This small riverside town is as pretty as it can get. If you are a backpacker looking for some solitude, Hpa An is the place to be in. Located beside Thanlwin River, about 270 kilometres away from Yangon, Hpa An will mesmerise you with its caves and surrounding mountains.

The town is surrounded by stunning karst mountains rising from green undulating plains. The mountains have many caves that you can explore. The entire landscape is unique and outstandingly beautiful. Mount Zwegabin, a monolithic hill, is located about 16 kilometres away from the town and is great for enjoying some serious hiking.
