New Years Day Hike to Kuang Si Falls - Laos
It was indeed the same color as I had seen in the pictures. Amazingly bright blue and green and seemingly radiating sunlight off of each pool (which is impressive itself because it was an overcast morning).
And every time I turned a corner on the trail up to the main area, there was another pool of water with a waterfall behind it. It seemed to have gone on forever - there were at least 7 'tiers' that I counted before I lost track. Each segment just as beautiful and brilliantly colored as the last.
And it was totally worth hiring my own ride and getting there early as there were maybe 6 other people the whole way to the main area of the falls.
The trail quickly got narrower and narrower, muddier and muddier and steeper and steeper.
