Hire a guide (if you are a Westerner, they will spot you pretty quickly.) The guides have a mediocre knowledge but will be beneficial in helping you navigate the site which is expansive. A guide for an hour is 5000 kyat.

I thought that this would be some kind of deep, amazing cave with all sorts of cavities going deeper and deeper into the mountains, but instead, found a whole bunch of shallow "caves" with Buddhas chiseled inside the walls. Everything is falling into pieces and...More

There are hundreds of small and bigger caves with beautiful paintings all over the walls telling the story of Siddhartha Gautama (the last Buddha) from the time at his father's palace to his enlightment under the bodhi tree. Some of the sitting and reclining Buddhas...More

This was just another breathtaking and stunning place which I did not expect at all. This really should be supported by the UNESCO. It is a huge cave area with 999 small caves with countless Buddha statues inside. I never saw something like this before....More

Good site. Lots of walking. Lots of temples but in bad shape. Beware of moneys - quite fierce. Better to wear good walking shoes and appropriately dress. Many statues in cave and paintings very badly maintained. Better to have a guide. Rich in history

Truly quite a sight to behold Very intact statues and wall drawings. When we went there were only a few other people, many monkeys however. Watch your shoes which you must remove before going inside the caves. The ride there took one hour from town,...More
