“Amazing waterfall hidden in a heavily wooded valley”
Review of Anisakan Falls

Attraction details
Reviewed March 2, 2013

This felt a little like a setting from an Indiana Jones film, but in real life. The impression of being in a hidden valley was reinforced by the steep decent from the Dat Taw Gyaik Waterfalls Resort (which is currently closed in March 2013) on a rickety path which no one else seemed to be using. We needed assistance from our hotel to arrange to start the walk from this location. After around 45 mins following a local lad who was asking as our guide, we arrived at the waterfall, even in the heat of the day the cool breeze and light water spray in the air was very refreshing. A single stall was selling refreshments near the waterfall and a small number of local sightseers had made the trek down an alternative route. The return hike back up the hill was very good exercise! If anyone follows the route we took I would recommend you need a reasonable degree of fitness, several bottles of water, stout footwear (I was wary of snakes) and a guide just for reassurance and to mark the way. Other routes as outlined in the Lonely Planet may be more straightforward! All in all it was a memorable 2-3 hour expedition and only about 20 mins drive from Pyin Oo Lwin..
