Mount Zwegabin - Hpa-An Myanmar
Mount Zwegabin is located near Hpa-An, Myanmar.
At 725m above sea level, it is one of South Myanmar's loved places. The temple and monastery on top are favorite pilgrimage sites, involving a good climb up numerous stairs, through beautiful scenery.
Visitors can sleep on top as well as enjoy good food in a local restaurant.
Myanmar Off The Beaten Path
After visiting all the touristic places in Myanmar it was time to venture off the beaten path to a town called Hpa An. We hired a Tuk Tuk and visited everything there is to see including a cave-temple full of bat poo in which we had to enter barefoot.

Myanmar Mon Village Bago:
The Mon of Myanmar generally live in the region southeast of Yangoon and in Mon and Kayin States along the coast. The Mon migrated from the northern territories into what is now known as Thailand and Myanmar (Burma), and established the first great civilization in that region. They pioneered wet rice farming, introduced the nationals to Buddhism, and gave them their alphabet. Between the fifth and eighth centuries, their kingdom was at its peak. However, in the centuries that followed, they were at constant war with the Burmese.
The Mon were finally defeated by the Burmese in 1757, and the time of their political independence ended. Today, most of the Mon are descendants of the fugitives who fled from the Burmese.
What are Their Lives Like?
The Mon live in village settlements from the last three or four hundred years. Their houses are similar to Thai homes, except that they are always situated east and west. They are rectangular, wood-framed houses raised above ground on poles. The walls and floors are made of woven bamboo mats, and the roofs are made of thatch. The wealthier Mon may live in homes with plank walls and floors. There is a verandah in front and a kitchen at the back of the house. A monastery is located in each village.
Most of the Mon are peasant farmers, although a few are merchants and craftsmen. The farmers generally raise fruits or vegetables. Irrigated rice is their principal crop, and it is grown for both consumption and trade. The wet rice farmers cultivate their fields with plows drawn by buffalo or oxen. Vegetables, sugar cane, and pineapples are grown in home gardens. Supplementary crafts for the men include carpentry and brick making; while the women engage in pottery, weaving, and basket-making. Some of the men have full-time jobs as blacksmiths.
Mon families are not particularly patrilineal (male-dominated), except when dealing with the house spirit. This deity is located in the home of the eldest living male of a lineage. The spirit's clothing and gear hang in a basket on the southeastern post of the house.
The Mon do not have formal weddings. Instead, when a boy and girl decide to marry, the boy's friends tell the girl's parents. The groom is allowed to move in with the bride and her family for up to three years. The couple then establishes their own separate household.
Physically, the Mon are taller and stronger than the Thai. Today, most dress like the Thai.
What are Their Beliefs?
Religion is very important to the Mon. A majority are ethnic religionists, practicing a mixture of spirit worship and Buddhism. The others are Theravada Buddhists. Those who are traditional animists believe that good and evil spirits inhabit non-living objects. Their beliefs have been partly influenced by Hinduism, where spirits known as tewatao are associated with trees and fields. Other spirits, such as ancestral spirits, spirits that cause illness, and spirits that have magical influence, are called kalok.
Buddhist monks act as mediators between villagers and the spirits. Other practitioners include shamans (priests or priestesses), doctors, astrologers, and witches. Witches often cause illnesses or spirit possession. The Buddhists believe that a sick person has an insufficient accumulation of merit, so offerings are made to the Buddha images on his behalf. To alleviate the illness, shamans (mostly women) put on spirit dances, at which time they usually become possessed by evil spirits. The doctor then seeks to exorcise the spirits by reciting chants.
Weaving of Lun Yar Kyaw, which is one of the Myanmar Traditional Fabrics. First of all, the white silk is dyed according to design and one's favourite colour. The dyed silk is made into yarn by using a small spindle and put into the wooden reel. These are used as a warp threads when weaving. Simultaneously, yarn of various colours is mixed and made in accord with design and the number of yarn one desires. These mixed yarn are also wound onto the small bamboo bobbin of the wooden shuttle casing for the desired amount. These are to use threads of the weft in weaving.
Explore Hpa-An, Myanmar
Have you explored Hpa-An, Myanmar?
Hpa-An is about 7 hours east of Yangon by bus.
There are many things to do in Hpa-An but the best thing to do is explore the caves. The best cave is Saddan cave, where you can see many statues of Buddha as well as bats and take a boat ride!
How do you get to these caves? You can rent a scooter for the day for about 8000 Kyat, which is about $8 CDN. It is well worth your money and time! Wake up early and go explore those caves!
Don't forget to go and explore the bat cave and watch millions of bats leave the cave for the night!
The street food at the local night market is incredible as well. You must try all of the delicious food. It all costs around 500 Kyat or about $.50 CDN.
The last, but maybe the first thing to do in Hpa-An is make friends with the locals and watch sunset by the lake!
Go explore Hpa-An today!
I hope you enjoy!

I had some footage of our trip to Myanmar filmed on my little Sony camera, i hope the quality doesn't put you off and you enjoy the next instalments of vlogs of us exploring Myanmar (sorry I don't say it right in the videos yet it does get batter)
Traveling Myanmar & Thailand
3 weeks, $5 a day for food, $10 a day for a place to sleep, months of savings spent, but a priceless one-of-a-kind experience. Life is short, and the world is wide... so go somewhere you haven't been before.
If you're interested in traveling to Myanmar and neighboring countries, consider $2-300 per week for expenses if budget traveling. The highlights of the trip, and the places I would recommend are listed here:
Old Bagan, Myanmar
Inle Lake, Myanmar
Chiang Rai, Thailand
Chiang Mai, Thailand
