Went on a one-day hike at Nyaungshwe which I booked at Sunny Day Tours. As my Bamar guide told me, a day hike is too short to really visit villages. He was right. There really wasn’t much to see. There were good views but not really something to hike for.
What it lacked in views, however, was somehow compensated by the meditation cave and the school I visited.
The cave is really nice and you can go to some deeper nooks with a torch.
You exit at the orher side where there’s a nice meditation room.
Down some steps and back to the village.
I visited the school which runs on donations by a Japanese couple. This is the second one I visited in this trip; the first one being in Sagaing. It was fun taking pictures of the kids who got a kick out of seeing themselves on my phone screen.
We rested at a shady spot on a monastery.
