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

There is a slightly annoying/money greedy woman who hails you down from her hut and asks you to pay an entrance fee of 2500. Not sure if this is legitimate or not. Our money is definitely not being invested into any signposts or clean up...More
We decided to break our journey from Mandalay to Bagan and decided to stay in Monywa for two nights and are glad we did.

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
Mynamar Shalom organizer, Sammy, insisted we go to this "off the beaten track" "site". OMG MUST DO... so i think we took a "shortcut" thru fields, passing oxen at work, almost losing an axle... and it was a long haul... and I am THRILLED we...More

Sorry for your husband's condition- yes, barefoot.... not negotiable . I tried the sock thing bc - lets be honest- its dirty and idea of walking barefoot on dirt and pebbles is antithetical to how we live. BUT.....This was my favorite site from our 2 week trip and your husband should wear shoes but when he arrives at caves (thousands of them) either pop his head in or see how he manages w out. Its amazing.
