Rising 150 metres above the centre of town, Mount Phousi cuts a distinctive figure on the Luang Prabang skyline.
The hill is popular as a place to watch the sun rise or set over the Mekong River. From the summit you can enjoy a spectacular 360 degree outlook across the city and its many temples, and out over the surrounding landscape to the mountains in the distance.
Count on spending a couple of hours for the climb and descent, with several stops to see the temples, rest under the shady trees and admire the magical views.

Phou Si, which means “sacred hill” is about 100 meters high. Although it is quite a climb to the top, it is worth the effort.
