Golden Rock

Kyaikhtiyoe Pagoda, also known as Golden Rock, is one of the main pilgrimage sites for local people, you don’t want to miss that place as it is one of the top ten destinations in Myanmar. Only 4 hours drive from Yangon, the pagoda is situated on the mountain cliff, only 18 ft. height. It is strongly believed as a wishful stupa. If you love short trekking, do that from Kimpun Base Camp or you can now have the cable car ride from Yathae Taung to the top of the mountain, where the stupa is. You can do the day trip from Yangon but we totally recommend to stay overnight there for it’s breathtaking sunset and sunrise views. If you are here in March, that’s the perfect time for it’s Pagoda festival.
