  • A challenging trail with a fantastic panoramic view at the peak. The trail is well marked all the way to the top. We are a family of 5, ages between 42 to 7, and it took us 1:15 hours to climb 700 meters to the top. The climb is quite steep but not too slippery. Highly recommended!
  • Lovely hike, tough to get to the highest point tho. It gets steep and bit slippery. It took us 1h 15min to the silver view point and another 45min to the top one. Very enjoyable views. It worth the effort :)
  • Oh my goodness....what a beautiful view it is .... Last 50m to the top is so hard to climb up,so I don’t recommend kids and elderly people to climb this mountain. You should put in a good shoes. 1 hour is needed to get the top. Very sweaty.start to climb before 9am.
  • Totally worth it! Make sure to get past the first stop, it's not so hard and you've already done the biggest part. Have a rest and walk up the view is stunning and you can sit there in the cool breeze and just relax. Make sure to take water with you from the start! At least one big bottle and enjoy the scenery.
  • First main top :500meters 40min to go for a very healthy person and 30min go down. Second main top: 900 meters +40min again to go from the first top and 30min perhaps to go back to the first top. You have to know that there were many viewpoints and wonderful landscape on this area trek. You will need maybe 4 hours or more to discover all, take photos, beware where you walk, take your time and enjoy that peaceful place. (It depends of your physical condition... if you need lot of water or not etc...)Its affordable but not easy at all if you dont often walk in mountains !Sometime quite hard to climb for some people who are weak or pain legs/back. Remember that the most difficult is to go down... not to climb. The path made by lao villagers who have to take care every time the bamboo stick.. the stairs... the rocks etc.. very brave ! You can buy water only at the first viewpoint (the one on the left when arrived at spot) for 10 or 15 000kip (every morning 2 brave lao guys (Pako and Vnj) climb this top with around 50kg of water/food etc.. dont forget that.) Probably was one of my best expérience on this area. Try to go early in morning... at sunset there are too many peoples.. can not enjoy the silence... but beautiful view of the sun set.
