Create an itinerary including The Plain of Jars
See the mysterious megaliths of The Plain of Jars, scattered with thousands of massive stone containers. Of unknown ancient origin, the jars range from 1 to 3 meters in height (3 to 10 feet). Over 90 clusters of these puzzling objects exist across this part of the country. Since the area was carpet-bombed by the American forces, only a few of the archaeological sites have been cleared from unexploded bombs and can be safely visited. Put The Plain of Jars on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Phonsavan tour planner.

  • Nice
  • Under number 3, but in a very interesting place, on a gentle slope, there are about fifty jugs of stone. In different sizes, positions, and degree of preservation. Picturesque access, from the entrance and a nice restaurant, over the bridge, and a narrow path through the rice fields. The main road through the village is in poor condition, and it is difficult to raid in the rain period. Approaching with my @capriolo bicycle, I came across a road repair action.
