Plain of Jars in Xieng Khoang
Located in the Xiangkhoang Plateau, the famous UNESCO-listed site – Plain of Jars was made up of thousands of stone jars scattered over hundreds of hilly square kilometers. These tubular-shaped megalithic jars are mostly arranged in clusters with more than 90 sites, each with one to 400 stone jars. The Plain of Jars is believed dating back to the Iron Age, however its origin and purpose are still unknown. Tourists usually visit popular spots at Site 1, 2 and 3 as they are considered safe from unexploded ordnance of the wars in Laos, but make sure you follow the designated routes to be safe. When visiting this place, you will also hear the Laotian legends about the origin of the jars as well as enjoy the peaceful farmlands and villages' views from the hilltops.
