Before then, the town was dependent on electrical generators for electricity.There is a small wat to be found in the hills not far from the village. It is an example of a Buddhist temple from the former Lanna Kingdom. Many of the old temples had been destroyed during wars with the Thai Kingdom 300 years before.HistoryDuring the Laotian Civil War, Pak Beng was the southern terminus of the freshly constructed Route 46 from Yunnan Province, Peoples Republic of China.TourismThe town is the overnight stop for boats running between Luang Prabang and Huay Xai.
