Pyin Oo Lwin Cycling Guide

At more than 1070 metres above sea level, Pyin Oo Lwin is a popular hill station about 70 kilometres from Mandalay on the fringe of the Shan plateau. It is a former British colonial summer hill station and nowadays Pyin Oo Lwin is an ideal and refreshing destination for visitors to Upper Myanmar. Well known for its colonial-style houses with large compound and pine trees, eucalyptus and silver-oak abound in town. Delightfully cool and pleasant the whole year round, in sharp contrast to the rest of upper Myanmar. Most places of interest can be reached on foot, by bicycle or a horse card though Kandawgyi National Botaniacl Gardens, Pyin Oo Lwin market, Pwe Kauk Falls, Dat Daw Chaing waterfall, Paik Chinmyaung caves at Wet Wun (Wet Win) and the Pagoda of the Reluctant Buddha are best.
