This ten cabin K class was completed in 2016 and is currently serving as the Pandaw Academy training ship at Pagan. Like so many of our K class ships the Kha Byoo was named after the Denny built ship launched in 1882 and sunk in 1925. In the year of her launch under a Captain Clasin she was trapped in a whirlpool in the Middle Defile and went round and round for three days and three nights. During this time Captain Clasin’s hair turned completely white. We take on interns from amongst the local villages and offer training in hotel skills.

The ship has quality mountain bikes for your independent exploration.
