Kyaiktiyo (Golden Rock) Private Tour From Yangon

Experience one of Myanmar's most spiritual Pagoda

Your tour guide will meet you at the hotel at 7AM. Travel out of Yangon to “Kinmon Base Camp” at the foot of Mount Kyaiktiyo (3.5-hour drive). Arrive at Kinpun Base Camp in the late morning and transfer to a local truck to drive to the terminal near the Golden Rock Pagoda (1–hour drive uphill). All tourists must take local trucks to travel up and down the mountain. The truck ride goes up a winding hill. These local trucks operate from 6AM to 5PM.  The local truck will stop at the top of the mountain just 5 minutes walking distance from the Golden Rock Pagoda.


Lunch at the top of the mountain (suggested option: Mountain Top Hotel)

Your tour guide will show you around the Golden Rock Pagoda and surrounding area including local shops, monastery and other places of interest. The Pagoda was built more than 2,500 years ago and legend has it that it was built on a Hair Relic of the Lord Buddha. It can also be qualified as one of the wonders of the world by virtue of the fact that it sits uniquely at the apex of a huge, almost granite shaped boulder, which balances on the mountain. It has not fallen off the peak even through earthquakes. Local legend believes this is due to the power of the Hair Relic of Lord Buddha. Tripadvisor.com has rated it as one of the “most awe-inspiring places to visit in South East Asia”.


Head back down the mountain by local truck at 3PM. Optional visit to Bago or Taukkyan War Cemetery if time permits. Transfer by private car back to your hotel in Yangon (3.5-hour drive), arrive to the hotel by 7:30PM.
