AKAUK HILL or AKAUK TAUNG (DAY TRIP)

Akauk Taung which is ‘mountain” in Myanmar is also another option of unique site in Pyay. Akauk hill is located in the southwest of on the western banks of Ayeyarwady. One need to drive first to Htone Bo village on a bumpy road and continue on Ayeyarwady river by rented boat for about 45 minutes . Beautiful carving of Buddha in various postures can be witnessed by floating along the mountain side on the boat in Ayeyarwaddy River. Those Buddha images were carved on the river banks by boat men who stay there overnight during their journey. The boat ride on the Ayeyarwady itself is a pleasant trip where one can see the daily life of the people staying around the river.
