Saddan Cave Kayin
ဆဒၵန္ဂူ Sadan Cave Kayin
This football-stadium-sized cave is simply breathtaking, its entrance dominated by dozens of buddha statues, a couple of pagodas and some newer clay wall carvings.
In absolute darkness (bring a torch; otherwise, for a donation of K3000 they’ll turn on the lights for you), you can scramble for 15 minutes through chambers as high as a cathedral, past truck-sized stalactites and, in places, walls of crystal. Adding to the general atmosphere, thousands of bats cling to the cave roof. Their squealing is deafening in places – and watch out for bat excrement.
