Dee Dote Waterfall in Mandalay is so beautiful waterfall and pool, and you can swim at there. This waterfalll is dammed up and made. The pool is not big, but the color is light blue and the water is clean. There is no bus to go to Dee Dote Waterfall, so you need to hire a motorbike taxi or rental motorbike. It is hard to go to the waterfall, so if you have a time, you should go to there. And the waterfall is located in the mountain, so you have to take a walk in the mountain for 30 mins from the parking pool and entrance.
How to get to Dee Dote Waterfall
There is no bus to go to the Dee Dote waterfall, so you have to hire a taxi or rental motorbike.. It is hard to go to there, so if you go to there by a bike taxi, please hire whole day, because you cannot go back to Mandalay town and your hotel.
Taking a time from Mandalay to the entrance of Dee Dote Waterfall is around 1 hour., and there is an advertisement at the entrance of the road. Please turn left, then there areb some shops and parking area. The parking fee is 500kya, but normally in Myanmar, parking fee is 300kya. so it is expensive. It might be foreignner fee.
From the entrance to the Waterfall is around 30 mins by walikng. It is free to take a waterfall, but there is no dressing room. It is convenient to change the clothes by having a Rongyi, which is a Myanmar clothes. In weekday, almost nobody stays at the waterfall, so men can swim wearing a underwear. haha. Ordinaly, Myanmar people swim with clothes.
|The direction is toward Pyin Oo Lwin. You turn right at a corner which a foot of mountain of Pyin Oo Lwin is.|
There is an amusement park of the water pool on the way, so please go through it. There is a waterfall entrance 7 to 8 kilometers from this amusement park.
This is the entrance.
There is a sign of the waterfall, so please do not miss it.
This is parking pool and stop the motorcycle here, and you will climb to the waterfall. I paid 500 kya as the parking fee. but Myanmar’s price is 300 kyat. Foreigner charges, or it may have been dropped.
Please go straight along the mountain road. there is a sighn of the waterfall.
|I swam at the pool. The water is clean, but I didn’t open my eyes in the water. The water temperature was not low. It is good temperature. The color is blue and white that I think that lime has been melted in the water. Myanmar boys were swimming not wearing swim suits, just underware, b ecause no woman in the pool. Ha-ha. I took a swimsuit, but I swam just underwear. I think that it is good to head towards Inn Wa, and Sagaing after Dee Dote Waterfall.|
