After visiting the town you can finish your trip at Phousi Mt where you will meet sunset scenery and take your most beautiful photos of Luang Prabang city and moutainous area from this point. It's like Doisuthep Mt in Chiang Mai, Phousi Mt is must see in Luang Prabang.

Most impressed with seeing the view of Luang Prabang. Lots of stairs but there is a recent landing width, not too narrow. Didn't make it to the sunset but the view was great.

In spite of the low season after a swetty climb we ended up sharing the peak with a crowd of turists all waiting for the sunset. The views are fabulous if you can get to the fance:-) Try going early in the morning to avoid heat and crowd.

A bit of a trek to the top, 400 or so steps but you just take it slow. Very nice views from the top and there is also a little stall selling drinks and snacks. It also sells two small birds in cages which I guess you let loose after pray. Don't take photos of the birds unless you want to get a nasty look from the stall owner.

It costs 20,000 Kip for a ticket which you get after the first set of steps.
