The Pwekauk Waterfall Resort (BE Fall) is located near Pwekauk village, between the Mandalay-Lashio railway road and the highway road. It is originated from the construction of a resort to commemorate the training engineer battalion who suppressed the insurgents who occupied PyinOoLwin in 1949 at the site of what is now BE Fall. It used to have no systematic layout, increasing number of shops, unregulated dumping and deforestation which all caused environmental and ecological damage. Therefore, the upgrade was carried out under the guidelines of the Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister during his visit.
Due to the use of natural water purification systems in the waterfall, those who want to play in the water can play clean and healthy water. There are three waterfalls in the resort, and the first LED glass bridge in Myanmar has been built with world-class standards, and the scenery under the bridge can be very exciting. As PyinOoLwin is a flower and tourist city, a variety of flowers are grown and annual flower festivals will be held. It has been upgraded to entertain visitors, with cable-stayed bridges, log houses, coffee shops, jungle trails, recreation areas, children’s playgrounds, and it is reported that detailed arrangements have been made for security and relief efforts. — MNA
