The most important activities in Hpa An Myanmar / Burma
It can be a high point of your journey to Myanmar, so it is definitely a good idea to budget for it. There' s no cost to write, but you can make a contribution. In order to reach the Bats den, turn right from the highway and drive through a small town.
Like the name already says, there is a den with a few bat, which is opened however only at 18 o'clock. There' s no cost and we haven't seen anything we can give. Aka Kaw Goon Cape, it is on the other side of the highway coming from the viaduct.
When you leave the Bats Den, you can take the street that winds around and under the viaduct before taking a small dirt track southwards to the den. And if you've never experienced anything like it, it's definitely something to explore. Antique woodcarvings and engravings can be seen on the wall of the caves.
In the course of the years they have constructed many newer Buddha-statures. Mostly it consists of an entry fringed with Buddhas, a large fenced-in Buddha and a grotto with many engravings and new Buddha sculptures, incl. a sparkling discotheque at the back.... not sure how else to describe it.
When you want to reach the top of the caves to get an amazing view, you can do this for free and it will take about 15-20 mins. You require a mandatory'donation' of 5000 kayts (4 US$ / 2.5 GBP) to get into this caves.
While you are in the area of Kawgun Caves, a trip to Ya Thay Pyan Caves is well worthwhile. I myself have really appreciated this cavern much more, because it has a much more fearless feeling and it is possible to investigate it more profound. You will find Ya Thay Pyan Pave again down the street where you came up and on the south.
If you come near, there's a crossroads, take the one on the other. It is not only that there are often apes here, but the cavern goes much further than you think. Buddha pukes and it's about the exploration of the caves. There was no cost for the caves at the time of the letter (2016), but there is a place for a fund.
The way to this cavern is currently not shown on Googleaps. When you drive southwards on the Kawgun Street (off the beaten track ), turn right before reaching the Kawgun Grotto. Continue along this street and turn to your lefthand side, where there is a crossroad.
A 3-5 minute motorcycle tour will take you to the parking lot of Ya Thay Pyan Caves.
