‘Laos - Phongsali - Above the clouds’


With its 8.161 inhabitants (in 2015), Phongsali is the largest town in the most northern province of Laos.
The population density of this province whose name is also Phongsali is the lowest throughout the country:
14 inhabitants per square kilometer (in 2015).

The town is located at an altitude of 1.430 meters on the slopes of Mount Phu Fa (1.625 meters).

All data from Wikipedia.

Here you find two pictures taken on top of Mount Phu Fa where a stupa has been built.
The third photo shows Phongsali and Mount Phu Fa (with the white stupa) seen from the road to Ban Komaen (the village of my previous pictures).

In the middle of winter in Phongsali you can expect freezing temperatures at night.
Not entirely Laos is warm all year round.
The temperatures were not too bad during my visit (on December 21).
For me Phonsavan (Plain of Jars) was the coldest place.
