Tad Lo Waterfall

Salavan Province, South Laos.

I caught the eight o’clock bus from Pakse to Salavan at the VIP bus station. But I had to change busses at the southern bus station which is at the markets about eight kilometers from town.

I had to walk a couple kilometers into the village of Tad Lo. Luckily it was overcast and a bit cooler than usual, so it was not too bad. I found a guest house that cost $1.20 a night, had a shower and took off with the camera up the river.

There were lots of bright flowers about. Red seemed a common theme.

This one looks a bit like a waratah, the emblem for New South Wales.

Then I saw the waterfalls. There is a couple of them, you go past one and then get to the next one which is the actual Tad Lo waterfall.

There were heaps of water striders in a pool below the waterfalls
