Located in Southern Shan State near Inle Lake, the Kakku Pagoda Festival is a three-day yearly harvest celebration in February or March and pays homage to the thousands of pagodas nestled on a hill overlooking the Hopon Valley. During the festival, a market selling all sorts of produce, games, and crafts is set up, and the Pa’O tribe that lives in the hills near the pagodas perform ancient traditional song and dance. This festival provides travelers with a look into Myanmar’s centuries-old traditions. If you would like to participate authentically, take note that the villagers visit the pagodas on the full-moon day at dawn.
