Day 2: HIKING KYAIK HTI YOE (GOLDEN ROCK)
After breakfast at the hotel, climbing with special coach to Golden Rock Temple compound looking the sightseeing. It is the famous legendary Pagoda on the Golden Rock and is also an attractive one for those who love hiking. Crossing through the tropical jungle by a rocky path, listening to the birds’ singing, it is fantastic journey to the TOP and enjoy wonderful panorama at the top of the mountain..
Kyaikhtiyoe is believed that ones will get prosperity and success for their future. On the extreme verge of this sloping rock table, and actually over hanging it by nearly half, is perched this wonderful boulder (now completely gilded with gold), thirty feet high and surrounded by the pagoda. By gently rocking the boulder a thread can be passed underneath; seemly appears as if the additional weight of a few pounds or a strong wind, would send it sliding down from the place it has occupied for unknown centuries watching over three thousand feet into the sloping valley beneath.
In the afternoon, come down to Kin Mon base camp and continue drive to back to Yangon.
After the tour, transfer to your hotel in Yangon.
