What to visit around Ywar Ngan ? 01- Mya Tha-Bait Blue Lake Named after its particular colour and shape, which locals believe closely resemble a special alms bowl used to make offerings to Boddha, the Mya Tha-bait lake is about 15 mile from Ywar Ngan in Taw Gyae village The lake is quite small but is blessed with glorious, clear blue water; you can even see fish darting in and out of the plants and fallen tree limbs underwater. Locals believe the water also contains lucrative properties but this is likely a myth. 02-Alawe Chaung water fall Not far from Taw Gyae village and its blue lake, is the of Alawe Chaung waterfall, which flows for about three quarters of the year. The cool water cascades across serveral tiers as they make their way down the hillside, making for a beautiful spot to sit down and enjoy what mother nature offers or jump into the water to cool off. 03-Mainmayaw Thakinma Taung About 20 miles toward Aung Ban from Ywa Ngan, lies a peculiarly-coloured hill that villagers have called Mainmayaw Thakinma hill. The hill takes its colour from its stone core and rises steeply off the surrounding area. In fact, the path to the summit is so steep that a steel rail has been installed to help people climb the 200-odd steps.According to local legend, a king once wandered far from his kingdom and eventually arrived at the hill and tried to marry a girl from a near by village, asking her to be his queen. The girl refused the king and tried to hide at the hill but when his guards attempted to bring her back, she committed suicide by jumping to her death. The translation of the hill’s name, therefore, is ” brave girl” hill. Pepole also believe that after her death, the brave girl became a nat spirit and protects the hill . 04- Pyadarlin cave complex With the surrounding area rich in limestone, it should come as no surprise that caves can also be found not far from Ywa Ngan.

But you can also drive the road directly from Ywa Ngan. There are two main caves at Pyadarlin, one measuring 80 feet in length, 20 feet in width and with a 14-foot-hight ceiling. The second cave is much larger, with five chambers reaching out about 800 feet. The biggest cave is 300 feet wide and about 90 feet high.The first cave bears evidence of human occupation from thousands of years ago, including charcoal that was dated to between 7740 and 6570 years ago. The cave also includes paintings of human hands, centipedes, elephants, fish, bulls, bison, deer and other two unknown objects. The paintings found in Pyadarlin are considered to be similar to those found in world famous Lascaux and Sonsquer caves in Spain.
