  • The stupa Phom was perhaps most view of Luang Prabang: indeed, overlooks the city from the top of Mount Phousi as la Madonnina of Milan Cathedral dominates the city. Day and night the Golden stupa is visible looking at the mountain that stands between the two rivers, and can be climbed from either side for long terraces, one facing the Museum has 328 steps, that it comes down to the Nam Khan river is longer. Atop Mount-where there is also a small temple – you can appreciate the stupa standing out above the trees with its 21 meters high, and you can enjoy a great view of the Nam Khan River. The entrance is not free, but altitude 20,000 kip for the climb.
