Hpa An (Pa-An) is the capital of Kayin State with a population of 40,000 people. It is only about 270 km from Yangon – the ancient capital of Myanmar.
The highlights of Hpa An are its significant caves and karst mountain scenery. There you can visit an impressive monastery called Kyauk Kalap, located uniquely on top of a rock formation in a small reservoir. From the monastery, a tempting adventure is waiting for you to climb the Mount Zwegabin which has a lot of beautiful sceneries along the way up and there awaits spectacular views from the top. Wandering around bustling morning markets, getting to know the local monks and spending hours of solitude make Hpa An a worth drop-by for a few days in a Myanmar tour package.
