The Peik Chin Myaung is a limestone stalactite cave locating on Lashio Road, 23 km from Pyin Oo Lwin. It is several hundred million years old. Its name means numerous Peik Chin growing here. The entrance is 20 feet wide and 1600 feet long; the corners and niches are covered with various Buddha images and pagodas in all sizes as well as positions.
Inside the cave, many underground streams flow from different directions. A large number of stalactites and others have formed due to water seeped and dropped from rocks and limestone. Some pilgrims pick up this water because they believe that it can cure skin-diseases and sore eyes. Outside, there is a three layer waterfall which a few people know, will take visitors a few minute to reach from the cave.
Swimming at the entrance of the cave is very fascinating to the local people and many pilgrims in Myanmar. More and morelocals from Pyin Oo Lwin open shops gradually with plenty of local products and souvenirs in order to serve visitors.
