Cultural and Culinary Holiday Laos

Unknown to most travelers, this tour will take you to thousands of stone urns dating back to the Iron Age peppered over hundreds of square kilometers in the mountains surrounding Phonsavan, a lengthy detour from the typical transportation routes. Scattered in seemingly random locations, some reach enormous dimensions and weigh well more than a few metric tons. Human bones, stone lids, and discs have also been found in the area. Such a unique vacation!
