Because hiking one mountain injured wasn’t enough we woke up at 3am to hike another ever bigger one – Mt Zwegabin. Yes I know… we are super smart and great at taking care of our bodies. We drove to the start point and started to walk up. And of course Mount Zwegabin also had stairs going all the way up. Luckily we brought the flash light from the hotel. When there were stairs there was lights as well but in parts where there was just rocks of course there were no lights! Haha.. such a great logic. We read online that you need around 2 hours or little less but we did it in 1.40 hours and we were going slow. The scooter accident among all else left me a scar or both hand palm (just like Jesus had) so of course there was the biggest joke that baby Jesus (me) is visiting the Buddha haha we had so much fun and jokes on that 😀

Just before the top we found a perfect spot to watch the sunrise. And this is the best tip I can give you watch the sunrise little under the top because the view is breath talking. At the top there is a pagoda – of course and you must take off your shoes. The top has a nice view as well but on the opposite side to the sunrise. The best part about this hike: it was only us and two German girls!! But when going down we saw quite a lot of people going up – mainly locals and a few tourist. It is really worth it going early. When coming down from the Mt Zwegabin we saw a whole “plantation” of Buddha statues! We also drove by a school and watched the kinds play and have fun before heading back to hotel for a shower.
We decided to take the rest of the day off and just enjoyed by the pool, tan and eat a lot of fruit plates and drink smoothies before the 14 hours night bus to Inle lake. Just before the bus we went to our favourite restaurant for dinner and we returned the scooter and had to pay 1,5€ for the damage from the accident (the right mirror was broken) haha 😀
