Wat Chom Si on top of Phousi Hill is a very prominent landmark in the center of Luang Prabang. And it is 300+ steps up. Now, I really don’t know why subject myself to such torture, specially a day after climbing Kuang Si Waterfall. Over and over I just fall for traps like this. Anyway, the views of the countryside and sunset are nice, not really breathtaking, but still rewarding.
Admission. 25,000 kip ($3). The front entrance is right across the Royal Palace (National Museum), while the back entrance is near the Nam Khan River.
