Tat Lo Attractions

Tat Lo attractions revolve around its 3 waterfalls: Tad Suong, Tad Lo, and Tad Hang. With cascading waters surrounded by rocky cliffs and lush jungles, most of the local community is built up around these natural formations.

Tad Hang is most suitable for swimming as the water is not too rough, though steer clear from the falls at 4pm, when waters released from a nearby dam cause the falls to rise rapidly. Head upriver to reach Tad Lo waterfalls – its powerful cascade makes it unsuitable for swimming but makes for beautiful photos.

Tad Suong is about 10 km from Tat Lo village – you’ll be greeted with views of Xe Set River plunging almost 100 metres into a deep, rocky gorge.


Tat Lo Shopping

Tat Lo shopping is limited as there isn’t much to buy as far as souvenirs are concerned. There are family-run shops within in the village that sells necessities and light snacks, but you’re better off getting your supplies at another Laos city before making your way to Tat Lo.
