A good view of Luang Prabang from the top however the temple itself isn't really very interesting or pretty. Good opportunity for some snaps though. Admission price is 20,000kip each

The highest point in Luang Prabang. Although it is a walk up of about 325 stairs it is not that difficult. A climb through a nice forest with a temple and a lovely view of Luang Prabang and the surrounding area. If you are going there for the sunset get there a little early if you want a place to sit as it can get crowded.

You have not been in Luang Prabang, if you didn't go up. Perfect views and worth-seeing temples. Best to do early morning or at sunset.

Our guide and I went up the mountain taking the steps to the top, to enjoy the beautiful view, and then, went down on the other side, so I saw all the buddahs which were built along the path.

We arrived 45 minutes before sunset to take some nice photos of the view over Luang Prabang and the Mekong. It cost 20,000kip however if you go just after 6pm the ladies that sell the tickets leave.
It was too cloudy to see the sunset but still a beautiful view.
Recommend.
The temple is not impressive, just well located. Prepare for many steps to get to the top.
