Pindaya

Destination Explanations

Specialist Subject: Pindaya

An hour and a half's drive from Kalaw in southwestern Shan State, through a landscape of glowing red and yellow somewhat reminiscent of Tuscany, you will come to the cosy little town of Pindaya. From a distance, you can see the white covered walkways to the much venerated limestone Pindaya Caves, winding up the hill like giant snakes.
It is possible either to climb the hundreds of steps on foot or take the lift, and once you are at the top you will be greeted by a breathtaking view of the hills opposite and of the town itself, with its artificial lake and the mighty banyan trees around it. According to the legend, four princesses were bathing in the nearby Boutalake Lake and were abducted by a giant spider, which kept them imprisoned in the cave. A bold prince killed the monster with a bow and arrows, rescued the princesses, and took the most beautiful of them as his wife.
