Kyauk Ka Lat Pagoda

Directly to the south of Hpa An, on the way to Zwegabin, is the Kyauk Ka lat – a truly unique pagoda, set on top of an unusual rock formation in the middle of a (man-made) lake. It is a beautiful spot and another that offers great photo opportunities of Mount Zwegabin.

Sadan Cave

Nearby to Hpa An can also be found Sadan Cave, which opens into a gigantic cavern filled with Buddhas and pagodas and can be walked all the way through to the other side, under the mountain.

Kaw Ka Taung Cave

10 kilometres to the south east of Hpa An you will find Kaw Ka Taung caves and pool; the swimming area here provides an opportunity to wind down and cool off after a day of exploring (although it can get busy with local children), and offers lovely views of the surrounding rice paddies and mountains. There are also a number of restaurants here that serve great local and Thai food.
