Transportation

For nature lovers and those who like the off beaten track hiking, this is designed for you. The trip is only available for few months in dry season when it is passable through the unpaved, dusty and bumpy road. You should expect basic accommodation, uncomfortable bed and cold water. But the reward worthwhile when you find yourself the only foreigners there and the beautiful jungles, river and valleys.

  1. Day 1: Mandalay – Monywa – Po Win Daung

    Leave Mandalay for a 3 hour drive to Monywa, a typical Burmese town on the banks of the Chindwin River. On the way, visit Thanboddhay Pagoda, where more than 500,000 Buddha images cover every wall and archway of this huge Buddhist temple. Also visit Bodihtataung Pagoda and the largest reclining Buddha image in Myanmar, 100m long and 27m high.
    Cross the Chindwin River and proceed to Po Win Daung. This extraordinary complex consists of 947 sandstone caves dug out of the hills and contains what is considered by archaeologists to be the richest collection of mural paintings and Buddhist statues in South-East Asia. Recently opened to foreigners, Po Win Daung with its unique, precious frescoes, some dating from the early 17th century, is a must to see for anyone with an interest in Buddhist Arts. A few hundred metres from the caves is Shwe Ba Daung, another very interesting site where monasteries and temples are carved out of narrow cliffs.

  2. Day 2: Monywa – Alaungdaw Kathapa National Park

    Leave Monywa early for 5 hour drive to Aluangdaw Kathapa National Park, the largest park in Myanmar. The drive is a bit bumpy and dusty on the unpaved roads and only passable in dry season (Nov to Mar).
    The National Park is not very well known for travelers but for Burmese, it is more of a religious site which draws at least 30,000 pilgrims a year.
    Upon arrival, have lunch and short refresh before waking the path to shrine of Alaungdaw Kathapa. Option with elephant ride crossing the forest and river.
    Alaungdaw Kathapa was an enlightened monk of Gautama Buddha. Legends said that when the monk passed away, his body could not be burnt until a new Arimaytaya Buddha come to this world. His body was kept in a cave with a stone door covering the entrance. It is still there with gold leaves gilded by devotees.
