SinYwa Waterfall, a prominent rainy-season destination in Paung Township in Mon State, has been receiving tens of thousands of visitors during the holidays, according to an official from the Aung Nawarat Social Association.
Locals usually go to the waterfall every day to bathe and swim, but now they have to avoid going there on holidays, including weekends since this place is crowded with other visitors from Mawlamyine, Kyaikkhami, Setse, Mudon, Hpa-an and Thaton, he said.
“As the waterfall is magnificent during the rainy season, many travellers come here. Even tens of thousands of visitors from other places come on some holidays. It is very crowded at the waterfall. Locals usually go daily to the waterfall to bathe and swim. But they seldom go there on holidays as it is always crowded with guests,” he said.
It is located in Sinywa village, a four-mile drive from the Natkyichaung village, which is eight to nine miles from Zinkyaik through the Natkyichaung market street. Since it has water only in the rainy season, most visitors come from May to October.
“The water falls from a very high mountain in the middle. There are layers of rock underneath. There is a pagoda at the top. Parking fees at the Sinywa Waterfall are K1,000 for a motorcycle and K1,500 for a car,” he added.
There are lesser-known waterfalls in Mon State, while the Zinkyaik, Sinywa, and Tamaungpan waterfalls receive many visitors. Travellers come on motorcycles, and in cars, light trucks, and three-wheeler taxis, and this destination creates income opportunities for residents as they sell food to many visitors. — MT/ZN
