Tad Fane

Stunning twin waterfalls

What we say: 4.5 stars

The falls are located in the jungle of Dong Hua Sao, which is a National Biodiversity Conservation area. Overlooking the falls is a single resort, appropriately called the Tad Fane Resort.

The falls are quite striking, but unlike others in the area, swimming opportunities aren't available unless you take a half-day hike under the supervision of a guide -- both the top and the bottom of the falls are a long haul from the resort through the jungle.

For the casual visitor, pretty much all you can do is look at them. Half-day treks to the top of the falls can be booked here for US$5 per person (with two or more people), full-day treks including a visit to a local village and a coffee plantation cost US$10. These waterfalls are the more spectacular of the lot in this area. A restaurant serves up some decent meals from an English-language menu.

How to get there: Getting here is problematic due to erratic public transport connections. It is possible however to catch a Pak Song-bound tuk tuk or Attapeu-bound bus which passes by the turn off which is then a further walk to the top of the falls. A return chartered tuk tuk excursion out here should cost about 200,000 kip.
