Kakku Pagodas ,
Myanmar, Lake Inle
Info : Kakku Pagodas
The origins of the 2,000 stupas at Kakku Pagoda are shrouded in mystery. In the morning part of this guided day tour, you can choose to travel by boat to the temple complex or take a short trek there through the glorious Shan Hills. Relish the crazy history of how this fascinating site came to be discovered by some local farmers with a curious wild pig. To this day, no-one can be sure who constructed the pagoda in the first place.
The tour continues to Lake Inle with a stop at fascinating Taung Gyi en route. In this beautiful high-altitude town, you can wander through the famous Myoma markets, eat at one of many wonderful restaurants or just take in the beautiful green scenery.

Family Myanmar Adventure
This itinerary perfectly combines the highlights of Myanmar with something a little extra special!
We enjoyed a 3 week trip exploring both the well known places as well as the less developed areas. We also balanced the trip with a variety of walks and activities as well as time for several half day breaks to relax. The Myanmar people are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The colours of the country are outstanding, wonderful dusty landscapes with rice fields and palm trees as well as so many amazing pagodas rich in colour and symbolism. Our best parts were the less well known places but Lake Inle and Bagan are must do places and are still not overrun by tourists. Experience Travel Group tailored a trip for our needs and knew how to do so and suggest appropriate hotels and means of travel.
