Full Day Hpa An Tour
Spend the day discovering the wealth of natural attractions that surrounding the small riverside town of Hpa An, including the thousands of neatly aligned Buddha statues at Lumbini Gardens, the striking Kyauk Ka Lat and the Bat Cave in time for sunset.
After meeting with your guide at your hotel, the first stop will be Sadan Cave. Appearing from the outside to be a typical Burmese Cave, the Sadan Cave is filled with Buddha images that then leads into a natural tunnel. After an approximate fifteen minute walk, you reach the end of the tunnel where you are rewarded with a spectacular view over a hidden lake and meadow.
After a tea break and a short boat trip around the lake with a local boatman, continue on to Lumbini Gardens (Buddha Park) to explore the thousands of nearly aligned Buddha statues at the base of Mount Zwekabin. Near Lumbini Gardens, you will also make a visit to Kyauk Ka Lat, a striking pagoda atop a natural rock structure in the middle of a man-made lake.
The next stop will be Kawgun Cave, often referred to as the ‘Cave of Ten Thousand Buddhas’. Constructed by King Manuaha after a battle loss, this large cave has thousands of Buddha images and Mon inscription carvings all over its wall, many dating as a far back as the 7th Century.
The day draws to a close with a sunset visit to Hpa An’s Bat Cave. As the sun dips behind the Thanlwin River, tens of thousands of bats emerge from the cave in their droves, creating an unforgettable sight against the darkening sky.
As the Sadan Cave is only open between November and March, another cave will be substituted during these months.
