Kouang Xi Waterfall

This is the main attraction in Luang Prabang area. With good reasons. I’m agree, I love it.

It’s a long complex of small waterfalls that creates steps, balconies and pools, with fresh blue water. The pools are easily accessible from the side. Amazing to relax. The complex ends with a 25 meters waterfall divided in three big steps in which is possible swim arriving from the not very easy path on the left of the waterfall (facing the waterfall).

The top is flat and the blue river lose it self in the forest.

The blue color of the water comes from the presence of copper in the water. The formations are made by the silt left by the water.

I almost forgot. This is all true in the dry season, in the raining season the scenery changes dramatically. It’s still beautiful and amazing but in another way. Let’s say less relaxing. Have a look at the photos.

Sono nato nel 1978 in provincia di Cremona. Nella vita si cambia, ma un aspetto di me non è mai cambiato: la voglia di scoprire cosa si nasconde dietro la prossima curva, dietro la collina, la linea d' alberi, oltre l' orizzonte. Molte sono le motivazioni che mi hanno spinto ad imboccare questa strada. Ma questa mia caratterisca è sicuramente alla base di tutto. Riflettendoci è la caratteristica che più sento mia.
