We also offer small group daily tours or 2 nights 3 week breaks, which are organized by many local travel agencies. Cosmetics are usually priced under $100 for 2 nights including accomodation. You can come alone if you don't want a group excursion.
It is a for me it is a fun excursion, so we hire the vehicle and it is about 4-5 hours from Yangon.
Hpa-an's Kyauk Kalat Pagoda
Hpa-an's Kyauk Kalat Pagoda is a breathtaking stupa-limestone tip, located on a small island with monastery houses, which lies in a pond with blank herons and is encircled by rice fields. Although Kyauk Kalat is not (yet) as well known to the tourist as Shwedagon, Mount Popa, U Bein Bridge or the Golden Rock, it would certainly deserve a place on Burma's most famous sightseeing lists.
There is a walkway to the top of the peninsula, and there is a sanctuary at half the height of the eruption. It is an open and meditative place, so please keep your shoes off at the end of the platform and be quiet and respectful.
It is fringed by hanging rainy-tree lakes and is visited by otters, stork and heron as well as omnipresent dove. This small cabinet at half height of the cliff offers a magnificent view of the pond, the rice field and Zwegabin near by. It makes sense to taboo the peak that is achieved via a treacherous wood stair.
It' s not long to go to Kyauk Kalat, even if the views are not lingering, but as it is very much loved by locals and overseas, there are many teashops and sellers of snacks, drinks and ices at the parking lot for a pause before logging in to study the remainder of this tale.
Out of Hpa-an take the major street and drive past the Than Lwin Bridge. Continuing on the motorway, you will see the rocky peak on your lefthand side towards Zwegabin. A few kilometers further on you will find a turnoff signposted in German. A further street to the right of this street leads you on an asphalt street to the entry of Kyauk Kalat.
