We visited the three largest Jar sites, but there are hundreds. The mystery of the jars was enhanced by the incredible views -- bright green fields that rolled away forever, and intricately fluffy clouds in the distance. (Most of the sites were built on hilltops.)
The rough bus ride here was worth it. The Jars sites were amazing and virtually deserted but for our 5-person group and our guide.
Trekking through a rice paddy to reach the first site:
Break for lunch - noodle soup with egg and herbs
On the way back, we also saw a rusty old Russian tank, half buried by the earth…
…and a whisky (moonshine) “distillery” run by a friendly old woman with no teeth. We all took shots. It tasted sweet and warm from the sun – not as bad as I expected!
