The hotel manager helped us arranged taxi to go Pindaya Cave, Taunggyi & Htan San cave. The taxi fare was 70000 Kyats for the entire trip (as of 2011 Sept). I think it was very reasonable fare because It was a whole day trip and each place is very far from each other. For example, the actual route is like this Htan San cave -> Taungyi -> Nyaung Shwe-> Pindaya Cave. Our itinerary of the day is as follow :
- Check-out from hotel at Nyaung Shwe and visit Pindaya Cave
- Go to Taungyi for Lunch & check-in Baggage at hotel
- Visit Htan San cave (about 2 hours drive from Taungyi) & drive back to Taungyi for overnight stay.
As can see in my itinerary, we were traveling in one circle.
Before we drove to Pindaya, we had Shan breakfast at Nyaung Shwe Town.

The scenery on the way to Pindaya is simply breathtaking. I should have asked the drive to stop for a few times for Landscape photo opportunities. However, our itinerary of the days was quite packed so I didn't want to waste his time. Therefore, all the photos were taken from the car with sport mode. Even though some of the photos are blurry I still want to share as a memory of the trip.
