Best Waterfall Quotes

One of the most special waterfalls that I have ever had the pleasure of visiting was the famous Kwang Si Waterfalls in Laos. Popular for its many cascading layers, I remember chancing upon it with very few people that day. The group that I was traveling decided to hike to the very top where we had one empty pool, large enough for us to swim around.

It was honestly, one of the most magical travel experiences! In this section, I will walk you through some of my top picks for the best waterfall quotes out there!

On the still waters of your soul.”
