Kuang Si Waterfalls by Bike and Boat

Kuang Si Waterfalls
by Bike and Boat

Biking and sailing: our travel options to the Kuang Si Waterfalls with a slight adventurous streak
are included into this Luang Prabang trip. A leisurely journey with ample time to enjoy
the magnificence of one of the region’s most cherished phenomena.

WHY THIS TOUR?

The majority of Luang Prabang’s attention is focussed on its temples and monasteries, its spirituality and its cool, calm and collected atmosphere which is engrained in the DNA within the town borders. Constructed on the crossroad of the Nam Khan and Mekong River, influences from the French settlers remain visible and tangible in its architecture and food.

When venturing beyond the town borders, nature rules with an iron fist with the Kuang Si Waterfalls topping the Luang Prabang list. Between your resort and these multi-tiered falls lies 30 kilometres of winding roads, perfect for a biking trip. No experience needed as our pedalling trail leader will keep the tempo at a recreational level, enough to admire what passes you by along the way.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Kuang Si Waterfalls by Bike and Boat

08:00 - 16:30

Customers are picked up from their hotel at around 8 am by our team of biking professionals for a joint bicycle tour from downtown Luang Prabang to the Kuang Si Falls. Within no time, you have left downtown and almost follow paved roads towards one of the region’s most soothing and relaxing natural spots.

Located 30 kilometres south of the city, the Kuang Si Falls is a three-tiered waterfall with a total drop of 60 meters from to bottom. Using well-maintained bicycles, the ride brings you through forest regions and small settlements of locals as we meander our way – with little traffic – to this sanctuary of serenity. Upon arrival, you will have the chance to take a dip in one of the turquoise-coloured pools (some are closed as they are considered sacred) or simply rest after a gentle ride in the Laotian countryside. Paths and trails around the falls offer good hiking opportunities for those in need of more activity.

We head back to Luang Prabang by driving to one of the boat landings along the Mekong. Instead of taking our bikes back, we make our way to our overnight address by cruising downstream and getting a different perspective of nature-rich Luang Prabang. The boat ride is short but a very pleasant one. Upon arrival at the main pier, disembark your vessel after thanking the captain for the safe journey and we ensure that you are brought back to your resort.
