Golden Rock (Kyaikhtiyo) Day Tour

Early morning about 0500 AM pick up from your hotel drive to Kyaikhtiyo, 160 km down south of Yangon to visit Golden Rock a small Pagoda, insignificant in size but unique in its position. The small stupa sits on top of a massive rock which is completely covered with gold leaf and delicately balanced on the edge of the cliff. Upon arrival at base camp, leave your private car and proceed to the next camp, called Yathetaung, by special open truck, about an hour’s mountain drive. Take a light trek to the summit or you may sit on the easy-chair (own expense) carried by four men.
