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.
As you go up Sagaing Hill stop off at the Aung Myae Oo Monastic Education School (visitors welcome) - they seem to be doing a really good job and if you've packed any stationery supplies, this would be a good place to donate them. At...More

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.
