Mount Phousi

Mount Phousi, with the gleaming golden temple Wat Chom Si on top, dominates the town centre and it is the perfect place to watch a glorious sunset. You’ll get a stunning panoramic view of Luang Prabang: the pretty little rooftops, the mighty Mekong and the verdant amphitheater of mountains.

The hill can be accessed through a few points on Phousi Road and Sisavangvong Road, and various routes lead up to the summit (328 steps to be exact), with Wat Tham Phu Si shrine half way up the hill. Maison Souvannaphoum Hotel is only a 10-15 minute walk or short bicycle ride to the entrances.
