The countryside around Hpa An is surrounded by limestone karst mountains where the riverwater has carved stunning caves. Sadan Cave is the most famous cave in this region with impressive stalactite and stalagmite structures. The gorgeous Lake of Elephant Kind is located at the exit of Sadan Cave where travellers can enjoy a boat ride.
Hpa An also has magnificent pagodas all around. The most stunning is Kyat Ka Latt Pagoda (pronounced as Chocolate Pagoda) which is perched on top of a rock formation in the midst of a lake. You can also climb up the Taung Wine Pagoda on the top of the mountain for a view from above. Hpa An has several gardens, the most famous of which is Lumbini Buddha Garden. Down the road from this garden stands an area with hundreds of sitting statues of Buddha all around.
