Mt Hpan Pu

Hiking in Hpa-an

Mt Hpan Pu is a craggy, pagoda-topped peak that can be scaled in one sweaty morning. To get here, hop on a boat across the Thanlwin River from the informal jetty near Shweyinhmyaw Paya. After reaching the other side, you’ll walk through a quiet village before the steep but relatively short ascent to the top.

The views of the river and the surrounding rice fields and limestone cliffs (including Mt Zwegabin) are astounding.
