Plain of Jars

August 14, 2008 – 6:42 pm

If you are planning a visit to Laos and to see the extraordinary megalith jars of the Xieng Khouang plain… known as the Plain of Jars… consider staying an extra day or two. Now the largest of all known jar sites, the Ban Pa Keo Site with over 400 jars and an ancient quarry, is open to visitors. This remote area been visited by only a few people so far, mainly because it can only be reached after a five hour guided forest trek high in the mountains east of Phonsavanh Town. The two day journey requires an overnight stay in a Hmong village and includes a visit to the Thad Kha Waterfall – nice little adventure!
