Sadan Cave, Hpa-An (Kayin State-Myanmar)

This huge cave is simply breathtaking and amazing. As you enter the football stadium-sized cavern you’ll see dozens of Buddha statues, a couple of pagodas and some newer clay wall carvings. #BIM

Sadan Cave, Hpa-An (Kayin State-Myanmar)

The real adventure is walking through the near dark cave with hundreds of thousands of bats around the roof. Some of them may defeat on you or to the ground. #BIM

Sadan Cave, Hpa-An (Kayin State-Myanmar)

In some legend might mention this is the cave that Buddha past life as Sadan Elephant and spent the last dying days of his life. Just before the cave exit there is a small hole up in the roof, and some say this is the place where the hunter try to strike with an arrow to the great Sadan Elephant. #BIM

Sadan Cave, Hpa-An (Kayin State-Myanmar)

As you exit the cave on the other site you will be amazed by beautiful scene and a small lake that you can ride a boat back to the near entrance. It will feel you like you are in the central of Myanmar culture.  #BIM

Kyauk Kalap and Zwegabin Mountain from Hpa-An.

Hpa-an is full with chain of limestone mountains. 
The tallest of these is Zwegabin Mountain , about 7 miles south of town,2372ft and it’s a demanding two-hour hike to the top..!

The view from top of the mountain is really amazing and breathtaking..!

Kyone Htaw waterfall from Hlaing Bwe (Kayin State-Myanmar)

Hlaing Bwe is suffered by civil war for more than sixty five years and the town has a lot of natural places to visit.
This waterfall is one of the amazing place and the water is clean and green. Strongest water filling time is during the rainy season and you should avoid that time.

You will be amazed by the great nature surrounding the waterfall and the smell of the fresh air..! #BIM

Hpar Pu mountain from Kayin State Myanmar.

Fabulous views of the Thanlwin River and its surrounding fields and limestone hills can also be enjoyed from the pagoda on Mount Hpar Pu, reached by taking the ferry across the river from near Shweyinhmyaw Paya; once across, a twenty-minute walk through a village and another thirty minutes uphill will lead you to the pagoda. #BIM

Amazing pictures backpackingmyanmar, it really makes me want to go to Hpa-An now :)

Particularly the panoramic waterfall picture, it looks awesome. How do we get to these waterfalls, is it far from Hpa-An?

Not.exactly in Hpa-An. A town called Hlaing Bwe and sub township called Myein Gyi Ngu, which is 50 miles from Hpa-An. If you are local,I mean Myanmar you can go to this place. If you aren't you can't. But other places in Hpa-An can visit by tourists.!
check out my facebook page backpacking in myanmar. Ask me any thing and I will try my best to help.!

You definitely got several people interested in Kayin state with that post, if they didn't knew about it before, me included. 

I mean, I knew about Hpa-An and heard it was nice but never really planned to go there, but that might change now. So all these pictures are taken by yourself? You've been to all these places?
