How to travel from Inle Lake to Kyaithtiyo

My group is 12 persons. We intend to travel from Inle Lake to Kyaiktiyo in the morning. Is there a bus for this route? and how about schedule? What is the brand name of bus? Can I go up and down golden rock pagoda in one day? Please advise.

Thank you.

From Inle? No and no. Fly to Yangon, and do a 2-day trip from there. One cannot rush a trip to Golden Rock, it is a bit of a hassle to get there and back.

Hire a driver to take you. That is by far the most comfortable (and quickest) way to get there & back.

If you want to just go up to Golden Rock for the day and hire a car departing Yangon, make a very early morning start. Once you arrive at Kinpun base camp, you have to take a truck to the top of the mountain, then hike up it for about 30 minutes to get to where the rock is. Those trucks don't run very late, maybe until 2:00 or 3:00pm I guess, so you have to get back down by then, and then meet your driver at Kinpun.

We went to Kyaithtiyo last month. We hired a toyota vista car included driver, fuel and gates' fee. It cost us USD 200. We are a group of 4 and the cost was shared between us, so I paid USD 50.
