Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing yesterday morning inspected the conservation of the National Kandawgyi Garden in PyinOoLwin.
Officials reported on the inflow of water to the lake from the inlets due to renovation in accord with the guidance of the Senior General, test growing of domestic flowery plant species in the research centre, regular sanitation tasks at the inlet channels of water to the National Kandawgyi Garden and public relaxation during the Thingyan period and flower festivals.
After hearing the reports, the Senior General stressed the need to conduct research on flowery plants thriving all season round. It is necessary to systematically do research on the better blossoming of cherry. Only when the environment is lush and green will people take relaxing. Officials were urged to maintain the inflow of water to the Kandawgyi Lake and instructed to develop PyinOoLwin.
The Senior General viewed round the National Kandawgyi Garden and cordially greeted the people who took relaxing.
The Senior General instructed officials to keep trash bins for systematic disposing in the garden not to throw garbage into the lake, grow cheery plants in the National Kandawgyi Garden in addition to other shade plants.
As the inflow of water volume to the lake is lesser, the water courses are maintained in accordance with the guidance of the Senior General. So, an inflow of water to the lake turns into normalcy. During this Maha Thingyan festival, 24,950 people paid visits to the garden but 317,115 in the flower festival in 2022.
Then, the Senior General and party rode Sky Cable Car built in Pwekauk Waterfall resort (BE Falls). The Senior General and party viewed the skill demonstration of elephants in the BE Falls and fed them. After inspecting the pumping at the flowery patches by using solar power, the Senior General cordially greeted the people who took relaxing.
Pwekauk Waterfall faced ecological degradation due to undisciplined acts of shops, disposing of and cutting trees. In accord with the guidance of the Senior General, the waterfall was renovated. As the fall uses natural clean water, visitors can enjoy water healthily. The first-ever glass bridge was built there for the visitors to enjoy the scenes under the bridge. Flower festivals will be held there annually. The area is facilitated with a glass bridge, suspension bridge, log house, coffee shop, jungle trekking paths, relaxation areas and playgrounds. Now, the 554 metres long Sky Cable Way has been built for travellers to ride sky cable cars so as to enjoy natural scenes. During the Maha Thingyan festival period, local and international travellers paid visits to the Pwekauk (BE Falls). — MNA/TTA
