FROM LUANG PRABANG TO VIENTIANE PASSING BY THE PLAIN OF JARS

The most usual road from Luang Prabang to Vientiane passes by Van Vieng. It can be done in only one day without halts or visits. Nevertheless, by taking the Eastern road towards the province of Xieng Khouang and the city of Phonsavan, travelers undertake a unique journey to a unique place in Southern Asia: the ‘Plain of Jars’… This mythical site is a huge plain featuring different series of stone jars, some weight tons, and date back thousands of years.                               

 

These jars are a pure mystery. Nobody knows what their use was nor how they arrived there. This area is also known because of Vietnam War. The so called Ho Chi Minh trail passed in this region and was heavily bombed by Americans. Many traces of bombings and tons of debris from that period are still visible nowadays. This part of Laos is not really touristic and is not easily reachable. However, it is a very interesting region worth a visit.

 

The journey continues to Van Vieng and its superb karst formations, reminding the Ninh Binh area close to Halong Bay in Vietnam.

 

 

It is a breathtaking place, which lends itself to hiking, kayaking or to explore caves. This is the last step of natural beauty, before arriving in Vientiane.
