I did not expect so many different cave chambers! The walking path goes on and on from one to the next, with interesting lighting displays and many diverse grottos with different style Buddha images and mini pagodas and fake trees

Amazing trip outside the town. Holy place for buddhist people. Caves full of Buddha statues. We haven't met one foreigner, only local excluded us. Higly recommended

If you are a tourist, you don't want to go to a water fall like this. It is just mediocre.
There are far more beautiful waterfalls. A bit far tho.
Plus, the cave at this places is full with Buddha statues.

On our second day in Pwyin Oo Lwin, we went to Peik Chin Myaung Cave, a popular attraction near Pyin Oo Lwin. There is a waterfall at the entrance of the cave, and inside the cave are Buddhas, of course, so as with any pagoda or sacred area, you must take off your shoes. However, you don’t just take off your shoes when entering the cave, oh no, that would be logical; you must take off your shoes while down below in the village, leave them in an unsecured cubicle, and walk through dirt and mud to the cave – it’s nature, and there isn’t a clean, paved pathway up to the cave, despite the requirement to take off your shoes.

While I was interested in seeing the cave, I did not want to do a HIKE in bare feet, so I decided to remain below in the village and look around and relax. Perhaps I missed out on something really cool (the photos people posted are really neat), but the idea of hiking through dirt and mud in bare feet is absolutely ridiculous (plus it’s not like I desperately wanted to see another Buddha), which is why I am only giving it two stars. While I waited for my mom to take a look at the cave, I relaxed, looked around the village and food stalls, saw some waterfalls, and wrote TripAdvisor reviews.

Good for adult but not so suitable for young kids to go into deep cave channel.
The time our family went into the cave, we have 3 kids to handle so we decide not to go in further.
We just went into the first view of the cave only. Wasted but no choice coz do not want to take risk with kids.
It's is safe to go into the cave. Only you need to remove shoes, slippers & scandals due to religious place.

Originally, this cave was awesome but Burmese Military and idiots has spoiled this beautiful natural cave.If they found out the cave they put the statute inside and if people can travel to mountain ,they build the pagoda up of there.

The entrance of the Peik Chin Myaung cave is about 20 ft wide and 1,600 ft long. The long cave is filled with so many Buddha images and pagodas in various sizes and position at every corners and niches and can hear the stream flow sound along side of the cave.

Even outside is hot ,inside of the cave is very cool and calm to be walked and can get the fresh air .

Shoes do not allowed in the cave. Inside the cave may attractive to foreigner.The cave is pretty long and filled with shrines and Buddha statues .

At Peik Chin Myaung Cave ,authority notice to seller are not allowed at the cave by displaying with the Red Board,but it is inactive .

We really enjoyed our trip to these caves, the statues inside are wonderful! It is about a 15-20 min walk in and then you double back on yourself to come out.
As it was a holiday day both inside and outside the cave was very busy and full of people enjoying themselves and having a fantastic time! It was lovely to see.
There are thousands of statues in the canes and towards the end of the walk there are 4 huge standing buddhas which are amazing.

This cave is not in Pyin Oo Lwin but it only takes about half an hour with a car to get there. I would recommend you to visit this place as going to Pyin Oo Lwin itself is already a full day trip. There’s nothing much to do in the town apart from visiting Catholic churches, the botanical garden and the old colonial houses. Those places will take at most 3 or 4 hours. You can visit those places in the morning, have lunch and then go to this cave. It’s actually a cave with running water. It’s a place very popular with the locals too. There’s a waterfall that comes out of the cave. It takes about 40 minutes to explore the cave so if you have respiratory problems, I would suggest you not to go in as it can be crowded sometimes and the cave is humid.

Suggested Itinerary for a full day trip :

8:30 am - 9:30 : depart for Pyin Oo Lwin. It takes an hour at most to get there from Mandalay.

9:30 - 11:30 : visit botanical garden. It’s a beautiful place worth visiting. If you happen to visit the place in winter, there is a flower festival and there are more flowers on display.

11:30 - 12:30 : lunch

12:30 - 2:30 : wander around the town and visit churches and colonial houses.

2:20 - 5:00 : visit Peik Chin Myaung Cave.

5:00 - 6:00 : back to Mandalay.

I hope you find this helpful.

This is 3rd time I visited here after several months ago. We visited on Friday which is drab raining day. It's fantastic bcos I didn't expected as I encountered a noise and dirty place on my last visits. Now things are change to better and improved a lot.
Since religion is serious and devoted in Burmese culture, they build a lot of pagodas and Buddha statue in the cave which destroys nature exists. So if you're expecting to see the nature, you will see the religious things instead. Nevertheless, it's worth to visit and pu can buy souvenir from local seller shops just outside from the cave. It's so far from Maymyo and just 15 mins driving distance. On the way, you can enjoy your meal at December garden.
