Luang Prabang can be referred to as one of the cities situated in north-central part of Laos, on Mekong River, at a distance of around 425 Km towards the northern side of Vientiane.

Moreover, it’s capital of ‘Louangphrabang province’. Previously, this city was serving as capital of a ‘kingdom’ having identical name. Till takeover by communists in the year 1975, it had been royal capital as well as seat of Kingdom of Laos’s Government.

Luang Prabang holds the pride of being notable as one among ‘UNESCO World Heritage Sites’. ‘Luang Prabang International Airport’ serves this place.

The climate is greatly influenced by monsoon. Hence, winter would prove to be the best season to visit Luang Prabang.

The population is around 103000.

The most significant transport link is ‘Mekong River’. Those travelling from ‘Chiang Khong’ can go on to hire a ‘barge’ for crossing the river.

Overall Guide : Pak Ou Caves Pak Ou Caves can be reached by ‘ferry’ from ‘Luang Prabang’. As an alternative, visitors can go by soonthaew as well. However, in that case, they would reach the river’s opposite bank, where boats would be... more waiting for taking them to another site. Climbing is divided in to two levels. The first level can be clearly seen from river. To reach the higher level, some stairs need to be climbed. It’s advisable to carry a flashlight along with. Both of these caves have loads of bigger and smaller images of Buddha that have mostly been donated by localites. Kuang Si Falls The gorgeous multi-layered ‘Kuang Si Falls’ should not be missed out. They are known for their serenity and beauty. Turquoise-green water goes on to tumble over a chain consisting of steps of limestone and gets collected in gorgeous pools which have been surrounded by posh greenery. Walkways would take one to base as well as summit, around 200 feet upwards. Visitors need to go southwards for getting a glimpse of these falls.
