WATERFALLS IN ATTAPEU
 

TAD HUA KHON WATERFALL
After about 17,5 kilometers along Route 11, a long bridge crosses the Se Nam Noi and you enter Attapeu Province. Just over of the bridge, at Km 18, a track leads east to Tad Hua Khon. The name translates as “waterfall of the heads”, owing to a WWII episode in which Japanese soldiers decapitated a number of Lao soldiers and tossed their heads into the falls. The falls are about 100 meters wide and 7 meters deep. This is a busy place on holidays and weekends.

An easy walk to a nearby waterfall flowing off the Bolaven Plateau. Access is through Ban Lanyao, an ethnic Oy community.
