Shan State

The capital state of Shan is Taungyi City. The Shan State was founded during the Pagan Kingdom. The Shan people prefer calling their land as ‘Muang Tai’, and they fondly go by the names of Tai or Dai instead of Shan. The Thais mostly call them ‘Tai Yai’, or ‘big Thai’. The second largest ethnic residing in Shan is the Wa people. The mountainous landscape coupled with the Thanlwin River that flows through the state provides a breathtaking view of the state. Shan is also known to house many beautiful caves that tourists would not want to miss.

WONDROUS CAVES

Due to the mountainous topography, tourists can find some of the best caves in Myanmar in Shan state. Apart from admiring the formation of these caves, visitors can take in the view of diverse flora and fauna found in the surrounding area. Tourists also get to see magnificent limestone caves that take millions of years to form. The longest and deepest caves and archaeological caves can also be found in Shan State, making cave-exploring a compulsory activity for tourists. Taunggyi and Kalaw would be the best place for cave explorers to visit, as both places are known to have caves that date back to the Neolithic era.
