After being directed on the right path by an English speaking farmer, I walked the 3 km to the top of Phou Asa, from where one has good views of the wetlands, and one can wonder about the many stone towers surrounding the top. Mysterious!

I was so surprised first second I see this mountain, it's not that higher, but when we getting up there oh wow so nice and beautiful, you can see whole views down there, with widely lake,
on top of the mountain little bit strange I don't know why ?
up there had small lake how the water can stay and where it came from?
I a little bit scared at the moment because I was so excited so I went there alone , 😊😊😊

This place we arrived after a walking tour in the sun visiting coffee, thea plantation and a tribe. This was so nice and cool place to sit, drink and rest. I did not know but it was possible to go in the water. The sight alone was so beautiful and the area peaceful.

We visited during a short trip to Pakse. It was very nice visiting this site and we were able to swim in some of the ponds there.

Only go if you enjoy long drives.

We decided to visit the village of Kiet Ngong after reading about it in our travel guide. We were hoping to see the elephants and learn something about how they live and how they are cared for. It was quite a journey to get to the town from la Folie lodge and reasonably expensive (in Lao terms) so we were a bit disappointed that all that happened after paying our money (almost double the price the current guide book indicated) was that one elephant and her owner emerged from somewhere and took us for a ride up the hill. The owner could not speak English so we did not learn anything and nor were we taken to Phu Asa (there were no ruins only a view) and dismount at the top was not offered. No one around spoke English either including our tuktuk driver so we could not explain that we wanted to explore the town after our ride and see the elephants. Nor did anyone seem particularly interested in our enjoyment or expectations or in trying to explain our choices. As we travelled in the off season the experience might be better at other times of year. We were happy to have done it but disappointed and based on our experience would not recommend it.

The upper levels of the path to the top are a bit hazardous due to hewn wood stairways. If you got to the top at dusk, take a flashlight for the climb back down as it is pitch black

I went up here as part of a day hike organised by the tourist information centre in Kiet Ngong, the hike was alright but nothing special and this mountain certainly wasn't anything worth going out the way for.
