✯ Cataratas Kuang Si

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Kuang Si Falls, sometimes spelled Kuang Xi or known as Tat Kuang Si Waterfalls, is a three tier waterfall about 29 kilometres (18 mi) south of Luang Prabang in Laos. 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 metres (200 ft)cascade. The falls are accessed via a trail to a 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.The locals charge a nominal admission fee to visit the site, but it is well main maintained with walkways and bridges to guide the visitor. Most of the pools are open to swimming (although at least one is closed as being a sacred site).-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cataratas Kuang Si a veces escrito Kuang Xi, es una cascada de tres niveles alrededor de 29 kilómetros (18 millas) al sur de Luang Prabang en Laos. Estas cascadas son un sitio preferido por los turistas en Luang Prabang. Las caídas comienzan en charcas poco profundas sobre una ladera empinada. Estas la conducen a la caída principal, con una cascada de 50 metros. El agua se acumula en numerosas piscinas de azul turquesa a medida que fluye aguas abajo.Los locales cobran una cuota nominal de admisión para visitar el sitio, pero está bien mantenido, con pasarelas y puentes para orientar al visitante. La mayoría de las piscinas naturales están abiertas para ser usadas (aunque al menos una se cierra por ser un lugar considerado sagrado). Algunos excursionistas son capaces de subir a la cima de las cataratas.
