Much to see, but not all at the top

Lots to see on the way up (or down). Summit isn't spectacular for the Wat (but worth the trip up for the sunset!). On the river side, there are many things to see. On the... read more

The views are great and cover both the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers. The temple is small and so to the golden stupa but definitelt worth a visit up the steps some 100 meters up.The stuoa was built in 1804 by the then king and is worth seeing.The cost in 20,000 K

This is a small wat at the top of overhyped and overrated Mount Phousi. Nothing much to see really. Do not waste your time coming up here, unless you have nothing much to do.

Lots to see on the way up (or down). Summit isn't spectacular for the Wat (but worth the trip up for the sunset!). On the river side, there are many things to see. On the city side, mostly just stair. If you are in Luang Prabang, this is a must see attraction.

That Chomsi Stupa from a distance appears to be in the middle of a jungle, but is in fact above one of the main streets of Luang Prabang. Entry is 20,000 Kip and you climb just over 300 steps to reach the top. You can watch the sunset from the top, although we did not do this as it was... More

A small stupa at the top of Mount Phou Si. A nice place to spend some quiet time in contemplation while enjoying the views from the top of the hill.

A good idea is to take your time with a slow walk up to the top. There are good views all around and lots of Bhuda Statues all over the hill especialy on the far side. Well worth a visit though.
