PHONSAVAN, XIENG KHUANG (PLAIN OF JARS)

Xieng Kuang is the gateway to the mysterious Plain Of Jars, where jars of all sizes lie scattered over several sites across a slightly eerie plain. Possibly some sort of necropolis, or just simple rice wine containers, nobody really knows the origin or purpose of these stone jars, which are several thousand years old and weigh up to 3 tons each. Between the three sites open to visitors Hmong, Tai Dam and Khmu villages can be found and gentle hills and fragrant pine trees surround the new provincial capital of Xieng Khouang, Phonesavanh.
