Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 85 reviews on the web
Perched high on Salao Hill, the impressive Phu Salao, Golden Buddha surveys the panoramic landscape of the region. Part of Phu Salao Buddhist temple complex, the summit can be reached by ascending a multitude of steep steps (note that these are poorly maintained) for the more athletic travelers, or by a road that winds around the hill to the site. Look out for other small golden Buddha statues, neatly arranged nearby. Consider heading up to watch the sunset over Pakse from this spot, and be sure to bring your camera along. Put Phu Salao, Golden Buddha and other Pakse attractions into our Pakse family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
