Kakku

Inle Lake environs Sagar Kakku Pindaya Kalaw Taunggyi
About 50-km south of Taunggyi, along the highly scenic road , passing through colorful farms of garlic, onion, potatoes, mustard, cabbage, taro, and sesame, there lies Kakku, the jewel of Pa O tribe where over 2000 of 16th century pagoda ruins in one small area like Amazon forest of pagodas. The stupas are decorated with stucco figures like mythical animals, celestial beings, and floral patterns. Some of the monuments are well-preserved while some have overgrown with trees and shrubs, adding more intriguing accent. Since the pagoda complex is located deep inside the Pa O territory, it is required to take an escort through PNO office in Taunggyi. Kakku is best visited as a day excursion from Inle Lake or from Kalaw to Kakku via Taunggyi then overnight in Inle Lake.
