British Hill Station Pyin Oo Lwin: Excursion From Mandalay 8 hours

  • Private tour
  • Solo friendly
  • Family friendly

The picturesque town of the former British Hill Station Pyin Oo Lwin (also known as Maymyo), which is located some 67 kilometers (42 mi) east of Mandalay and captivates its visitors due to its pleasant climate and charming townscape.

Pyin Oo Lwin's National Kandawgyi Gardens is the only botanical garden in Myanmar. It houses a big collection of different flowers and plants. As for its beauty, it is a popular spot for locals who come for recreation. Also, there are three museums: Fossils Museum, Petrified Wood Museum, and the Butterfly Museum.

The building of the Maha Ant Htoo Kan Thar pagoda has a history of its own. Originally, three marble Buddha images, sculpted in Mandalay, were transferred to their planned destination in China. On this journey, one of the Buddha statues fell from the lorry and could not be reloaded due to its weight. After many attempts, this image was finally left behind. Here, a pagoda was built for the travelers to pay homage.

In the afternoon, visit the Pwe Kauk waterfalls, a popular sport for Myanmar families to come for a picnic. The waterfalls are not particularly high, so you can take a pleasant walk around.
