Monywa - The caves of Powindaung


3-hour cross country drive, beginning in the early morning, to Monywa on the Chindwin river; this drive through the plain is not very impressive, but the destination is worth it: after you have crossed the Chindwin in Monywa via boat and after a 1-hour drive with a pick up (local communal taxi), you will reach the great caves of Powindaung, which will amaze you with their innumerable Buddha-representations, and which are known as a highlight of Burmese art of the middle ages, because of their extravagant cave paintings. Overnight-stay in a (simple!) hotel in Monywa.
