1 Day - Hiking Mountain Zwekabin
Hpa An is the state capital of Karen State with about 80.000 inhabitants. Literally it can be translated with frog vomit. Of course we tell you the origin of the name. We pick you up at your hotel and drive over to the west site access to climb up the less steep site. Be prepared for many stairs rather than a trek. For average fit people it can be done in 2 hours to reach the 723 meters high summit. Enjoy the majestic view from the top before descending for about 1 hours.
Afterwards we go for lunch at a traditional Mon Curry house. Probably the most beautiful cave is Saddar Cave. We walk through an entire lime stone mountain range. Especially the caves stalagmites and stalactites are incredibly beautiful. Fortunately we don’t need to return the same way. A traditional wooden boat is taking us under the lime stone range back to the car park.
Our next stop is Kyauk Kalat Monastery, which is built on top of a single rock formations surrounded by a scenic lake. In the late afternoon we visit the bat cave, where more than thousands of bats come out every night to find food. The sky is darkening and it is said they fly as far as Mawlamyine to still there hunger. After sunset return to your hotel.
