Located at the top of Mount Phousi, this beautiful Stupa comes with the amazing view of the Luang Prabang town. Very worth it to climb the 300++ steps for this amazing view and beautiful stupa.

there are ways of going up mt phou si. one from the royal palace museum and the other from the northern side. it is about 325 steps up. at the top you will find the That Chomsi Stupa. it is golden with a high pillar.

As stupas go this is a pretty nice one and worth a visit if in the area. Is it worth going out of the way or spending lots of time.....depends on your point of view.

This is a small wat at the top of overhyped and overrated Mount Phousi. Nothing much to see really. Do not waste your time coming up here, unless you have nothing much to do.

Lots to see on the way up (or down). Summit isn't spectacular for the Wat (but worth the trip up for the sunset!). On the river side, there are many things to see. On the city side, mostly just stair. If you are in Luang...More

That Chomsi Stupa from a distance appears to be in the middle of a jungle, but is in fact above one of the main streets of Luang Prabang. Entry is 20,000 Kip and you climb just over 300 steps to reach the top. You can...More

A small stupa at the top of Mount Phou Si. A nice place to spend some quiet time in contemplation while enjoying the views from the top of the hill.
