A definite highlight of my trip was getting to see so many waterfalls. It wasn’t the rainy season so they often weren’t running in full glory, but they provided some of my most blissfully peaceful memories.
This is the waterfall in Pai:
This was near Chiang Mai:
While I didn’t really enjoy Laos, they did have the most spectacular waterfall – or rather, a series of waterfalls. Kuang Si Falls are famous, and for good reason. I’ve never seen more beautiful water in my life. And if you were still enough, fish would come and nibble on your feet!
There were at least seven different leveled sections, and the top of the waterfall was up a mini mountain. Of course we had to trek to the top!
In Cambodia, there is supposed to be a magnificent waterfall which is part of the Angkor Wat tours. As we were already taking a tuk-tuk out to the Lady Temple, we decided to stop at the waterfall as well. The hike up was nice, but when I got to the fall…
However, there was an even better surprise waiting for me…
So while I didn’t get a waterfall, I got amazing butterfly interactions. I meditated while waiting for Mania to make the hike up the trail, and there was one butterfly that kept coming and resting on me 🙂
Even just reminiscing about my times at these waterfalls makes my heart feel peaceful.
