The Tad Fane Waterfall is in the Dong Hua Sao jungle, one of the National Biodiversity Conservation areas in Champasak Province in Laos. They are stunning though you are not able to swim unlike at other falls within the region unless you are prepared for a half-day hike.
How to get there
The closest town to the Tad Fane Waterfall is Pakse. The trip to see these falls with a drop of over 100 metres takes an hour and is well worth the effort. There is an airport at Pakse with direct flights to many neighbouring countries as well as Vientiane. It means that this region and the Tad Fane Waterfall is easy to include on Indochina tour packages.
Bus services, including one to the Thai border are regular if not especially quick particularly in the monsoon season.
Best time to visit
The most impressive time to be at the Falls is the rainy season, starting in May and lasting until the beginning of November as a rule; it is just a matter of being able to get there. Laos travel packages are available all year round so you have the choice.
Things to see and do
This is a rainforest region where there are the elusive leopard, the extremely rare tiger, elephants and moneys. There are also many species of birds, the most impressive being the hornbills. Laos tour packages will certainly cater for those interested in the fauna of the country.
There is a resort hotel for those deciding to stay overnight with a range of rooms and airport transfers available. Most visitors return back to Pakse where there is plenty of accommodation, primarily guesthouses. If you are thinking about a holiday in Laos you will be perfectly happy with the accommodation on offer.
