Great experience, bucket list, wear light airy clothes and good footwear if height is a problem, you can tell Shane and take a short trip, still well worth the visit

It is not something really exiting, but if you are near make a stop, look and walk around. Enjoy the Mekong (see Laos over the river), make some pictures, just be in peace with the surrounding.

We were attracted by the Navel of Mekong, I could not really spot the navel but the rock formation were quite unexpected. All this is within lush temple ground. Good place to take a rest from the drive from Nongkhai and Bueng Kan

This wat is grand with large strange rock formations. It is so close to Laos that you feel you are in Laos. Walk through the rock formations, walk into town and find great food, relax and meditate on the Mekong river waters.
