Pak Ou Caves and Kuang Si Fall Day Tour
Two hours upstream from Luang Prabang, disembark to visit the famous Pak Ou Caves. Locally called Tam Ting, the caves are filled with thousands of gold-lacquered Buddha statues. The statues range in size from a few centimeters tall to the height of a human and are crammed into the cave which is nestled in a limestone cliff. The caves are a destination for local pilgrimages.
After visiting the caves, reboard the boat for a cruise back to Luang Prabang. En route, stop at Ban Xang Hay, a village which specializes in making traditional rice-wine.Lunch at local restaurant.
This afternoon, enjoy a visit to Kuang Si Waterfall, south west of Luang Prabang (32km). Along the way, stops will be made to visit some villages of the various ethnic minorities of the area. Upon reaching the falls, relax and enjoy the scenery, and if the weather is good, you can enjoy a swim in the cool, clear waters.
For the adventurous, it is possible to walk to the top of the falls via a steep track where stunning views await you at the top.
After leisurely time at the waterfalls, transfer back to your hotel in Luang Prabang.

The trip up the Mekong to the caves was amazing as was the stop off on the local village on the way The waterfall was beautiful We had a wonderful guide
Only tour I found that went to both the Pak Ou Caves and the Kuang Si Falls in the same day. Both places are highly recommended. Hour and a half leisurely boat trip to and from the caves, but was very soothing and relaxing. Thoroughly enjoyed our day. Guide was outstanding!!
Ok but at 325 for 4 people it was just far too expensive. We had limited tim.e and did not want to be looking up tour companies when our Fiends joined us to make up a foursome.So, we booked via aviator. We could and should have booked any one of the many tours available locally or booked via our hotel and saved a round half of aviator price. Expensive lesson but. Do not use Viator - it's close to a rip off
Viator is only the middle man, liaising customers and local travel agencies, through the web. Our booking was made on the web 48 hours before departure. With a confirmation, we waited at the agreed time 8am and place written on the voucher. It was only when no local guide turned up after 1.5 hours of the agreed time that we realized how desperate one could be. Booking these kinds of tours on web with absolutely no contact phone number of any local agencies provided on the voucher could make one furious. The only contact was an email address and a hotline that goes to the United States, with, of course, no one answering the calls. We wrote several emails on spot while waiting for a local guide to turn up, complaining about the no-show of the local guide. And of course until now, which is already 10 days after the tour, no respond was received. I surely do not recommend anyone joining the Viator. Local tours in Laos are easily available at less than half the cost charged by Viator. This tour that goes Pak Ou Caves and Kuang Si Fall cost approximately 20 US dollars if you go to any local agency at Luang Prabang. Don't fall into the Viator trap!
This tour was great! Our guide was very professional and spoke English well. He really went the extra mile to make us see the many things along the way and really offered some quality information on the history of Laos and the way of life...
This tour was fbulous and I would totally recommend it. The luang si falls are stunning and shouldn't be missed. The boat ride to the caves in relaxing and the guide was really nice and very knowledgeable. Overall a really nice day out!
Thank you Mr Vong and Mr Toni from Bravo Indochina for turning a potentially disastrous trip into one of our most beautiful ones. Our 3 yr old was unwell and hence we were going to cancel. However, Mr Vong customised the day for us so that we could still enjoy some beautiful sights. While we could not do the caves, we were able to see the Kuang Si falls and enjoy a Mekong river sunset cruise. Kuang Si is a must see though a bit crowded as it was a local holiday. The river cruise was amazing as we felt that we saw Mekong at its prettiest here we caught it in Cambodia and Vietnam too, but trust me, its beautiful and serene in LP. Thank you Mr Vong for taking such good care of us.
