After early breakfast, we soon start out a rural escape by car to Bago region to visit Wingabaw Elephant Resort Camp where you could meet and interact with a special family of 14 wild elephants. Upon arrival at 9:00 am, you could have chance to watch elephant dancing show, feed them foods and trek through the nearby forest where they are gazing over. After having fun time with these lovely giants in wildlife habitat, you could gain deeper appreciation for this one of the most treasured native species in Myanmar.
After lunch break, get in car and we continue with a scenic 2.5-hour drive to Golden Rock temple located on top of Kyaikhtiyo mountain. When reach the base camp in the foot of mountain, we join in a local open-air truck and continue a 45-minute ride up to last stop at Kyaikhtiyo village. Check in the nearby Mountain Top hotel – the nicest local hotel, which is just 10 minutes walking from Golden Rock. When the sun is about to set down, we climb up to visit the giant sacred Golden Rock which is hanging over a steep cliff overlooking a deep valley. While the sun is shining its last lights over the rock, the gold coat make it look like a sparkeling set of treasure. Joing the lines of ardent believers praying quietly the rock among thousands burning candles, little bells and good smell of incense sticks, it is the right time for you to relax your mind in between the peaceful atmosphere and impressive scenery the place has to offer.

Awe-inspiring adventure to the sacred Mt. Kyaikhtiyo

Highlighted on the top of Mt. Kyaikhtiyo, Golden rock pagoda is well-known as one of the most sacred religious sites in Myanmar with the giant balancing rock perched on the edge of a mountain for over 2,500 years. ITo the intriped travellers and risk takers, the 30-min truck journey up the winding roads with lots of sharp turns to reach the pagoda will be such an unforgetbale experience not to be missed out. Listening to the story behind the magical rock while witnessing hundreds of devotees line up to light candles and paste golden leaves to the rock, you are to see how much this place means to locals as a way of life. Lately, warp up your special day watching the sun going down from the mountain top as the rock lights up magically.
