Tour of Kakku
Discover one of Myanmar’s hidden gems as you move away from the tourist trail and head to Kakku, home to 2,500 centuries old stupas hidden amongst the Shan hills.
From low-lying rice paddles to hillside fields and farms, admire the incredible scenery as you travel through the winding roads leading from Inle Lake into Shan Hills. You will cross through the capital of Shan State, Taunggyi and further, passing through villages that have been inhabited by Pa-Oh people before reaching Kakku. As you enter into Kakku you will be stunned by the thousands of stupas that come into view. Wander amid the structures, some of which are 20 metres high and get a closer look at the details and carvings found in some of the stupas. Enjoy the solitude of Kakku as few tourists tend to make it there, making the location more remote.
After exploring Kakku, take a break to have some lunch at a local restaurant then begin your drive back down from the highlands, making a stop at the Pa-Oh village along the way.
