Kyaikhtiyo

 

Kyaikhtiyo or "Golden Rock" Pagoda, one of the most famous landmarks of Myanmar, is located in Kyaikhto Township, Mon State. Over 110 km above sea level, the small pagoda, 7.3 meters highs, sits on top of the golden rock, a big, gold leaded boulder, balancing on the edge of a cliff on the top of Kyaikhtiyo Hill. The boulder and the cliff barely touch each other.
No one have the logical explanation on how the pagoda was built.

How to Get There

The famous legendary Pagoda on the Golden Rock about 160 km from Yangon. It is a 11 kilometer uphill climb for the hikers from Kinpun base camp. A narrow, steep motor road also winds up to a point, Yathay Hill, about 1.6 kilometer from the Pagoda. Sedan chairs, carried by four man, can be rented for the weary travellers.
