Photographer's Note

Somehow, this is my first post of an incredible place I've visited in Myanmar: Kakku - a complex made of hundreds of stuppas, as the ones in the photo.Unfortunately, the weather was not that good and some minutes later it started raining - it was still the monsoon.
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.
