Day1   Welcome – Pakse – Vatphou-Opmoung-khietngong (…/L/D)

On arrival, we drive on the National Road No. 13th south to Champassak and to visit the fascinating pre-angkorian ruins of Vatphou temple complex is situated at the base of Phukao mountain which lay on the bank of Mekhong river directly east of mount Lingaparvata(now called Phu Kao) 6Km from the west bank. As suggested by an inscription of a king Devanika Vth century, found in Vat Luang Kau. Two inscriptions discovered as early as the end of the VIth century AD, it was the capital city of king Mahendravarman which text and inscriptions connect with Chenla and Champa. The mountain gained spiritual importance from the linga-shape, who later became the ruler of the Sambor Prei Kuk area. Later on, this City (often identified with Shrestapura) lost its role as political when the founding dynasties extended their rule over the completely Khmer territory. Vatphou was a part of the Khmer empire, centered on Angkor to the southwest. As early as the reign of YashovarmanI in the early 10th century Shrestapura was superseded by a new city in the Angkorian period, in the later period, the original buildings were replaced, re-using some of the stone blocks; the temple now seen was built primarily during the Koh Ker and Baphuon periods of the 11th century. Later period the temple was converted to Theravada Buddhist use. This continued after the area came under control of the Lao, and a festival is held on the site in full moon of each February of yearly, and was designated a World Heritage Site in 2001 by UNESCO.
