TUNGGYI: Taunggyi, over 1430m above sealevel, is the capitol of Shan State. Once a large city and commercial center of this prolific area, it was once a UK mountain resort because the weather is cold and comfortable all year round. Taunggyi's yearly ballooning festival is very much loved throughout Myanmar, and the crowds come to see the wonders of the sky that have been made in honor of Buddha.
Pyrotechnics fill the skies and Taunggyi becomes the center of fun and amusement for three whole day and three night. From Inlelake to Taunggyi it will take about an hours drive. Golf lovers can enjoy the additional benefit of the 18-hole Aye Thay Gold Resort, situated at the foot of Taunggyi High.
Kakkku: Kakku, about 40 km southwards of Taunggyi (1½ hours drive), is one of the most popular places of worship in Shan state and the most sacred place of worship of the population.
