Myanmar: Beat the Heat: Shan Secret Waterfall Hike (video)

WATCH15 Beat the Heat: Shan Secret Waterfall Hike, Hsipaw, Myanmar (Burma) 

In order to beat the heat, we made a plan to be up by 7am, meet for breakfast around 7:30 am and be on the road to the waterfall by 8am. I ate the rice and beans with eggs but the Noodle soup also looked tasty. Armed with 2L of water each and some snacks, we set off on the trail to the waterfall.

Following the train tracks, we arrived at the Golden Rock not as large as the one in the South near Bago but brightly colored and very photo worthy. The Standing Buddha was also large maybe 15 feet with corn drying at his feet. Hnit Htawng Nar Yar (Monastery near Golden Rock)

While on the main road, locals on motorbikes called out Hello! We answered, “Mingla-ba!” The large trucks beeped loudly as they passed smaller cars, bicycles and motorbikes. Once we got off the road, we were rewarded with peace, quiet and gorgeous pastoral scenes with people working in the fields. October 5, 2012

This movie is from our 28 days in Myanmar (Burma) from September 28, 2012 to October 26, 2012 and our year TRIP in South East Asia, see all the videos from our trip.

  1. I love how “unspoilt” by development it looks (I know that is a relative thing). Myanmar is on my must-see list. How cool that you got to explore it for so long!
