Day 1 - Yangon - Bago - Golden Rock
After picking you up at your hotel in Yangon, transfer to the former capital Bago
, housing lots of historical sights. After a short stop at the Allied War Graves Cemetery, you see the Shwemawdaw Pagoda, only one spire taller than the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. Before Lunch, head to Kanbawzathadi Palace, where visitors get a lot of information about the rich history of the Mon-State. See one of the most beautiful reclining Buddha statues in Myanmar - the 55 m long Shwe Tha Lyaung Buddha. In the afternoon you arrive at the Kyaik Pun Pagoda, known for its four towering images of Buddha.
Afterwards, transfer to Kinpun base camp. Arriving there, you join an adventurous ride in a public open truck to reach the top of the hill. Reaching the splendid Golden Rock Pagoda
at dusk, you will experience an exceptional atmosphere as the sun forms all shapes of clouds into a sea of warm colours.
Day 2 - Golden Rock - Yangon
In the early morning, you walk up to the Golden Rock Pagoda again to see the sun rising. Admire the great view of the mountain landscape and the legendary Golden Rock, which your guide provides interesting information about. After sightseeing, return to your hotel. Transfer back to Yangon after check-out.
Golden Rock will be undergoing renovation from January 2019 to presumably March 2019. During this period, the pagoda will be covered with bamboo scaffolding to apply gold leaf as a part of the restoration work.
