While staying on Don Khone, we took a trip to the Somphamit Waterfall, to admire what the locals call the “Spirit Trap”. They believe that the waterfalls trap the bad spirits of the dead as they pass down river. Local fishermen use these traps to catch fish……which is pretty ballsy considering how insanely fast the water flows.
The waterfalls are truly epic, and it is difficult not to sit there and watch the sheer volume of water pouring over without a little bit of awe at the power of it.
As they say, a picture paints a thousand words, so instead of boring you with my minimal vocabulary, I let these bad boys show you why it’s worth a trip to the Somphamit Waterfalls in Laos.
This post was in no way sponspored by waterfalls…..despite the excessive waterfall action
