Why Khaung Daing Village is special ?

Khaung Daing, the native village on the northwestern shore of the Inlay Lake in Shan State. Just because you have been on a boat doesn't mean you have 'done' Inle Lake. Khaung Daing Village is an easy and worthwhile way to experience it. It is known for its production of soybean cakes and noodles. The attractions are admittedly low-key, and the real reason to come here is the bike ride through some beautiful Burmese countryside. There are some interesting Shan style temples just outside the village. A little north of Khaung Daing is the Khaung Daing Hot Spring.

What to explore at Khaung Daing Village?

The first place you'll reach is Khaung Daing hot springs, to where hot water from the natural springs has been channelled into a swimming pool and a series of private bathhouses for men and women. The springs are also the start or end point of several trekking routes between Kalaw and Inle Lake.

As you approach Khaung Daing, the road is seemingly lined with gold and whitewashed stupas, some perched on the tall hills to the west of the lake. Perhaps the most interesting is Phwar Ya Thay Paya, located roughly behind Pristine Lotus. The name means 'Lady Monk', and refers to the temple's lone female resident. Many stairs lead to the top here, and the temple offers amazing views over the lake and countryside.

Continuing south, after a few minutes you'll reach Khaung Daing, a quiet Intha village known for its tofu, prepared using split yellow peas instead of soybeans. There are some basic restaurants and tea shops here.

Just past Khaung Daing, turn left into the gateway that leads to Hu Pin Inle Khaung Daing Village Resort. The road here ends in yet another hilltop temple with intermittent views of the lake.

How to get to Khaung Daing Village?

Khaung Daing village can be reached by car directly from Taunggyi (capital of Shan State, 2 hour drive), from Nyaungshwe by car (one and half hour drive) or bicycle.

If you rent a bicycle from Nayaungwe, the ride around the northern top of the lake takes you about 45 minutes. Just cross the bridge at the western end of Nyaungshwe and follow the main road up the hill, turn left at the junction and just follow the street for quite a while until you see the hot springs are on the left hand side.

Besides, you can access to hot springs by a boat ride from Nyaungshwe. The boat trip from Nyaungshwe may be a better and smother choice for tourists who don’t like trekking.
