Pak Ou Caves

 
Pak Ou Caves Pak Ou Caves have a history dating back thousands of years and consider as one of the most respected holy sites in Lao;. Packed with over 4,000 Buddha icons, the caves, a shrine to the river spirit and Lord Buddha, are set in a dramatic limestone cliff at the point where the Mekong joins the Nam Ou River. There are two caves to visit, the lower cave called Tham Ting and the upper cave Tham Theung, both boasting miniature Buddhist figures that are mostly made from wood. Positioned about 50 feet above the river, Tham Ting filters in some light but a torch is required for the absolutely pitch black Tham Theung. The upper cave is home to the majority of the Buddha statues and you will need to find your way in darkness to ...
 

Mount Phusi

 
Mount Phusi Mount Phusi or Phou Si hill is popular as a place to watch the sun rise or set over the Mekong River. From the summit you can enjoy a spectacular 360 degree outlook across the city and its many temples, and out over the surrounding landscape to the mountains in the distance. Count on spending a couple of hours for the climb and descent, with several stops to see the temples, rest under the shady trees and admire the magical views. Rising 150 metres above the centre of town, Mount Phousi cuts a distinctive figure on the Luang Prabang skyline. At the top of Mount Phousi is the golden Wat Chomsi, which was built in 1804. Visitors must climb 355 steps to reach its peak (around 2 hour hike). Several temples are scattered o...
 

Kuang Si Falls

 
Kuang Si Falls Kuang Si or Kuang Xi Waterfall is the biggest in the Luang Prabang area with three tiers leading to a 50-metre drop into spectacular azure pools before flowing downstream. The pools also make great swimming holes and are very popular with both tourists and locals. You can change clothes for swimming at the wooden huts located close to the entrance. The pools also have cascades of up to five metres high with deliciously cold water due to the shade given by the surrounding lush tropical jungle, if you don’t fancy a swim then you can relax in the shade and watch others having fun jumping in and out of the water. Clean changing rooms are available along the main trail that parallels the waterfalls and pools. Toilets are...
 

Luang Prabang

 
Luang Prabang The royal capital of Laos until the 1975 revolution, this World Heritage site remains a charming curiosity of ancient temples and French colonial architecture. Second City When Fa Ngum founded the Lan Xang kingdom in 1353, he named his capital Muang Sawa. Later, when he received a Sri Lankan Buddha image (Phra Bang) from the Khmers, he renamed the capital Luang Phrabang. Vientiane became the new capital in 1545. Now, as Laos second biggest city, Luang Phrabang remains a sleepy town still awaiting modernity. The ethnic mix is Laos, Mien, Hmong and various other Thai tribes. The architecture is assorted, with northern Laos temples and French colonial buildings standing among humbler private dwellings: mountains surr...
 

Muang Ngoi

 
Muang Ngoi Muang Ngoi is a gorgeous, sleepy town, and one of the friendliest in Laos, which is a big call. There is no road access, and the lack of motorbikes and other vehicles is refreshing. Limited electricity means that the locals' lifestyle is aligned with daylight hours, and the town shuts down at 9 or 10, and starts up again very noisily at daybreak. Smaller than Nong Kiaow, Muang Ngoi offers more in the scope of local activities, and a few of the guesthouses offer trekking, walking, boating or caving day trips. Almost all the guesthouses wisely have hammocks on their balconies, and the favourite pastime of most visitors is simply swinging and appreciating the view. Directly in the path of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the...
