History


Description

ဒီးဒုတ်ရေပြာအိုင် (Deedote Blue Lagoon) is a rather new bathing spot. The valley has numerous rapids, and it seems there is a limestone rich karst spring. The result is a bright blue color of the water and the formation of rimstone pools. One huge rimstone pool was developed by a trail and handrails and is now open for bathing.

The place is often dubbed Dee Dote Waterfall, it seems any bathing spot is automatically a waterfall in Myanmar. There are several rapids, and three of those rimstone pools, but there is definitely nothing resembling a waterfall. The bathing pool is the lowest of the three, which is reached first coming from the parking lot. There are wooden trails and hut for vendors, but there is no entrance fee or open hours. The place is mostly populated by Myanmar people, it is yet not well known among foreign tourists.
