We visited in a private car & did the climb up Mt Popa, on the way we stopped at tbe side of the road to take a picture of Mt Popa & a woman asked for 1,200.00 KYT for the privilege. When asked why I'd...More
It’s about 1.5 hours from Bagan, so we hired a car and a driver to check it out. It’s a step climb to the top, so if you’ve got mobility issues this isn’t for you. If you’re somewhat adverse to steep climbs in tropical heat...More
People in all walks of life visits the place whenever they are in Bagan. A holy and historical place with 360 view of the surroundings. A bit dirty and unhygienic. I even see some local guys giving an energy drink to those monkeys to the...More
Drove to mount pops expecting a Myanmar highlight. Seeing the temple lying on top of the mountain was still promising. But after climbing all the stairs it was very disappointing. The views were great, but the pagoda was a dirty place and not worth the...More
The view is great from the top but the aggressive monkeys and the filth on the way up and down was not worth it to us. It is beautiful from afar. It is a shame as if there was a rule that locals and tourists...More
I will keep it short: a lot of stairs with monkeypoo on it and you will be walking the stairs with your bare feet. And the reward will be a cheap looking temple with monkeys trying to steal your food. The view is oke, but...More
Mount Popa is an amazing place to visit. We went for a day trip from Bagan and stayed for lunch at the Mount Popa resort with a spectacular view of the golden Monastery and the breathtaking landscape that reach the endless horizon. It is a...More
One hour from Bagan, worth the visit just for the day. It is a unique experience to climb mount Popa with all the monkeys around. There are some ladies that make the best papaya noddle salad on the way up, right before you need to...More

What an interesting question. Did you read the reviews? What are you looking for in your travels? If you want to experience Myanmar and the rituals/life of the people, then go. If you are looking for some 5-star resort-ish type place, stay home. Its dirty. Its poor. There are monkeys every where, which also means poop. The stalls set up by venders are nothing but cheap dirty junky stuff. With that said, i enjoyed being there-immensly. I didnt climb the steps. I wandered about the village that has sprouted up at the base and rubbed elbows with the locals. One of my best days in the country! I fear for you asking-are you sure this country is the right adventure for you????
