All Is Not So Picture Perfect at the Kuang Si Waterfalls . . .

The Kuang Si Waterfalls are only located about 30 kilometres from Luang Prabang.

The falls are a photographer’s dream.

As dreamy as the setting was, I was horrified to discover that another visitor to the falls decided to poop on the floor in one of the change rooms while I was waiting outside. I ran out horrified and jabbered frantically to others. Why?!? I mean, there were washrooms. And even if it was an absolute emergency with no time to waste waiting in line for the washroom, the forest might have been a more courteous option?

So, my day at the falls was not as serene and tranquil as it started. I know I am a tourist too, and it’s okay if others are present, but I know I have a sense of space and display common courtesy to others as well as the places I visit. It’s unfortunate that many others don’t.

The best part of the visit was jumping from the top of the waterfalls into the turquoise pools below. The chilly water felt invigorating.
