  • Not just rail fans this unique building fascinates: almost 700 m long and more than 150 m above the valley floor, the steel bridge spans the Gotheik Gorge. Once, it was the highest railway bridge in Asia. Anyway, this train ride is very interesting, leads through the beautiful landscape of the Shan State. The serene pacing is time people on the fields at work to watch and to enjoy the passage through the vibrant villages to the one or the other speciality offered on the platforms during the stays in the stations. Time does not matter. Also it's good to learn. The upper class is large enough. The ticket from Hsipaw after Nawnghkio (four and a half hours drive) costs 1,700 kyats (about 1 EUR) - life insurance with 0.54 kyats included! By the way: drive it is barely faster. Because alone the crossing of Gotheik can take traffic up to 2 hours Gorge on many return for heavy trucks.
