Full description
Benefit from pickup at your hotel in Yangon, and then get panoramic views on the 190-kilometer drive to the pilgrimage site of Kyaiktiyo Pagoda. Along the way, see the Taukkyan War Cemetery for Allied soldiers of the British Commonwealth who died in battle in Burma during World War II. Stop for a tea break in Bago, and then continue towards the Golden Rock where the pagoda temple is perched. Get some time for lunch at a local restaurant at your own expense, and then continue to Kin Pun base camp to travel by public truck to the mountain top. Learn the history and legends of the sanctuary as you gaze in wonder at the gravity-defying monument that sits on a granite boulder covered with gold leaves pasted on by male devotees. Take in the stunning views of the surrounding mountains and lush landscape before the return journey to Yangon.

It is expensive but worth it. It is cheap if you go with two or more people.
