KalawKalaw, a peaceful and quiet town, perched on the western edge of the Shan Plateau, at an altitute of 1320 m. In British colonial days, it was a popular hill station owing to the pleasant weather and the beautiful surroundings. It has a significant population of Nepalis and Indians, who came here to build the roads and railways during the colonial period. The town is surrounded by hilltop viewpoints and the peaceful villages of the Palaung, Danu, Taung Yo and Pa-O tribes, all set in a gorgeous landscape of forest-capped hills. Kalaw is the starting point for trekking to those places.

About 45 km northeast of Kalaw, the small town of Pindaya is nestled snugly at the foot of a limestone ridge. The town is well known for its picturesque Botaloke Lake and its impressive caves filled with countless Buddha statues. To reach Pindaya, you'll pass a colorful patchwork of the fields and hedges, which are pleasing to the eye. The beautiful landscape along the way alone makes it worthwhile for you to visit Pindaya. The main reason to make this appealing journey is to visit the famous Pindaya Cave, which houses more than 8000 Buddha Images in variety of shapes and sizes.
