Hpa An also called Pa-An) is the capital of Kayin State, Myanmar.
The view is breathtaking, and so is the climb up the mountain. First, you need to grab a longtail boat to cross the Thanlwin River (500 kyats, or ≈ 56¢, per person for the 10-minute ride). Take a short walk to the mountain through a small village, skirt the bottom of the mountain until you see stairs and an archway, and begin your ascent.
The great thing about the mountain’s location is it is directly across from Hpa-an, so the view is that of the river and the town.
