The Tayicseua waterfalls in Laos are a beautiful place to visit for people who are travelling around Thailand and South East Asia.
Scenery at the Tayicseua waterfalls is lush, green and refreshing. There are also some breath-taking rainbows caused by the spray from the falls reflecting through the sunlight.
These beautiful pictures and video taken by Choochat Banlue show why it’s such a stunning place. And the best part is that it’s virtually undiscovered, very quiet and untouched by tourists.
Choochat Banlue, 50, spotted the colourful double rainbow while he was walking through a valley in Pakxong, Laos.
He followed it through the lush green valley and found the source – a stunning 100ft high waterfall.
But unlike popular mythology, there was no pot gold or leprechauns.
Choochat’s stunning pictures and video capture the water cascading over the rocks into stream – as spray causes a beautiful rainbow.
Choochat, an environmental health officer, said: ”I went out walking from my camping site and noticed a rainbow in the distance.
”I walked towards it and came upon the open ground with an amazing waterfall. I could see where the rainbow started.
”It was amazing, so wonderful to see. It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen in the outdoors.”
Travelling to the Tayicseua waterfalls
The Tayicseua waterfalls in the Pakxong province in Laos are quite easy to reach from Bangkok. Take a train the whole way or fly to the Udon Thani airport then cross the border by mini van.
Flying direct to Vientiane is much more expensive because of Laos’s underdeveloped aviation system.
It’s also great fun to take a detour and stop off a few nights in Chiang Rai or Chiang Mai.
Visiting this place is highly recommended. There are no big hotels, or resorts as it is inside a natural park. However, there are lots of camp sites – great for an outdoor escape from the smoke of Bangkok.
