Arriving at the parking lot, you think something extraordinary will come up as the parking lot is full of them. On foot the close proximity to the grotto and there is almost a small marketplace with stands and crowds squirting out of the grotto in a small brook.
Once that's cleared up and you're in the den, you'll be thrilled by the gathering of the crypts and the Buddha's. Pyin Oo Lwin is the first conscious ecotrekking adventurous and tourism operator in Pyin Oo Lwin. Together with my friend and our fantastic Zay tourist leader I did this trip.
1 days in advanced we selected the 3 days, 2 nights hike. Every single one of the days we saw various particular places of interest, adventure, surprising humans and good meal (so much food). On the first morning you will stay some days in a small town with a cloister. Here you can bathe in secluded swimming pools, take a dip under a mighty cascade, explore a cavern and watch the sun rise from your tree house.
Higher up he took us to a really wonderful cascade where we had plenty of free space to take a little dip and some showers. Later, we had our lunches in a small lumberjack town. On the third and last part of the hike the most difficult and, in my view, the most wonderful part was the last one.
In the first part you will hike, rock climbing, jump and take many photos along the beautiful creek full of whitest stone and deep waters. Please be sure to take good footwear with you, as there will be many leafs and small cliffs that will make you slide away from and on. You will reach the summit after a while, where everything becomes simpler again.
Once at the top you'll have some teas with a few locals and then drive on to the Mango hamlet where you'll have a really good luncheon (the best we had in Myanmar). It was very delightful that the organisation works together with the inhabitants of the surrounding area. Every luncheon and dinner is prepared by locals who are living in the area.
Last thing I liked about this trek was to smoke Myanmar cigarettes and drink with Zay Glückswasser! The rainy season was over and the watercolor was slushy. The waterfall wasn't too big. The site was not very far from the town of Pyin Oo Lwin. However, the waters came from the Gel Laung stream through the town was very filthy.
And I saw some folks swim there. In fact, the waters for the recreational area should be pure. It was nice to see this nice temple after 10 day of visits to churches and statues. If you are in the area, a trip is worthwhile.
