We were there to watch the sunset, of course a big cloud moved in just before.
When in doubt about a photo, turn it into a black & white ;-).

On our way down, on a different path, we came accross those Buddha statues.

The golden colored Buddha images in several mudras; among them are a Buddha holding an alms bowl, a Buddha image in the calling for rain mudra, a Buddha in the meditation mudra sheltered by the hood of the multi headed serpent Mucalinda, a reclining Buddha and a sitting Buddha surrounded by followers.

Overlooking Luang Prabang and Mekong river from Phousy Hill .

Phousi Hill is located on the peninsula between the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers.
Phou Si, which means “sacred hill” is about 100 meters high. From the top you will have great 360 degree views of Luang Prabang, the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers and the forested mountains.

There are 33 gilded wats in Luang Prabang.
That’s one of them. This former Royal capital still remains the main centre for Buddhist learning in Laos.

Luang Prabang is a UNESCO World Heritage Site so let’s go explore!

It was listed in 1995 for unique and “remarkably” well preserved architectural, religious and cultural heritage, a blend of the rural and urban developments over several centuries, including the French colonial influences during the 19th and 20th centuries.
