Mount Phousi

Located at the heart of Luang Prabang, Mount Phousi is an extremely sacred place for Laotian people. On its summit sits a golden That Chomsi stupa which offers fabulous panorama of Luang Prabang city, its surrounding mountains and the Mekong River. 

Visitors must climb 355 steps to reach its peak (around 2 hour hike). Several temples are scattered on its slopes, interesting sites for some stops en route. The best time to visit it is in early morning or late afternoon for an incredible sunset. Also if you go late in the day, back down, you can wander through the aisles of the nearby ethnic market which takes place every night.
