Meditate in the magical Golden Rock pagoda
Known as one of the most sacred sites in devout Buddhist Myanmar, Golden Rock pagoda is rather outstanding and attractive for its special location and bizzare look with a giant golden rock precariously balancing on the edge of a cliff on the top of Kyaikhtiyo mountain. In order to visit the rock pagoda, you are to join a thrilling open truck ride up on the winding road through the forest mountain. Just like a special roller coaster trip, 45-minute driving up mountain will surely get you into the feeling of free and exhilarated before reaching the Golden rock and admire the breath-taking scene of the majestic gilded rock between the spectacular nature surrounding.
