I just saw about Kyone Htaw waterfall photos from one of my Facebook friends. It's really amazing. Where is that actually? How to go there? Is that possible for a foreigner to go there? 
 

Thanks.

Kyone Htaw waterfall is located near Hpa-An. It's under the control of DKBA (Kayin Ethnic Army). Now the government signed peace contract and the waterfall became popular among the local visitors. 

 

I'm not sure it's okay to go for a foreigner. The road to there is not too good. One sad thing is no beer is allowed in that area.

Fruit of peace?? I  strongly oppose that it is the result of National Ceasefire agreement which was signed two months ago. On the contrast, I'm in favour of, for a number of reasons, the result simply comes from the mindset changing of DKBA. 

 

The most important reason is the waterfall is open for all visitors before signing. As i live in the border of Thailand near with Kyain State, I'd been there so many times before. No restrictions even for a foreigner. But they asked if you're from Burma or looks like Bamar. Although they ask some questions like where to go or why are you here, it's not too serious. If you say "waterfall', everthing is okay since that time. 

 

Another reason is it's not under the total control of DKBA. It's the area of Myaing Gyi Ngu Monk. The monk who is very famous among thai and myanmar people as well as very influential on DKBA. So, that area is peaceful before ceasefire. 

 

But, unfortunately, I don't know why it becomes popular only these days among your people. The waterfall is already famous in Thai people long long ago.
