Tad Fane is Laos's most impressive waterfall, pounding down through magnificent jungle foliage for almost 400 feet. It's set on the border of the Dong Hua Sao National Park and up in the cool air of the Bolaven Plateau, Laos's premiere coffee growing region. There's good hiking here, and the cool temperatures are a relief from the heat and humidity down on the Mekong. The area is accessible as a day trip from Pakse, though there is a somewhat run-down and overpriced resort at the base of the falls should you care to stay.
