Description

Hpa-An is the small town capital of Karen State, east of Yangon. The area is picturesque, with dramatic karst formations jutting out of the jungle landscape and a seemingly endless supply of new routes to go up. The climbing scene here is still developing with only one area containing sport routes

Once in Hpa-An there are a couple of hostel options with Soe Brothers most likely being the cheapest. Also check out Galaxy Hotel and Golden Sky Guesthouse.

For transportation you can easily arrange to rent a motorbike or truck through your guesthouse.

Make sure to bring mosquito spray and coils, especially if climbing during rainy season.
Keeping climbs open depends on maintaining good relationships with locals and monks. Details

Getting There

From Yangon buy a bus ticket at a travel agency or at Aung San Stadium. Busses leave in the afternoon or at night and take 6-7 hours to arrive in Hpa-An.
