Overview

Visit a colonial-era hill station on a full-day, private trip from Mandalay to Pyin Oo Lwin, or Maymyo, and enjoy the cooler hill climate as you explore historic architecture, limestone caves, and a scenic waterfall. This 10-hour tour includes pickup and drop-off at your hotel in Mandalay, lunch at a local restaurant, and all entrance fees, and offers the personalized experience of a private guide.
  • 10-hour Maymyo tour from Mandalay
  • Spend a day in the cooler climate of a former hill station
  • Horse-drawn carriage ride through the town
  • Eat lunch at a local restaurant
  • Visit a limestone cave filled with shrines
  • See a scenic waterfall
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off in Mandalay
Start with 8am pickup at your hotel in Mandalay, then begin the 2-hour drive to Pyin Oo Lwin in a private car. Upon arrival in the former hill station, explore the historic center on a horse-drawn carriage ride, and keep your camera ready to snap photos of the city's vibrant markets, botanical garden, and colonial architecture.
Visit a simple restaurant for a local-style lunch, then continue to Peik Khyin Myaung Cave, where you’ll find a series of shrines in the long limestone cavern. See some of the trailing pepper vines that the cave is named for, and browse for souvenirs at the small market outside of the cave.
The final stop of the day is Pwe Kyauk Falls, a favorite spot for picnicking and swimming at the edge of the forest, with shallow water for wading and a small riverside stupa. This full-day tour concludes with return transfer to Mandalay, and drop-off at your hotel.

We enjoyed the tour though we skipped the horse cart ride as we were not too keen on that. Our guide Sai was good. He was helpful, friendly and patient. It was a hot day when we were in Pyin Oo Lwin but he walked with us to the Orchid Garden and patiently waited while my husband took countless photos of the orchids. He even brought us to a wholesale flower market along the way and to a coffee place when my husband asked about Burmese coffee. And when we got back to Mandaly ahead of time and wanted to visit a gem shop which was not part of the tour he willingly brought us there and waited.

When we indicated we would prefer to eat in a typically local restaurant lunch was included we think he changed the designated restaurant and brought us there instead.

Wonderful trip out to see the countryside and the old British way of life there. So different to areas along the Irrawaddy. Would recommend.
