Bath Cave Hpa An May 22, 2017
Bat Cave in Hpa An is a home of some 300000 bats that come out every sunset to feed. There are so many of them that they look like animated wind tunnel experiment… You know, the one when there is a new car and they are blowing smoke to see the aerodynamics… The cave is short distance from Hpa-An, over the bridge. Tuk Tuk drivers will take you there for cheap and you’ll need to pay entrance fee to some monks. Entering the cave is not aloud and it has a door. Locals are extracting the guano (bat shit) which is very profitable for them and they don’t want anyone to mess with it. Bats fly from the upper opening. Nicest area to sit and observe is around small pagodas on the second platform. Locals bang some containers so that bats change direction of the flight. The sight is incredible. Bunch of birds of prey show up few minutes before the bats come out and they have all you can eat buffet.
