The forests near Kuang Si Waterfall have attracted butterflies. The Kuang Si Butterfly Park offers visitors the opportunity of appreciating them up close while you’re at the falls or at the bear sanctuary. Following the path from the entrance, through well-designed gardens, one comes across the pretty streams and eventually reaches the netted garden with beautiful and interesting butterflies.
Several feeder stations are set up where fluttery insects allow a close-up and keep flocking. A fun “fish spa” has been set up to let the fishes nip on the skin. It’s worth a visit if one has been looking for something to do with the children and it also helps to escape the maddening crowds. It takes about 300 meters before entering Kuang Si Waterfalls, nearly 29km from the Luang Prabang. This butterfly park opens daily from 10:00 to 17:00.
