Souvanna Khomkham (The Ancient City)
Located about one hour upriver of Houay Xay is the remarkable Souvannahkhomkham archeological site. A network of temples, stupas and Buddha statues, it was first established during the 5th century and has been re-built many times. The current ruins date back to the Lane Xang Kindgom from the 14th to 16th century. The area is actually comprised of 40 sites spanning 10,000 hectares. Highlights include a 7 metre high Buddha statue, one of the biggest in Laos, which was long ago raided for treasures concealed inside. Souvannahkhomkham is accessible only by 4WD and difficult to find without the assistance of an experienced guide.
