Pyin Oo Lwin - originally a Shan-Danu village, translated as ‘The City of May” – is a beautiful highland of flowers. It can be as much as 10º cooler than nearby central plains and this climate is perfect for the growing of European flowers, fruits, and vegetable year-round. The fresh beautiful flowers, stunning mountain vistas, and colonial era buildings make Pyin Oo Lwin one of the most picturesque towns in Myanmar. That’s why in the late 19th century, it became a hill station for the European civil servants stationed in Mandalay to use during the hottest months, from March through May and there are still a number of Edwardian style cottages still standing. Pyin Oo Lwin offers visitors cooler days and nights, rustic but charming rural paths and spectacular routes and tracks for a variety of adventure and outdoor activities such as cycling, trekking through the abundant fruit and flower producing countryside. Visitors can encounter such huge and powerful waterfalls nestled in a rugged gorge and framed at the base by Buddhist temples Pyin Oo Lwin is really refreshing destination for you to Upper Myanmar!
