Private Full-Day Trip to Kakku from Inle

Our guide will pick you up from your lake side resort at around 9am. Via a short boat ride to the main pier, we head out to Taunggyi (30 kilometers outside of Inle Lake, around 1 hour drive by car, depending on road and weather conditions) to Kakku. The Kakku Pagoda Complex spans a bewildering variety of styles, marking the prevailing architectural trends when they were constructed. The Shan-style stupas are surrounded by a small number of stupas that resemble small monasteries, which are unique to this region. Due to the decay over the years, it has been possible to renovate the stupas after pilgrims and locals donated money for upholding this site. The sheer size of 2478 stupas will certainly give you plenty of excellent photos.After lunch at a local restaurant, we will leave Kakku and head out to Htan Phaya, a village with a cave that bears the same name. Numerous Shan Buddha images of various sizes are kept on the wall of the small and shallow cave. We end this day tour visiting a local Pa O Village with includes various plantations before returning back via Taunggyi back to your booked resort along the Inle Lake shores. We expect to be back at around 6pm.
