That Phousy

Over three hundred steps to the shrine on top of the hill in Luang Prabang

I'd been advised to climb all those steps either in the early morning or late afternoon.  I choose the afternoon and even then the swet just poured off my head!

At the beginning of the walk up, an old temple, the walls covered with murals painted in the 1860s.
Having never been restored, these old murals are in very good shape.

After more than 300 steps, I reached my goal ....... the golden stupa, illuminated by the setting sun.
