Vat Phou Tours

The southwest corner of Laos and foot of sacred Mount Phou Khao is the remote resting place for Vat Phou (or Wat Phu), a vast Khmer Hindu temple complex and World Heritage Site. Originally constructed between the late 10th century to early 11th century by the Khmer Empire that controlled much of Laos during this era, Vat Phou outdates the more famous Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia.

Vat Phou tours will guide you through these majestic and well-preserved ruins that sprawl across some six miles and even today, remain a place of worship for local Buddhists. The nearest base for Vat Phou is Champasak, a sleepy small town, but as this ancient site flanks the Mekong River’s western banks, you can alternatively arrive by boat.
