Languid Laos - 2007

THE “KOLOSSAL” KUANGSI

Laos is home to an enormous waterfall (the Kuang Si Falls) not too far out from Luang Prabang and we were taken out to a national park to see it in fairly full spate since the rainy season had recently ended. The cataract is quite high and there are three distinct levels for the waters to leap. It is beautiful in its power and its thunderous music as the water crashes down into the plunge pool. Quite a good spot for photographers and “gawkers” like me. The ride through the lovely countryside was a wonderful part of the visit to the falls as well. So green and serene with all the rice paddies and tiny villages punctuating our drive as well as excellent sightings of the stolid water buffalo looking as if they were carved from granite.
