This place had amazing view of Mandalay and the sunset made it magical. it was beautiful with shinning temple . It was crowded so was bit annoying and walking around with no shoes was not so comfortable as your feet got so dirty.

In Myanmar foe few days we did severals sunset view. The temple and view is nice, several nice spots. Of course as it is limited time you have several people so you are missing nice spot for pictures

It is not far the best view you can get in Mandalay. And everybody knows: crowded. But still, worth it. The strange thing is that you pay bike entrance, Pagoda entrance (as tourist), and also the guys watching your motorbike want money.

A lot. Good hike. Can be very hot and very crowded. Plan accordingly. We climbed in the morning to avoid crowds and heat...but missed sunset views. 😄
