Renown as one of the iconic sights of Myanmar, a visit to the sacred Mt. Popa is worth your day with the chance to see the 1518-meter-high extinct volcano from the best point before winning its top after 777 steps, visiting Taung Kalat monastery and enjoying the spectacular views of vast green plateus around. After the sweating climb, it is time to relax on an upriver boat along Irrawaddy river to Kyaukku U Min, also known as a Rock Cave Tunnel, which will feast your eyes with notable architecture, exquisite stone carvings and arouse your curiosity with an ancient legend behind.

    Morning visit Mt. Popa & sugar factory, afternoon sail up Irrawaddy river to discover Kyaukku U Min temple

After having breakfast, we spend one hour driving from Bagan to Mt. Popa. It is believed that Mt. Popa is the core of an extinct volcano last active 250000 years ago. The fertile earth on the slope and the surrounding plains has covered with a large number of rare plants such as orchids and a profusion of tree. Perhaps, the best feeling is when we reach the top of Mt. Popa after 30-minute climbing up and cherish the breath-taking views of surrounding landscape. Near Mt. Popa, we can visit the sugar Factory to know how they make sugar from palm tree. In the afternoon, we will sail down the Ayeyarwaddy River to reach KyaukGu U Min, a cave temple with excellent sandstone carvings and giant Buddha images. Splendid natural settings blend perfectly with antique humans' construction, surely an ideal place to enjoy dusk.

Warm notice: From October to March, you can request a hot-air balloon ride which takes you above the charming Bagan plain and the impressive Ayeyarwaddy River to watch sunrise. Remember to get up early.

River trip to explore the cracked rock cave temple of Kyauk Gu U Min

Drive to the banks of the Irrawaddy River and board in a private wooden motorboat on Aye Yar Jetty for upriver sailing to Kyauk Gu U Min, a remote temple located in quieter side of Bagan. The unique beauty of the temple appreciated by floral designed entrance, exquisite stone carvings depicting religious figures, inner-wall Buddha statues and the notable feature of light wells. There is also a cave found at the back of the temple since it was built against the site of precipitous cliff near the bank of mighty Irrawaddy river. Learn of the legend story behind this temple cave which was largely believed to be a shelter from the invading Mongols. While travelling slowly along the river, take your chance to capture fabulous views of riverside villages, fishermen and local boats passing by. 


Trek up and enjoy spectacular views on the top of the holy Mt. Popa

Mt Popa - a solitary peak topped by gold stupas, is well-known as the birth place of Myanmar’s ‘nats’ or spirits. (50 kilometers southeast from central Bagan ~ 1.5 hours to get there by car). To reach the top, you need to remove shoes and socks and climb the 777 steps to the shrine at the top of the peak.  Along the way, there are a multitude of cunning monkeys expecting treats. Sometimes these mischivous hosts can get a little aggressive so it's recommended to take well care of your possessions. Enjoy your reward once conquering the climb with with stupas glistening gold and nothing-can-beat views from the top.
