Tad Champee

A worthwhile detour

What we say: 3.5 stars

The turnoff for this waterfall is located about two kilometres further on from the Uttayan Bajiang turn off on the road to Tad Lo.

It's then a 10 kilometre journey down a flat dirt road. At the motorbike parking area you'll be asked to pay 5,000 kip. The waterfall is mediocre to look at and simply tumbles over a few rocks and then continues to be a river again a few metres below.

However, Tad Champee is a great place for swimming either in the river at the top or in one of the pools under the main waterfall.

The drive out here passes through a couple of villages with bubbly kids all shouting and waving as you zoom by. It's a worthwhile detour.
