Stupa

Great views

Photo of Stupa, , Luang Nam Tha

What we say: 3 stars

From many parts of town it's possible to see the gleaming gold stupa on top of the hill to the northwest.

The stupa itself is unremarkable and similar to many you will see throughout Laos, but there are a few gold buddhas around the back which make for a good photo opportunity.

You can enter inside the stupa if you wish to pray and sometimes you will hear haunting chanting emanating from within. The best part of the stupa, as with many in Laos, is the view that you get of the town below. It's especially pretty as the sun sets and the sky turns a hundred shades of pink and red.

To get to the stupa, simply walk up the main road and take a left down the side road when the stupa appears directly to the left.
