Destination in Bago - Kyaikhtiyo - Hpa an - Mawlamyine

Bago
 

An ancient capital of Mon and Myanmar Kings is accessible by rail and by road from Yangon. Nearly 50 miles away from Yangon, it takes about two hours drive to get there and can visit there in a day-return trip. Bago is one of the major historical cities in Myanmar as it was the capital of the second Myanmar Empire and proud of its history. The royal palace 'Kanbawzathadi ' of king Bayintnaung, the founder of Second Myanmar Empire is located south of Shwemawdaw pagoda. Now the great palace has been reconstructed on the same spot exactly according to its design and plan. Places of interest are Shwemawdaw pagoda, Hinthagone pagoda, Shwethalyaung Reclinding Buddha image, Kyaik Pun pagoda and Kanbawzathadi palace.

 

   
Kyaikhtiyo ( Golden Rock Pagoda )
 

One of the wonders of the world, Kyaikhtiyo pagoda known as Golden Rock pagoda is situated in Kyaikhto township in Mon State, 110 miles away from Yangon and a five or six hours drive from there. Built on a huge precarious boulder which stands on the edge of the cliff and the boulder does not touch the rock below it. Along the way, a number of small stalls selling all sorts of forest products such as cuttings of fragrant wood, orchid plants, medicinal herbs, roots, barks, food and drink stalls line the mountain path. From the top of the Mt. Kyaikhtiyo, you will see the thick virgin ever green forests as far as your eyes can see. Climbing up on foot from Kimpun Base Camp or half- way Camp Mount Hermit will be enjoyable tracking.
