Kuang Si, Luang Prabang, Laos

Kuang Si is the most photographed waterfall in Laos. This picturesque fall features countless cascading pools of turquoise water trickling down from the main fall measuring a staggering 200 feet (60 meters) tall. You can walk up to the peak of the waterfalls by the trail on the left side, past more tumbling cascades to the specular main drop and then see impressive views of the lush forests around. As additional bonus, two nearby excellent attractions are the Bear Rescue Center which is a sanctuary to a dozen of rescued sun and Asiatic black bears and Kuang Si Falls Butterfly Park. The forests around Kuang Si are famed for their myriads of colorful butterflies and the park is home to thousands of Lepidoptera.
