  • Overview

    From Bago/Yangon you travel to east across the Sittaung Bridge to Kyaiktiyo. Upon reaching Kinpun Base Camp after 2-hour drive, you will be transferred into open trucks for a spectacular ride up the Hermit Hill Base Camp. Make your own pilgrimage up to the mystical Golden Rock where the men apply gold leaves to the rock's surface. A 5.5-meter high pagoda, resting atop a huge gold-gilded boulder, precariously perched high on the edge of the hill will make you unbelievable!

    Itinerary

    Yangon - Kyaikhtiyo - Bago - Allied War Cemetery - Yangon
    Day 1: Yangon-Kyaiktiyo

    Leaving Yangon in the morning, enjoy a scenic journey by road to Kyaiktiyo, 190km to the east. One of Myanmar's great pilgrimage sites is the Golden Rock at Kyaiktiyo, a huge boulder covered by gold leaf and delicately balanced on the edge of a cliff. The pagoda at the Golden Rock is said to hold a hair of the Buddha. Late morning, arrive at Kyaiktiyo base camp and transfer to the transit junction with one of the small open trucks in a 1-hour ride. After lunch, start an easy one-hour walk up to the Golden Rock and enjoy sunset from this unforgettable site. Overnight in Kyaiktiyo.

    Day 2: Kyaiktiyo-Bago-Yangon (B)

    After breakfast, continue by road for 110km to Bago, an ancient capital dating back to the 6th century. Sightseeing in Bago includes the beautiful 55 meter long reclining Buddha called Shwethalyaung and the Mon style Shwemawdaw Pagoda, one of the most venerated in Myanmar. Its spire stands 114m high and is taller even than the Shwedagon Pagoda. Visit also the old Palace "Kamboza Thadi" and the huge 4 sitting Buddha's "Kyaikpun".

    Return by road to Yangon, visiting the Allied War Cemetery near Htaukkyan, the final resting place for over 27,000 allied soldiers, and also visit a local woven bamboo factory. Transfer back to Yangon at the end of the day.
