The most rewarding half-day trip out of Pyin Oo Lwin is to the Anisakan Falls, located amid densely forested hills 9km southwest of town. The easiest way to visit is to take a taxi from the roundabout on the edge of town. The walk from the car park to the base of Dat Taw Gyaik – the most impressive of the falls – takes 45 minutes, and it’s a fairly strenuous hour back. The falls are at their most spectacular in the rainy season.
