Luang Prabang:.

is surely a jewel in Indochina, and a well known UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. Once the capital of former kings and an important post along river trade lines it became a site of interest for guest from all over the world. The ancient royal city is surrounded by misty mountains at the junction of the Mekong and the small Khan river.

The center of town is located on a peninsula on an altitude of 300 meter above see level. Here we find ancient buildings, the royal palace, monasteries and temples. In the middle of the small city is Mount Phousi with stunning views of the surrounding temples and hills.

Luang Prabang is a provincial city where time still seems to stand still. As part of the UNESCO reconstruction plan, new buildings have been limited and old houses and streets receive reconstruction to keep Luang Prabang magical place...

»Kuang Si Waterfall

Following the road down south a magnificent waterfall offers a day of discovery and perfect place to hang out in the sun. The waterfall is about 30 km away from town and offers small food stalls as well as the protection project for small bears. An Asian tiger is hold there within his huge open air cage. An amazing sight. Tuk-Tuks as well as normal cars offer services to and from the waterfalls as it is the most famous attraction out of town. Biking tours and trekking arrangements can be combined with the waterfall visit as well as multi day tours with trekking and home stays

Tad Sae Waterfall

Crystal clear waters cascade over multilevel limestone formations, forming pools surrounded by tropical trees and plants. An ideal place for swimming and relaxing and also a great place to get away from the crowd. The nearby river and the lush green surrounding is just another beautiful place around town that cannot be reached by road. You might use a boat from Ban En or book one of the day trips that might include Trekking and Elephant rides. Our Lao Spirit Resort is just 15 min. away from the waterfalls.

Wat Pa Phon Phao

A forest temple famous for the teachings of Ajahn Saisamut. When he died in 1992, his funeral was the largest that Laos had seen in decades.

It’s Santi Chedi (Peace Pagoda) was built in 1988. This large yellow stupa contains three inside levels plus an outside terrace   with a view of the surrounding plains. The inside walls are painted with many Buddhist stories and moral admonitions. You can easily reach this temple with a bike or tuk-tuk. It is on the way to the Luang Phabang Airport .

Ban Panom Weaving Village

This village, populated by Thai Lue (a tribe with its origins in Southern China ), is well known for cotton and silk hand-weaving. Most of the women come into town for the popular evening market in town, but at daytime you can see them waeving with silk and cotton. Beautiful scarves and newer patterns can be seen in Ban Panom.

Henry Mouhot Gravesite

This is the tomb of the French explorer who showed the famous Angkor Wat to the world. Henry Mouhot perished of malaria in 1861, and the French erected a tomb over his grave six years later. The last entry in his journal was ‘Have pity on me, oh my God’. Neglected for decades, his engraved tomb was found by foreign aid staff in 1990. Today it is a nice half day trip along the riverbank of the Nam Khan and mountain bike tours as well as kayakers pass by for a short stop while exploring Luang Prabang nature. Tiger Trail also combines this site with some other adventure package tours around Luang Prabang

Whisky Village near Luang Prabang

Ban Xang Hai means jar-maker village. At one time that was the industry here. Now the jars are brought in, and the small community fills them with the white whisky (Lao Lao) made in the village. Archeologists have excavated pots beneath the village that could be 2000 or more years old. If you want to try some of the finest and strongest Lao Lao shots you should go there not to early in the morning.

Pak Ou Caves north of Luang Prabang

Travel by boat about 25 km upstream from Luang Prabang on the Mekong River to the famous Pak Ou caves, in a limestone cliff at the mouth of the Nam Ou River. Already the boat ride on the mekong is an experience and the landscape around the cave is unique as well. These two caves are crammed with a huge number of Buddha images of all styles and sizes. Both caves are accessed by stairs. The lower cave, known as Tham Ting, is naturally lit. The upper cave, Tham Phum, is deeper, - bring a torch or rent one there.

Best view from Luang Prabang

Mount Phousi and Wat That Chom Sii
situated 150m and 300 steps up above the peninsula with spectacular views of the city and surrounding countryside. Even the climb might be tiring, the view is certainly worth the sweat. Looking out into the country side you can see great mountains, the Mekong river and the great location of the former kings residence. You can also see the old Royal Palace, now the Museum, the old houses and surrounding villages. The temple has a gold spired stupa that can be seen from most parts of the city.
It is surely the most favorite sunset spot but also worth seeing in the early morning - with less people
