Hsipaw, Hsipaw
(4.3/5 based on 190 reviews on the web)
Situated on a riverbank, Hsipaw draws tourists with its laidback atmosphere and rich history. The town--which once belonged to the mightiest of Burmese small kingdoms--serves as a good base for trekking the surrounding hills dotted with ancient pagodas. Walk the dusty roads and observe locals working on rice fields and banana plantations. Take a dip in a hot water spring or a natural pool below a waterfall, or visit a Shan village and palace that was home to the last prince of Hsipaw, overthrown by the 1962 military coup.

  • Hsipaw was chosen as the terminus of the trip by train from Pyin U Lwin. The situation is however suitable for trekking. It's a pity that I myself already had set, to travel the next day via Lashio to Kalaw. Definitely worth to stay longer.

  • We have beautiful walks with a Shan/Bimees/English speaking guide through the rice and corn-fields, along a Monastry and a Nunnery, where we could and with the monks and nuns could talk. Also we walked along the mausoleum (1895) of a Shan King. Further magnificent views and a lot of and various vegetable and fruit trees. Also, we are to a Palaung village. Where we have a very tasty lunch eaten at home (and not become ill). Do have good walking shoes on because when it starts raining it is very lack grip. Also, rain poncho. We are about 8 hours a day on the road/on the run/on a boat. If you are in the area you should really do a trekking.
