Hlawga National Park - Yangon Myanmar

the Hlawga National Park is a wildlife park, a mini zoo and a buffer zone. The place was set up as an educational center for environment in 1982 and continues to attract many ecologists and nature lovers.


This national park was established with joint-funding by the UNDP and the Burmese government so as to preserve the flora and fauna of the region. It holds the catchment area of an old extension dam, Zokanabe Lake that was built in 1921-24 to support the larger Hlawga Lake which has been the source of water for Yangon since 1904.

Visitors can spot various species of deer along with rhesus monkey, pythons, jungle cats, lizards and pangolins.
