To get to Tad Xay, get to the bridge crossing over the Nam Leuk. Pass the village of Ban Hatkai and continue seven kilometres through the forest (note: the road will be rough and in rainy season, muddy and slippery). For a more adventurous journey to Tad Xay, take a 45-minute boat trip from Ban Hatkai followed by an hour hike to the waterfall. In theory it can all be arranged on the spot at Ban Hatkai. Costs: boat 80,000 kip or more (depending on number of people and price of petrol), local guide 100,000 kip for one to three people, permit 50,000 kip per person, possibly village fund fee 50,000 kip per person.
