Pak Ou caves are located opposite to where Nam Ou river drains into Mekong river. All tourist boats stop here for a visit of lower and upper caves. Behind the caves are village trails ones can walk to the villages in the hills.

Kuang Si waterfalls

After the check in at a hotel in Luang Prabang we headed south for a walk to famous Kuangsi waterfall. Large volume flow of water was clearly evident since the lower level of the fall. July to October are the times when you would see waterfalls of South asia overflowing; with the possibility of river flood, floods in the caves; and roads and bridges unpassible by high water level or land slide in the less developing places.

The trail to the top of the fall was wet and muddy. At the top it was difficult or even dangerous to walk through the river to the other bank, so we turn back and walk down the same route to the bottom.
