Itinerary

Day 1: Yangon – Kyaikhtiyo – Golden Rock (-, L, – )  

Depart Yangon early this morning for the 5 hour journey to Kyaikhtiyo and the Golden Rock, a huge boulder covered by gold leaf and balancing on the edge of a cliff. Golden Rock is one of Myanmar’s main pilgrimage sites.  The pagoda here is said to hold a hair of the Buddha and Buddhist from across the country come here to pay homage.

Near base camp have lunch at a local restaurant. From the base-camp, Travel by local open-air truck to the junction camp which has a distance of 45 Minutes’ walk to the final distance to Golden Rock (a porter will carry your bag). The uphill trek is along a paved trekking path and offers great views of the surrounding area. For an easier alternative, four porters can carry you uphill in a specially-made sedan chair allowing you to enjoy the views without all of the hard work! (Extra charge for sedan chair-client own account) or you can directly get to the top of the mountain from the base camp by an open Truck without taking the 45 minutes’ walk.

Overnight near Golden Rock.

Day 2: Kyaikhtiyo – Bago – Yangon (B, – , – )

After breakfast, return to the base camp by open-air truck and begin the return journey to Yangon. En route, stop in Bago, also known as Pegu. The sites in Bago are spread out around the town and you’ll spend time exploring and learning about the history and myths of the city. Stops include the 55-metre long reclining Shwethalyaung Buddha, the four seated Buddhas at Kyaikpun and the old palace of Kambozathadi.

The Mon-style Shwemawdaw Pagoda is the most outstanding religious monument in Bago. This golden temple stands at 114 metres tall, higher than Yangon’s Shwedagon Pagoda, and can be seen from around 10 kilometres outside of the city. While in Bago, take time to visit the town market and a Mon neighborhood where the locals once produced woven textiles. From Bago we’ll return to Yangon this afternoon. Before reaching the city limits, stop in Htaukkyan township to visit the Allied War Cemetery, the final resting place for more than 27,000 Allied Soldiers who perished during the World War II campaign in Myanmar.
