the main large bridge by the restaurant and took a path that he said was very muddy and much less developed if you’re feeling adventurous. This place is like none other.

Dirt roads for a while, so if you're cycling (as we did) would recommend cycling gloves on the way back. Beautiful scenery on the route, and the destinations (Blue Lagoon and Pha Hon Kham Cave) are stunning! A bit of a steep walk to the cave itself, but worth it

Quick and easy hike to the top of the biggest hill in Luang Prabang; rough increase of 100m and is mostly stone stairs the whole way. 20.000 kip to enter as there is a temple at the bottom and top. It is a beautiful view of the city, especially near sunrise/sunset.
