EXT 3 The Golden Rock

  • Description of Sites

  • Brief Program

  • Detail Program


Kyaikhtiyo pagoda also called the Golden Rock exists over eleven hundred meters above sea level. It is a large boulder set on the very edge of a high cliff. The miracle of its secure perch is due to the Buddha's hair relic inside the pagoda built on the gilded rock. It is not only a pilgrimage tour. The journey from the base camp to mountain top passes Paung Laung mountain range comprising over 30 mountains. Exhilarating climb ups and downs, green scenery, with local pilgrims make you remember it all the time.
