OTHER NATURAL SITES IN HOUAPHANH
 
Hin Tang Archaeological Park
Dating some 2,000 years, these menhirs (standing stones) were first examined in 1931, and burial sites in the area contained some ancient trinkets. Marked by standing rock slabs and stone disks, these relics, predating the Plain of Jars, are located along a 12-km mountain ridge in the province’s south.
   
Nameuang Hot Springs
Set in a serene valley of fields and rice paddies, the Nameuang Hot Springs offer visitors a relaxing stop when travelling to or from Xam Neua. When at the hot springs, consider visiting nearby Houaiyad waterfall as well. These falls crash over sloping rocks to a pond, where the waters enter a small river. A short walk up a mountain ridge ends at Houaiyad Village, known for recycling crashed aircraft and cans to make belts.
   
Vieng Thong Hot Springs
Locals have been bathing, washing clothes and even boiling eggs in this vast hot springs area, among the largest in Laos, for generations. Located in a pastoral setting of trees and rice paddies, the waters are said to have medicinal qualities and can reach temperatures of up to 100.c
