After morning pickup from your lakeside resort or hotel in the morning, depart Inle Lake via a brief boat ride from the pier. After about a 1-hour drive in the comfort of your private vehicle, you'll pass through Taunggyi en route to your destination at Kakku.
On arrival at the Kakku pagoda complex, explore the bewildering religious site with your personal guide. You'll have plenty of photo ops of some 2,478 Shan-style stupas unique to this region. Learn about restoration efforts as you marvel at their sheer size and volume.
After lunch at a local restaurant, depart Kakku for Htan Phaya, a village with a shallow cave featuring numerous Shan Buddha images. Pay a visit to a plantation at a local Pa-O village before returning via Taunggyi to your accommodation on the shoreline of Inle Lake.
