2 Days Kyaikhtiyo

starting from $218

Make a pilgrimage with thousands of believers up to the Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda. At the shrine, there is a small stupa tower on top of a massive granite boulder known as the Golden Rock. Covered in golden leaves, it is precariously balanced on the edge of a cliff, and is reputedly “held in place by a single strand of Buddha’s hair”. On the return journey to Yangon, you will visit Bago, the capital city of the Mon Kingdom from the 14th to 16th century. Bago was also the capital city of the Second Burmese Empire, founded by King Bayinnaung.

Day 01 YANGON – KYAIKHTIYO (Golden Rock)

Early morning travel to Bago (approx. 2 hours). In Bago, visit the Kyaik Pun Pagoda, with its four giant Buddha statues and the interesting market with various types of vegetables, flowers and merchandise. Then travel on to Kyaikhtiyo (approx. 3½ hours). At Kinpun base camp you change from the car to a special open truck which takes you further to the Yet Thet middle station (ca. 45 minutes). The newly opened cable car gives you a wonderful view across the valley. From the cable car station, it is just a short walk (approx. 10 minutes) to the Golden Rock. At the shrine, there is a small stupa tower on top of a massive granite boulder known as the Golden Rock. Covered in golden leaves, it is precariously balanced on the edge of a cliff, and is reputedly “held in place by a single strand of Buddha’s hair”. In the late afternoon, you will enjoy the activities around the shrine, before returning back to your hotel for overnight.

Day 02 KYAIKHTIYO – BAGO – YANGON (B)

Those who are up early should definitely enjoy the sunrise at the cliffs. After breakfast you return back to the valley with the truck. Then you travel on to Bago (approx. 2½ hours). In Bago, visit the Shwemawdaw Pagoda, which, at a height of 114 metres, is Myanmar’s tallest pagoda, the Pyay May Pyay Pagoda, where visitors marvel at the large python and the Shwetharhlaung Pagoda, with its huge reclining Buddha which is more than 1000 years old. In the afternoon you change your means of transport again and take the train to Yangon. The two-hour journey takes you along isolated stretches of land, until you reach the outskirts of the city of Yangon. From now on, you can take a close look at the hustle and bustle of daily life. Upon arrival in Yangon transfer to your hotel for check-in and overnight stay.
Please note: if the train is cancelled, you will be driven to Yangon by car.
