    Our driver and guide will pick you up from your hotel around 6am in Yangon downtown and head to Kyaiktiyo Pagoda -The Golden Rock located in Kyaikhto Township and it will take approximately 3.5 hours by car drive through towns and some pay roads. When we arrive at the bottom of the mountain, we will transfer to an open trucks which will take about 45 minutes up to the hill. Pilgrims come here from far and wide to worship and add gold leaf to the rock, which seems to defy gravity by delicately balancing on the edge of the 1100 metre high mountain. Enjoy the panoramic 360 degree views of the surrounding Mon State Mountains from the summit and take some wonderful photos. Please note that proper dress is requires, no knees or shoulders showing. You can cross over a small bridge and stick the gold leaves on the Golden Rock, but only male is allowed. Female are not allowed to participate in this form of veneration. Visitors can go for an hour trekking to crow mouth, Kyee Kan Mouth along the natural road. If you could throw a coin into the mouth you will be granted a wish. Many local shops selling religious paraphernalia and one can also find many eateries and gift shops. In the afternoon, you will head back to the ground of the mountain and passing by Wor, Bago, Hlegu, Phaya Gyi and Phaya Lay Townships located on the roadside. We will stop at a local restaurant for a tea or coffee before head back to Yangon. Our driver will transfer you back to your hotel safely after an amazing trip to Kyaiktiyo Pagoda.

Up to the Summit
Oct 2019
Hop into the lorry and pack with the fellow "devotees"
Manage to get the corner seat so that I am able to hold on to side railing and also have unobstructed view up and down the long and winding road.
Midway change to the cable car for the 2nd half of the journey up. Hands free to take your photo and fear not for the hand phone to drop off.
Fascinating view but unfortunately repair and maintenance in progress and part of the Golden Rock is covered with scalffolding and seal off.
Try the sedan chair carried by four young men.
'Anxiety' going up and "fear" coming down
Wonderful and unforgettable experience

Overnight stay in Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda.
Oct 2018
It is a long car ride from Yangon to the truck station at the bottom of the hill. The truck ride was OK for us because our guide procured the seats in the cab with the driver. Otherwise it would have been a horrendous bumpy and bone jarring ride. However it was all worth it once we arrived at the Mountain Top Hotel very close to the Golden Rock Pagoda. Even though the hotel was close to Kyaikhtiyo, it was still a climb for us. We were there for the sunset and it was worth every step of the agonizing climb/walk up to the pagoda. One point I need to make is how friendly and kind the Burmese are. Of course there are the hawkers but if you do not buy from them, the are not angry at you or curse you out. They still smile and are still very considerate. When we were at the top, it started to rain and since my wife had trouble walking on the slippery road, a young boy (13 years) who was trying to sell us memorabilia which we have said no, just came up to her without saying anything and held my wife's hand so that she will not slip. This is the Burmese culture that I am so touched and appreciated.
