Kyaiktiyo Pagoda is built on the top of a mountain and one of Myanmar's most prominent pilgrimage sites. According to legend, the rock and pagoda were placed here atop a strand of the Buddha's hair over two thousand years ago by a celestial king. While there's much debate around historical accuracy, the panoramic views from the Rock are stunning.

    Kyaiktiyo Pagoda
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Time and tide wait for no man. That’s why this excursion to Golden Rock leaves Yangon early in the morning. After approximately five hours you'll arrive in Kinpun, the base camp of Mt. Kyaiktiyo. Here you'll rest before boarding open trucks that take you up the mountain. From Yathetaung, you can either take a cable car (10 minutes) to the summit or hike it (~1 hour). Once atop the 1,100 metre mountain, you’ll be at one of Myanmar’s top pilgrimage sights. The Kyaiktiyo Pagoda, a magnificent gilded stupa upon a massive golden rock, seemingly defying gravity and amazing thousands of visitors each year. After enjoying the spectacular panoramic views and the serenity of the Golden Rock, you’ll head back to Kinpun and then Yangon.
