Another sunset view from the top of a mountain in Myanmar. This time, from the top of Hpan Pu Mountain (across the river from Hpa-An). The view is breathtaking, and so is the climb up the mountain. For full details on how to get here, read my article. Just know, it requires a boat ride to and from Hpa-An, so make sure you budget enough time to get back for the last boat or you may get stuck on the wrong side of the river for the night. As you can see from the video, the sun sets quickly and ride back was nearly pitch black.
About Mike Shubbuck
Mike’s addiction to travel started early. His family would often take meandering summer vacations across the United States. These trips gave him an appreciation of his native land, but a thirst for exploration outside of it. Always up for an adventure, he has been talked into skydiving, hanging over Victoria Falls, and jumping off cliffs. Depending on whom you ask, maybe he was the one convincing others to join him. His perspective is usually framed with a lens and he shoots video and photographs religiously. Mike is a lover of all things, but the phrase, “What is your favorite country?” has a special place in his heart. He is co-author of Create Your Escape: A Practical Guide for Planning Long-Term Travel, which teaches other travelaholics how to prepare for long-term travel.
