328 steps and 150 meters above the town resides Mount Phousi, which is one of the most famous attractions in Luang Prabang. I kept on saying the word “be humble” in my mind while slowly making my way up top. I guess that’s my own...More

Awesome sunset viewing from Mt Phousi. Make sure you allow a good half an hour before the sunset time to secure the best spot. When I was there it was inundated with tourists. Jam packed. It ruined the experience. Entrance fee 20,000 kip
