Tad Tayicseua, a remote tourist attraction 43 kilometres from Paksong, is a stunning place that boasts of seven different waterfalls located close to each other.
Tad Tayicseua is a hidden gem — most tourists would only know about this place once they get to Tayicseua — but it’s one of the places to explore if you’re planning to take the Bolaven Plateau loop. Impressive forests, untouched jungles, challenging cliffs and steep climbs surround the area and you’ll see more of their wild beauty as you hike your way through the falls. Though you can see most of the waterfalls just by parking on top of an elevated spot, the best among the falls is Waterfalls 1 — in here, you can take a cool, relaxing dip in the clean mountain water while looking up at the fall’s ethereal beauty.
