Hpa An

Hpa An is the quiet capital of Kayin State with a rather small town feel. The main attractions here are found in the outskirts of town where its natural beauty have captivated tourists. Kawgun Cave is one such attraction, located in its remote hills. It houses the rich gallery of ancient Buddhist art dating back to the 7th century engraved on its limestone rock. From there, you can head to Mount ZweKabin, one of the most revered mountains in the country where a pagoda sits atop. It is a 2 hour hike up, but a cable car is also available. The mountain also houses caverns where special surprises await for its curious visitors, such as a vast collection of identical Buddha statues hidden within one of its caves.
