    Kyaiktiyo Pagoda
    Stop: 12 hours - Admission excluded
    At 5:00 AM - 5:45 AM: Pick up in Yangon In the morning between 5 AM to 5:45 AM you get picked up at your hotel and transfer to the meeting point at the Golden Express office. From here the tour starts. Around 7 AM: War Memorial You stop at the Htaukkyant War memorial cemetery, a cemetery for Allied soldiers of the British Commonwealth, who died in the battle in Burma (Myanmar) during the Second World War. Please note, that this is just a quick stop on the way. The cemetery cannot be visited. Around 8 AM: Breakfast We will stop for breakfast at 39 miles (Phayar Gyi Junction) on our way to Golden Rock. Around 10:30 AM: Kinpun base camp After two and a half hours, we reach the Kinpun base camp. Here you join an adventurous ride in a public open truck to reach the Golden Rock. Taking the local truck is an adventure itself as the road is very bumpy. You can also reach the Golden Rock Pagoda by cable car. The cable car gate is situated halfway to the mountain. If you wish to reach the Golden Rock by cable car, both truck and cable car fares must be paid. Around 11:30 AM: Walk to the Golden Rock local market Upon arrival at the truck station, you will walk up to the Golden Rock pagoda by passing lots of vendors - take this chance to snap some colorful photos. On the top of the hill, you have plenty of time to not only admire the magnificent view of the mountain landscape but especially the legendary Golden Rock. Around 3 PM: Lunch After spending around 1 ½ to 2 hours at the Golden Rock, you have lunch at a restaurant on top of the mountain. Around 5 PM: Return to Yangon In the afternoon, we head back to Yangon. There will be another stop 39 miles (Phayar Gyi Junction) for refreshments. Around 8 PM: Arrival Yangon Upon arrival in Yangon, you get dropped off at your hotel.
