We visited this pagoda in January of this year. It was very cold in the morning and in the evening. On the verge of the cliff, the existence of the goldern boulder seemingly about to fall off at any moment is unbelievable. I found happiness...More

It’s quite a rough ride up to this magnificent golden rock. You have to sit in a truck with 40 other people and join this crazy ride up to the hill. It is better if you pay for a 2nd seat, because you there isn’t...More

The rock is beautiful and very sacred for the locals so you will be packed with Burmese in the truck to climb the mountain that it is quite a funny experience. Not many foreigners (at least in March).

After a rather tedious drive from Yangon it takes another 45 min. on the bed of an open truck climbing up to the Golden Rock. Spectacular views - especially during late afternoon hours or at sunset will reward you for the long journey. Suggest to...More

You really should go there, it is an amazing place. Now, taking roller package up there I am not sure. Travelling Myanmar is easiest with backpack.
