Pyin Oo Lwin, Dat Taw Gyaik (or) Anisakan Waterfall(ဓါတ္ေတာ္ခ်ိဳင့္ ေရတံခြန္) #2

 I think this waterfall is the most beautiful in Pyin Oo Lwin and well worth your effort of a long and exhausting journey. I slipped 2 times while walking near the fall. Luckily my camera was safe. I am not happy with the photos I got from that day. It is not impressive compare to others' photos available in "Flickr". It is also depend on what time of the year you go. Usually, around Nov to Feb will be the best time for photo taking when the water amount is not that strong and it doesn't splash too much.

 Even thought I didn't go near the water, I was wet including my camera. Last time I used to go quite close to the fall but this time my camera didn't allow me.

 Despite the safety warning, visitors still swim near the waterfall.

 Another fall opposite side of the Giant fall.

 This guy standing quite a distance from the fall but still not safe to take photo. :( Droplets  are all over my lens. 

  only spent about 30 minutes and headed back to car park. I had to move quick because there are a lot thing to visit in Pyin Oo Lwin. It was a very exhausting return and took about 1 hour. Time to buy drinks from the villagers.

 The villager (Guide) on that day were quite young and friendly. We chatted non-shop. :)

 Finally, we reached near the car park and time to calculate how much drinks I bought from them. It was about 5 or 6 cans of Local brand Sprike and Orange Juice and the total bill  is 9000 kyats. "Don't shock!! It is normal."  It is about 3x expensive than the actual price but you have to consider the effort they put . I paid them 11000 Kyats and asked them to keep the change.
