In the foothills of the Himalayas in northern Putao situate Mt. Khkakabo Razi, the highest snow-capped mountain in South East Asia. Towering at 19361 ft, 5889 meter is a very important watershed area for the eastern Ayeyarwady river (Nmaihka). Locally known as Ahtanbum meaning mysterious Sprit abode, thus no one dare venture it in centuries. The flagship trek of the area lies more than 440 kilometers away from nearest airstrip which takes nearly 6 weeks to complete. Like the main Himalayas, these mountains are heavily affected by the monsoon. Khkakabo Razi is certainly not a walkup. Huge cliffs, hanging glaciers with large crevasses, and corniches, makes it a mountain not to be toyed with. The approach to the mountain is a major obstacle: Streams have to cross over instable bridges, over huge gorges. For the most part, journeys are made on foot along footpaths that hug the mountainsides and wind through dense jungle undergrowth. This is a place of pristine beauty, exotic cultures and some of the most radical topography on earth.Kha Yon Cave is situated by the road en route from Mawlamyaing to Hpa An.

Shwe Oo Min Paya
hwe Oo Min Pagoda is nestled not at the mouth of a cave, but within it. While one would think that with space being somewhat limited within a cave, there would be some reservation as to how many statues should be put inside. However, enthusiasm prevailed, and the cavern walls and passages of Shwe Oo Min are covered by row after row of golden Buddha statues. What is particularly fascinating is that the limestone cave complex that houses Shwe Oo Min is entirely natural, with very little engineering being done to widen or modify the passages beyond what is required for safety and lighting. The best time to visit the cave pagoda is during the early part of March, when pilgrims and casual visitors alike flock to it for its annual festival. The base of the hill that the complex sits within becomes covered in small tents and stalls selling everything from food to cheroots (the Southeast Asian equivalent of a cigar).
