Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Kuang Si Waterfall - Luang Prabang

One of the "must-see" attraction outside Luang Prabang are the Kuang Si Waterfalls. The Kuang Si Waterfall is a three tier waterfall about 30 kilometers south of Luang Prabang. The falls begin in shallow pools atop a steep hillside which lead to the main fall with a 50 m cascade. The water collects in numerous turquoise blue pools as it flows downstream. In one of the bigger pools there is a rope swing from a tree that numerous people will glide off from, letting go to drop in the pool below.

To the left you'll see a little ladder built on the tree and a rope. This is the rope swing. I jumped off a few times and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Near the entrance of the falls is a closed off area that is for protecting some Asian black bears. If you look carefully you'll see some sleeping in a hammock.
