The next stop is Ock Pop Tock, meaning East Meets West, where you can learn about the traditional weaving in Laos.  A visit to Luang Prabang would be incomplete without ascending the 329 steps to the top of Phousi Hill for a beautiful sunset view of the city and its glowing reflection on the Mekong River.

The 400 years old legendary statue is said to have many supernatural powers, and is widely worshipped among the faithful local Buddhists. We shall reach Muang La by mid-afternoon, which is famous for its natural hot springs for the night.  No activities are planned for the rest of the day so you can stroll around the village or just relax at the riverside retreat enjoying a massage or sometime in the hot springs.

You follow a mountain trail for around 30 minutes which takes you from the banks of the river to the top of the hills and continue on following a mountain stream and climb to the heart of the rice fields.  Your path overlooks the mountain scenery and local farms and your guide will explain the daily life of the local villagers; how they use the plants, herbs and trees of the forest to feed themselves and in some cases, heal themselves using the medicinal properties of the different flora.

You continue on crossing small bamboo bridges and reach the Yang village of Long Ya. Another 2 kilometres brings you to  the  hidden  monastery  –  Wat  Hoytinphabath,  which  houses  a  35m  long  reclining  Buddha.  Numerous effigies and symbols glorifying Buddha can be found in the central temple which also contains footprints of Buddha embedded in stone.
