MORE foreigners are showing interest in travel to Phankaw Waterfall, also mown as Chaukhtet waterfall, located in Lashio Township in northern Shan State, according to tour operators.
The waterfall has received more interest not only from foreigners but also from local visitors since it became a travel destination beginning late last year.
Local tour operators estimate that the numbers of visitors are likely to increase during the Thingyan Festival (water festival), which falls typically in April, prior to the Myanmar New Year Day.
During these days, especially on weekends, residents, students, visitors from other towns and international tourists flock to the waterfall.
Located about nine miles from Lashio, visitors to the waterfall has steadily increased, but transportation to the area is still difficult because of the poor condition of the roads that lead to the site. Visitors usually go through Konnyaung and Panhome villages.
Another popular time is Chinese New Year, when the natural waterfall becomes packed with visitors, said Daw Garbouk, a local seller.
Khay Ma Yiz, a university student, said; “I visit the waterfall with friends of mine with the help of local guide, planning to come to the natural area again on holidays as we like to see amazing natural environment here.”
