Home Kak-ku


Kak-Ku is located on the borderline of Shan and Pa-O region and is managed by a Pa-O collective. The land route from Inlay lake (Nyaung Shwe) to Kakku is 144 Km (three hours drive), and most part of the road is well paved and tarred. There is a railway line between Taungyi and Kakku constructed by the government in 1996 but foreigners aren't allowed to take public transport to the site.

Over two thousand Stupas not higher than 3m to 4m, in various shapes and descriptions are spread within Kakku Pagoda Complex and are the main attraction of the place.

However, the beautiful landscape surrounding the pagodas and the small winding roads leading to the complex permitting a close observation of the vegetation and cultivation practices are also of great interest. The final attraction is to observe the daily life of the Pa-o tribal and their culture, their villages lining up along the main road. More than 30'000 peoples live in and around that area.

 If you're reading this, you are sitting where we were a month ago, in the back of Tin Aung Soe's cab, reading his book of recommendations, and feeling sceptical. Perhaps you're like we were: first time in Myanmar, have only a short time to explore it, want some solid advice about where to go and ...
