This is one of few tall hills close to Bagan so one of the few places you can see panorama of all of Bagan. Things can be often cloudy in the morning so it might be hard to see, but cloud soon burns off.

This is the most important temple in the area and the views are great in every direction. It's a very busy temple since all the local worshippers go there as well as all the tourists but it is well worth the drive up there.

Taken there by tour guide. Already seen quite a few pagodas, so they are starting to seem the same. I think this one is the "frog pagoda". Nice views from the hillside. It is worth a look.
