Mount Zwegabin is located about half an hour by moped from Hpa-An. 722 meters above sea level, it towers over the otherwise flat landscape in the overwhelming karst formations of the Karen region. On the summit is the monastery of the same name and a pagoda that is definitely worth a visit..
It is best to start before sunrise so that you can welcome the sun after a two to two and a half hour ascent and avoid the heat of the day.
At the entrance of the mountain is the Lumbini Park with over a thousand Buddha figures, all symmetrically arranged on the area | Myanmar
With due differences, this Zwegabin mountain resembles the hills in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
