Loved to climb up there, as I knew last months, it was banned to go up as it strength got weak. It feeling itchy in my feet as I went up. Retangular verandah at each floor, spiral stairs to the top, so steep, woo! I am afraid of but funny.

It's too broken to go up, so you could only view from the ground. It's just a normal tower but good to take a look.

This is one of the stop on the Inwa tour. There is no need to stop here for long as it is not allowed to climb up the tower.

As the tower is slanted, public is not allow to go up to the tower. Only can photos outside. But did not see any tourist stop there. We also only stop over to take one photo only.

You can see it among the trees while you approach it by horse car. It's a compulsory stop during the touristic visit to the old capital of Myanmar, Innwa (or Ava). The most curious is that is a leaning tower, affected by the different earthquakes that happened during the last years wich have damaged it quite a lot. Although there... More

A quick stop to take some photos, and learn a little. I love the way the tower is leaning along with the small bits around the Base due to the famous earthquake. But keep your eye peeled for snakes.

This leaning tower is all that is left standing after an earthquake destroyed the buildings around it. The stairs were blocked so that passage to the top was impossible. The stairs appeared rather dangerous. Nice place for pics and for the historical perspective, but that's about it.
