Yangon - Kyaikhtiyo - Golden Rock
08.30AM, The Golden Rock tour begins when you see the tour guide at your hotel in the morning. After that, a 5-hour driving will lead you from Yangon to Kyaiktiyo via Burmese countryside filled up with green rice paddy fields.
The most delightful of this day is the Golden Rock in Kyaiktiyo Pagoda (or Golden Rock Pagoda), en route. Arriving at the base camp of Kin Pun, we continue by joining the public track on the path to the famous Golden Rock, a familiar image in any Myanmar travel guide. Then enjoy a light trek to the summit to be overwhelmed by the charming sunset.
NOTE: The local trucks from Kinpun camp to the top will be very crowded and uncomfortable. Locals are also known to tag along. The trucks won’t leave until they are stocked with passengers; we kindly ask for your patience. Please note that you need to reach Kinpun at 5.30 PM at the latest to be sure to get a truck to the top.
Being particular by precarious position, the famous Golden Rock covered by gold leaf is an important site of Buddhist pilgrimage as well as an important symbol of Myanmar culture and religion. You can ask your experienced guide to understand more about origin of this site. If lucky, you can see the traditional activities of pilgrimage season here. Explore about the pagoda and then drive back to guesthouse for overnight and finish the today’s journey from Yangon to Golden Rock here.
Afterward, we move back to your hotel at the foot of the mountain.
Kyaikhtiyo – Bago – Yangon
In the morning, follow the route to Bago via rice fields and small towns and then we will arrive at this former Mon Kingdom, which was founded in 15th century.
Arriving in Bago, we begin the exploration to some highlights of Bago like Buddha’s teachings with the monks of Kyakhatwaing first. Then we continue the visit to the well-known Shwemawdaw Pagoda, the highest pagoda in Myanmar.
After that, we should not miss the chance to visit the historic palace site of Kanbawzathadi Palace before discovering Shwethalyaung Reclining Buddha.
