Peaceful and cooling. Advisable to travel during November to December period due to the cooling weather!

I would suggest that the falls are not really for western visitors. There are dozens of stalls selling local produce and the falls themselves have been ruined. Similarly the Buddha images in the caves are really tacky. I would never want to come here again...More

This waterfalls, called BE or Pwe Kauk waterfalls, is a must-visit site in Maymyo. It is a bit far from the town. Although not steep like the Anisakan Falls, it is a beautiful waterfalls. Local wines can be bought at the nearby shops.
