The way up is made of stone stairs so it’s easy to get on top. In offseason it wasn’t crowded at all. On the way down there are some interesting statues, etc.

You will most likely feel the walk up the 300+ steps but just think of the benefit to your thighs. The view is well worth the pain. 360 ' degree view of Luang Prabang and beyond. It is simply stunning. The small temple is of...More

The attraction was overrated..nothing special up there unless a view of luang prabang city (which was not very impressive)..it was also very crowded during evenings so you can’t enjoy it well
