Kyaiktiyo - The Golden Rock

Simply known as the Golden Rock, the Kyaiktiyo Pagoda is one of the most magical destinations in Myanmar. For both Buddhists pilgrim and tourist alike, it is very much a ‘must visit place’. The Golden Rock is located in the southeast of Myanmar, on a magnificent mountain peak, deep inside the rain-forest of Mon State. Take a break from the hurly burly of city life and relax your mind and body as you take in the changing scenery from the river bustling with both passenger and local fishing boats to the verdant freshness of the majestic rain forest as you make what will certainly be an unforgettable journey to the Golden Rock. The history of the pagoda is legendary rather than factual as no official record of its past exists. The Buddhists believe that it was built during the lifetime of Buddha himself - nearly 2500 years ago. Your guide will doubtless regale you with this and many other equally dramatic tales.
