In Pindaya you can arrange a trip to the Yatsakyi monastry; a hike for about 17 Km; starting at 1.300m to about 1.690m and it will take's two days- to get up and down.
On top the people are pleased to see you, as the monk - who is gaining some money from the tourist when they sleep in his monastry - is doing verry good things for the village.
For example, beside building up his monastry, he also has buildt up a school and is now building a hospital.
The people performed dances for us, and - course of christmas evening -they specialy send up a baloon.
It can be very cold up there,so take some warm clothing with you.
