The Kuang Si Falls sometimes spelled Kuang Xi or known as Tat Kuang Si Waterfalls, is a three-tier waterfall about 29 kilometers south of Luang Prabang. These waterfalls are a favourite side trip for tourists in Luang Prabang. The falls begin in shallow pools atop a steep hillside. These lead to the main fall with a 60 meters (200 ft)cascade. The falls are accessed via a trail to the left of the falls. The water collects in numerous turquoise blue pools as it flows downstream. The many cascades that result are typical of travertine waterfalls.
