Approximately an hour's car journey from Mandalay and a two-hour motorcycle trip from Pyin Oo Lwin in the Shan Highlands, Dee Dote is definitely a bit strenuous. Begin early and spend a whole full working days for Dee Dote and neighbouring Anisakan Falls. Hiring a motorcycle to get there from Pyin Oo Lwin will probably be the least expensive alternative, but visiting Dee Dote from Mandalay is also custom.
Follow the Mandalay-Lashio Highway towards Mandalay (when you leave Pyin Oo Lwin) and turn in front of the hamlet of Ohn Chaw. There' gonna be a shield for Dee Dote Fall sometime. There is a little congestion around the waterfall basis. Also near Dee Dote Falls there are a number of caverns to explor.
When you stay in Pyin Oo Lwin, you dare to go back in history to see Anisakan Falls for at least half a year. Pyin Oo Lwin's most important excursion is to Anisakan Falls, about six mile. Situated on the edge of the town of Anisakan (Anesakhan), this area is ideal for walking.
There are a number of cliffy, wooded paths that allow you to view the beautiful, stratified falls, which thunder almost 400 ft deep into a lively, verdant ravine, from various angles. From Pyin Oo Lwin to Anisakan Falls, take the Mandalay-Lashio Highway towards Mandalay. Anisakan ( also known as Dat Taw Gyaik) Falls is a 45 minute long, strenuous drive from the park.
Walk during the Myanmar monsun ( "May-October") for a really great time. Anisakan and back deserve a full or at least half a full days when used in combination with Dee Dote Falls. While Pwe Kauk (Gauk) Falls (formerly Hampshire Falls) do not have the same rising charm as Dote Dee or Anisakan, the proximity to Pyin Oo Lwin (about five leagues to Lashio) makes the enjoyment of this tourist destination rewarding.
Pwe Cauk's tiered waterfalls are attractive for hiking trails, crossover walkways, playgrounds for children and traders who sell local snack and souvenir shops. Take a cab from Pyin Oo Lwin. The Hsipaw Falls, Nam Tok (Nam Tuk) Falls, are located about three kilometres from Hsipaw in the north of Shan State.
From Hsipaw, take the Mandalay-Lashio Highway towards Pyin Oo Lwin, then take a bike-friendly country lane for a rolling getaway. Step in to chill out after the exertion necessary to get there. WellHuNwe ("WellHooNwe") Falls are a little further away from Hsipaw than Nam Tok.
Kyaiktiyo has more to offer than a gold stone. Descend from the hectic mountain peaks and drive down to Kyaiktiyo (Kyaik Htee Yoe) Fall. The Kyaiktiyo Fall flows into a pretty big well. There is not much clear waters, but the waterfalls give off a stimulating fog. Zin Kyaik (Zin Kyite) casts fall waters next to the Yangon-Dawei railway line, just off the Mawlamyaing Road, which leads to the town of Mawlamyine.
Nicknamed after the neighbouring town, these cascades are well known among the local people and offer the most activity around the full moon day of Waso - the beginning of Buddhist Lent. Like Pwe Kauk Falls, Zin Kyaik is not the most conspicuous waterfall in Myanmar. But it is on its way to Myanmar's 4th biggest town and the Kyaiktiyo Pagoda.
In Myanmar's torrid February-May summers, little to no rain falls over the huge rock. The secluded Kyone Htaw Falls in Kayin State is a secret haven that has largely disappeared from Myanmar's radars for most tourist. Beautiful, picturesque falls are captivating with their naturally aquatic blue waters, so don't miss your opportunity to dive in.
