Tha Falang

Tha Falang, meaning “Foreigner’s landing”, is a large natural rocky swimming pool on the river close to limestone karsts, 1km east of Xieng Liab Cave and then 2km north off Route 12. This peaceful spot with shady trees has been a year-round place to swim and relax beside the water since colonial times, 80 years ago. The track can be flooded and inaccessible during the rainy season.
