Kya Hnyat is a village of thatched-roof huts over 700 miles up Irrawaddy River in Myanmar. Here tourists can interact with the monks at the local monastery. Each morning they put on their saffron-coloured robes and walk through the streets of Kya Hnyat to collect alms, offerings of food, such as cooked rice and curry.
Reaching the town proper by boat requires crossing a narrow metal walkway to the sandbar, then walking across the beach, and boarding local boats in order to cross another narrow rivulet. Then passengers have to climb a long set of stone steps up to Kya Hnyat village. Walk through the market and stop by the school where the children, in accordance with the state-approved teaching methods, are shouting lessons in unison like robots. Visit the small private museum of Pyu-era artifacts, though the government has pilfered most of the best pieces for display in Yangon's National Museum. Your tour may end at the Buddhist monastery where the head monk provides school lessons for around 20 kids from outlying villages.
