The mysterious Plain of Jars is situated about 12 kilometers from Ban Phonsavanh, the capital of the province. There are over 300 giant jars scattered across the misty plateau. The jars vary in size from 1 to 3 meters height and up to 2.7 meters in diameter with the heaviest jar weighting 6 tons .The purpose of the jars, thought to have been carved from solid rock around 3,000 years ago, remains a mystery. The landscape evokes thoughts of the grandeur, as the jars are the last remnants of an advanced Bronze Age civilization now long gone.
