Plain of Jars, Phonsavan
(4.2/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
See the mysterious megaliths of Plain of Jars, scattered with thousands of massive stone containers. Of unknown ancient origin, the jars range from 1 to 3 meters in height (3 to 10 feet). Over 90 clusters of these puzzling objects exist across this part of the country. Since the area was carpet-bombed by the American forces, only a few of the archaeological sites have been cleared from unexploded bombs and can be safely visited. See Plain of Jars and all Phonsavan has to offer by arranging your trip with our Phonsavan trip itinerary planner.

  • Very interesting for those who love the mysteries of the origins of the manufacture of the jares. There is a small electric car that transports you to the start of the tour.
