Provincial authorities in Salavanh province plan to develop Hang and Loh waterfalls, two local waterfalls in Salavanh district, to attract domestic and international visitors.

KPL reports that Mr. Somchai Ounchit, Deputy Governor of Salavanh Province, and authorities from the Provincial Information, Tourism, and Culture Division visited the sites last week to observe and collect information.

According to the Government Office Website, the Tad Loh waterfall is about 31 kilometers away from the city and the waterfall originates from the Xe Set River, which begins in the province of Sekong; it is around 10 meters tall and was established in 1986.

The local word Loh means “penis,” according to the folklore of ethnic minority groups in the area.

Salavanh province plans to improve the local infrastructure as well as upgrade resorts and hotels that were neglected during the Covid-19 pandemic in order to better accommodate tourists.

Tad Yuang Waterfall Travel Development Company, a tourism developer, has been tasked with upgrading tourist attractions in a natural way to maintain the national identity of the sites.

Visitors will be able to hike, camp, and engage in adventurous activities at the waterfalls and surrounding areas once the sites are improved.
