Pindaya, Nr Lake Inle , Lake Inle Myanmar, Lake Inle
Situated on the Shan plateau, the town of Pindaya is well-known for its extraordinary limestone caves, full of thousands of Buddha images and an important pilgrimage site for many Buddhists in Burma. The images span several centuries and so offer an interesting view of how their style has changed over time. Also nearby in Pindaya is Kakku, a large and important pagoda for the local Pa-Oh people, one of Myanmar's many ethnic minority groups. Kakku contains over 2000 tightly packed stupas, each thin and spiky in style, and is one of the country's most impressive but lesser-known temples.
The guides were very good and probably made the holiday. They were all well informed, very attentive and responsive to our needs.…. The drivers and guides were all very patient and good humoured and we had lots of laughs along the way.
