Prepare to be impressed by Tad Yuang. a towering 40-metre waterfall that spills out of the Laos jungle in spectacular fashion. More specifically.its located on the Bolaven Plateau. which is slowly becoming more accessible to travellers. Local volunteers have worked tirelessty to create safer viewing platforms. and other amenities and stalls are continuing to pop up nearby. A rather steep. slippery path winds its way down to the bottom of the falls.but is worth carefulty manoeuvring so you can cool off in the pool below and bask in the immense power of the surging twin torrents. There’s even a designated picnic area at the top. and quite a few walking tracks that lead deeper nto the surrounding rainforest. Our tip? Get there super early or stick around until dusk. when the crowds have dispersed. and you’re more likely to have the falls all to yourself.
When in Samoa. do as the great Samoan warriors of the past used to do and bathe In the crystal cleer waters of the Togitogiga waterfall. While the name might be difficult to sey getting there is not ,and the waterfall is conveniently situated just a few miles away from 0 Le Pupu-Pue National Park Samoa’s first national park overgrown tropical gardens. offering sweet shady relief from sun, encroach on the deep swimming holes, which ere fed by multiple cascadnig falls.
The best time to visit is during the wet season. from November to April, when the falls are at their fullest and the pools are primed for cannonballs and giant leaps into the blissfully cool waters below. Thanks to a recreation area changing rooms and toilets , Togitogiga has been known to get rather busy, but if you can handle a few extra people splashing nearby, there’s realy no better place to be on a hot Samoan day .
