Valley of the Pitchers in Laos


Valley of the pitchers, an archaeological site in Laos, in the province of Xiengkhouang. In this valley are thousands of large stone pots, scattered at the foot of Annam mountain range separating Laos and Vietnam.

Pot size is one-half to three meters, their weight is 6,000 kg, and age is presumably from 1500 to 2000 years. At the moment, solved the issue of assigning the Valley of Jars World Heritage status by UNESCO. The situation is complicated by the fact that the province Xiengkhouang in 70 years, Tide was subjected to massive bombardment by U.S. Air Force during the so-called Secret War. For this reason, a significant part of the Valley is still inaccessible to tourists.

According to archaeologists, the jars were used 1500-2000 years ago by ancient people who lived in Southeast Asia, as a funerary urns, or water storage.
