 Sensations : Golden Rock-2 Days / 1 Night

 
     
Day 1: YANGON - GOLDEN ROCK

Up to 220 km of good road awaits us on this day, we will take approximately four hours to reach to the gravity defying Kyaiktiyo Pagoda, the world famous “Golden Rock”. After the scenic route on the road through rural Myanmar we will reach to the base of Mount Kyaiktiyo, our route continues now on an truck, which will be able to continue on better grip of the road prior to reaching to the station near the top, where we will have to continue on a 45 minutes trekking to reach to the top. All these steps are needed to reach the small spire of 18ft (5.5m) believed to enshrine a hair relic of the Buddha, set on top of a huge boulder which in turn is balanced on the edge of a cliff. The wide open platform gives a fantastic view of distant mountains, especially at sunset. Overnight at Golden Rock.
