  • If you are ready to climb a fair number of steps, this is a great opportunity to see Luang Prabang from a height as well as the Mekong river.

  • The hike uphill is exhausting, but worth it to reach the top…small temple at the apex with Buddha statues, caves and scenery along the way. Small entrance fee’

  • Beautiful place to visit. The road and the view uphill to the top of the mountain are amazing. It is highly recommended
  • Nothing spectacular. But very good for sunsets or sunrise.You gotta pay 10.000 kip to go up, a lot of stairs. The view is very good tho
  • This place has amazed me. Being so close to mother nature. A perfect place to enjoy a panoramic view of the city. Do not forget to carry your sun glasses as the sun light is quite intense.
  • Best views in town. The hike is easy. Plan to get the sunset
  • Lovely sunset spot! Nice climb, maybe 6 minutes to the top of the stairs. 20,000 Kip entrance fee. Bring water.
