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.

We really enjoyed this place. It was generally easy to access and it is quite amazing. We spent quite some time wandering around. Highly recommended. more »
A beautiful walk through rice paddy fields brings you to the plain of jars site 3. A wide range of jars under a canopy of trees - many are fully intact. Very picturesque
This site was the best one of the three. It was nicely shaded and had lots of jars. The walk there was super cool. You walk through a rice paddy field and over a bamboo bridge. There was also no one else there which was a nice break.
