All reviews golden rock day trip mountain top early morning entrance fee holy place walk up rainy season visit this place worth the trip worth the effort long drive truck ride base camp gold leaf roller coaster open truck
To get here, you can either walk for 5 hoursup the mountain or take the bus 2000 mmk. To enter you have to pay 10000 as a tourist which isn’t much so its worth it. You must be lucky to have a clear view but...More
We visited the golden rock on a car transfer from Bago to Mawlamyine. Once you get to Kapun base town everyone is shunted onto trucks for the 40min up to the summit. 2,000 kyat each direction. The truck is very bumpy and uncomfortable, arguably hazardous....More
The pilgrims and the tourist are the tourists attraction themselves up here ( poor me ) lol

Excellent sunrise experience, in a very local atmosphere! Amazing pilgrimage site with beautiful views.

An amazing open air temple with the giant golden rock teetering on the cliff that defies gravity. It is believed that Buddha’s hair is under trhe rock and that is what caused it from plummeting down the mountainside. Religious pilgramage and many locals and buddhist...More
Warning if you are travelling from Yangon. The bus company will tell you that all ticket buses are included. False.
It doesn't include the last bus (you take 3 different buses) going up (takes 20min) which cost 2,000 KYAT one way. Almost got scammed on...More

No, you cannot take your private car up the mountain to the pagoda on the rock. You have to either take the truck or the cable car to go up there. Even to take the cable car, you will still need to the cable car station at the foot of Rathay Mountain. There is a public bus service between the Kinpun Station (the usual place where all buses and cars stop) to the cable car station.
