East & Northwest Myanmar
East and Northwest Myanmar - TravelPuppy.com
This area of Myanmar provides great chances for walking and rock-climbing, and a number of hill stations including Kalaw offer a pine-forested retreat from the humidity and heat of Yangon. The lake and caves at Pindaya are very well known; the caves house thousands of Buddha images. The Padah-Lin Caves which contains prehistoric paintings is located close to the village of Yengan.

Situated on the Shan Plateau, the Inlay Lake is popular for its floating gardens and leg-rowing fishermen. Maymyo is an attractive British hill station to the north, with beautiful waterfalls and a delightful climate because of its high altitude.

Difficult communications normally prevents visits to the largely tribal Northwest. A large number of Myanmar’s minority people live here.
