Day 3

Yangon – Htone Po – Pyay

Breakfast at hotel. Early morning, drive to the outskirts of Pyi and cross the new bridge over the Ayeyarwady River. Once across, drive south through pretty countryside to the small village of Htone Po, where you board a local boat to go a short way down the Ayeyarwady past the Cliffs of Htone Po. Hundreds of niches in the cliff face are filled with Buddha images of all shapes and sizes – many of them have been carved out of the rock face. Return to Pyay. In the afternoon, drive out of Pyay to visit the site of the ancient Pyu kingdom of Sri Ksetra (Thayekhittaya). Very little remains of what was once a great kingdom but extensive research suggests that some pagodas here date back to the beginning of the Christian era. First, visit the tiny Museum, which houses artefacts unearthed in Sri Ksetra. There are two huge conical stupas, Payagyi and Payama, close to the museum and it is nearly always possible to reach them because the road is sealed. Less accessible is Bawbawgyi Pagoda which has a cylindrical shape. Overnight in Pyay.
