Sagaing Region’s Directorate of Hotels and Tourism plans to develop the Saphogyi waterfall in Kani Township as a tourist destination to attract local and foreign travelers.
The waterfall is located at Saphogyi Village in the Maedin Village-tract of Kani Township, along the Monywa-Yargyi-Kalewa highway road.
Twinma Lake is within easy reach of the spot.
Sagaing Region’s Minister for Planning and Finance U Soe Oo, regional representatives, officials from the Directorate of Hotels and Tourism, and other concerned officials visited the waterfall to discuss the necessary arrangements to boost tourism, said U Aung Thu, the head of Sagaing Region’s Directorate of Hotels and Tourism.
“Located at a distance of 37 miles from Monywa, Saphogyi is the nearest waterfall from the township.
The Saphogyi waterfall is two miles from Maedin village in Kani Township. There is smooth transportation from Monywa to Kani Township. The Government is planning to ensure good road access first, and then, it plans to develop the Saphogyi waterfall as a leading resort.
Locals and visitors from nearby areas are currently visiting the waterfall,” he said.
The Sagaing Region Government and concerned officials will inspect transportation facilities for visitors, he added.—Ko Min (Indaw) (Translated by La Wonn)
