Day 2.1 in Myanmar – From Yangon to Heho with stopover in Mandalay International Airport

(13.11.2016) Day 2:/ Yangon>> Heho- Pindaya – Kalaw

After Breakfast at Taw Win Hotel, Move to Yangon Domestic Airport to catch flight to Heho. Upon arrival in Heho, you will proceed by road directly to Pindaya (59 km – 2 hour), a quiet town on the banks of the serene Botoloke Lake. Home to the local Danu people, Pindaya can only be reached by small and windy roads which snake their way through mountain ranges from Mandalay, Inle Lake, or Bagan. Visit the renowned Pindaya Caves, a unique site housing thousands of Buddha images, the caves are estimated to have been formed more than 200 million years ago. The opening of the cave involves a walk past the Shwe U Min Pagodas – giant white stupas which climb out of the ground. Continue on a narrow, winding and historic road (50km – 1 ½ hour) through the Shan Hills to Kalaw, a unique settlement that is situated on the perimeter of the Shan Plateau, which serves as a bazaar for many ethnic groups from the surrounding regions. Overnight in Amara Mountain Resort.

Lunch and Dinner by Own Account.
