Photographer's Note

As there are not so many photos of Kakku on TE, I'm selecting a few to post. This is just part of the view we have when we reach the site. There are hundreds of stupas like these ones. Many of them are being restored, like it happens in Bagan. Maybe not always in the best way, but they are. In some parts of the site, there are already trees and bushes covering the stupas.
Situated in the mountains, a few kilometres far from Taunggyi, in the Shan State, Kakku was recently open to Tourism and it soon became an important attraction in the region.It's a very ancient religious site, also visited by the Pa-O people, whose villages are situated in the surroundings. This area is under administration of the Special Region 6. It's a Pa-O territory and we needed a Pa-O guide to get there.
