About
One of the Asia's largest and most spectacular ancient monuments is a wonderful Pagoda named Kakku. It contains over 2.000 stupas with origins dating back many centuries.  Kakku is about 33 miles from Taunggyi. It will take about 3 hours drive by car. Kakku is located in the Shan State. Its exists not only as an outstanding example of tradition art and architecture but also as a testament to the religious devotion of one of Myanmar's many ethnic minorities, The Pa-Oh. For many centuries, the Pa-Oh has lived in peace, cultivating their land and devoting much of their energy and limited wealth to creating monasteries and pagodas.

What to expect
  • Travel deep into the Shan hills to the hidden ‘forest of temples’ at Kakku. Traveling from the flat-lands around Inle Lake, drive higher and higher into the hills, crisscrossing the railway line and villages. The journey is rewarded when reaching Kakku: more than 2000 stupas from the 11th-century rise high above a plain. Wander amid these mysterious stupas, far from the tourist trail. Your adventure begins in the morning after breakfast. Set off from the low-lying lands at Inle Lake toward Taunggyi, then head into the rolling hills toward the east of the lake. The drive is spectacular, crossing over the railway line and through small villages inhabited to the Pa-Oh people.  After two hours drive, arrive at Kakku. The first view of Kakku is breathtaking: there are more than 2000 individual stupas, some of which are 20 meters high, and several Buddha images scattered throughout. Wander throughout the temples, taking your time to enjoy the wonder and awe of this site and discover the intricate carvings and details on the structures. Lunch will be provided in the restaurant near Kakku.
