“Good view of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Mount Phousi was a fairly easy walk which anyone could do, but not in themiddle of the day. Lots of thick vegetation and buddha statues along the way with a small temple at the top.

“Great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

It was a hot sunny day starting from 9 am. There were about 300+ steps. By the time we reached the top, we were breathless but the view was spectacular.
Midway, they do sell some water and you can rest also.
Great experience.

“Well worth the stairs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

This is an awesome if somewhat big trek up some almost vertical stairs - though it can be approached from the other side with less effort. Luckily there is a little rest stop on the way up and the views across the town are amazing.

“Great views of LP”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We really enjoyed the 360 degree views of LP which is stunning with the mountain backdrop at sunset. Make sure to get there early for a good spot for sunset because it gets very busy.

“Good for views and sunset, don't forget the footprint !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The climb is not too strenuous (all stepped) but you do have to pay. Not much to do at the top but have a good laugh when going down and seeing the Buddha footprint. I wouldn't have liked to have made his shoes...
