2 Days overland from Bagan to Kalaw via Mt. Popa

From € 38 p.p. 38
Private overland transfer with or without a guide from Bagan to Kalaw. Stop on the way at the amazing Mt. Popa.
Mount Popa is a volcano 1518 metres (4981 feet) above sea level, and located in central Burma (Myanmar) about 50 km  southeast of Bagan (Pagan) in the Pegu Range. It can be seen from the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River as far away as 60 km  in clear weather. Mount Popa is perhaps best known for the nearby stunningly picturesque Popa Taungkalat monastery atop an outcrop.
 
The Popa Taungkalat (Taung Kalat) Shrine is home to 37 Mahagiri Nats, or spirits. Statues depicting the Nats are at the base of the Shrine. Most people visit Mount Popa as a daytrip from nearby Bagan. It's only about 50km away but due to the conditions of the road and vehicles, it will take at least 1hr 30min to get there.

The next day travel across the country to the old British hill station of Kalaw.
Kalaw stands high on the western edge of the Shan Plateau. It is 70 km west of Taungyi. about halfway along the Thazi-Taungyi road. This was a popular hill station in the British days and it is still a peaceful and quiet place. At an altitude of 1320 m it is also pleasantly cool and a good place for hiking amid gnarled pines. bamboo groves and rugged mountain scene.
 
 

A former colonial British hill station. this small-town offers cool temperatures (Kalaw sits at 1.300 meters elevation) and plenty of trekking opportunities. The population is a mix of Shan. Indian Muslims. Bamars and Nepalis (Gurkhas retired from British military service). many of whom are missionary educated. Traveling by car. it's about two hours west of Nyaungshwe on the western edge of the Shan hills.
From € 38 p.p. 38
